Traffic Light Causes Traffic at Roundabout

Once upon a time there was crossroad,
Where all the busy city centres meet,
During peak hours the cars would fill the road,
It would cause a traffic Jam indeed,

Then the goverment wanted to ease it,
decided to create a roundabout to fix it,
The construction originally caused terrible traffic,
Upon completion proved to be terrific,

The main highway had an underpass,
three lanes on the roundabout made it fast,
left lane was for the immediate exits,
the rest was for the later exits,

But soon troubles appeared,
more accidents had occured,
as some drivers would misuse the lanes,
and cause themselves so much pain.

At first the government tried to educate the public,
on TV Showed how to negotiate the through the traffic,
Solid lines was not meant to crossed,
It seemed the message was still lost,

Recently, the government tried to fix it,
Putting a traffic light around it,
Hoping that it would control the traffic,
Alas, it turned out so horrific,

The traffic jams actually became worse,
On the very day it opened first,
cars up to a few miles were waiting
students actually resorted to walking,

I trust the government is wondering,
How on earth was this happening,
while lot of people have been asking,
whose ideas was it for the traffic light placing,

Was there any research done?
Or was the idea a made up one?
was there a simulation that proved,
that the roundabout by a traffic light be soothed,

Now project was up and running,
the project manager head may be asking,
would they have to start all over?
or somehow fix it if they are clever.

Let us wait and see,
if the powers that be,
can solve this problem quickly,
Let us wait and see 🙂

Got an e-mail from wordpress.com that someone was organizing a National Poem Writing Competition. Not in Brunei, but hey, why not.
Basically, just write one poem everyday for the month of april, it can be on paper, or if possible post it on a blog, or facebook.
I haven’t written poems in a while, so why not…

Running safe on the road
Running on the road is fun,
Here are tips to a safe run,
Go against the traffic,
That is very basic,
Wear clothes that are bright,
So people can see you in their sight,
Be considerate and thoughtful,
If not it might get aweful,
Running keeps you healthy,
But do t forget your safety,
And after all is said and done,
I hope you all have a fun and safe run.
