Does anyone know why the lights at Dupont and Swarthmore and Hetzel and Chester Pike are now on timers?

They used to be trip lights and there were no problems. Why the change?

I also dislike the timed traffic lights. The traffic lights are state controlled by PennDot as Swarthmore and Chester Pike are PA state highways.  Traffic light prescriptions are issued for each light.  Repairs must follow the PennDot prescription. The matter's out of the Borough's hands. 

If you think the light is defective, or the prescription is not correct, you can call PennDott and make a traffic light control complaint. Speaking with the Borough Engineer may also shed light and he may have a better connection inside PennDot.  Hope this is helpful
