Flashing lights near firehouses needed

Editor,

There was a time when the road areas in front of the firehouses in Ogden had signals. The yellow flashers served as reminders to motorists that the firehouses were near. And, the red lights were supposed to stop traffic when a fire truck was entering the road to answer a call.

Well, those signals were removed. And recently, when a truck was answering a call, it had to wait for the traffic to voluntarily stop. I was the first motorist to stop because I saw the truck there waiting with the flashers flashing. Was it my car stopped that the other motorists saw when they also stopped? Did they stop because I stopped?

We really need to have those signals back.
