    directional challenges? You can’t go north on Telegraph and you can’t go west on 300 East

    Ok, first and foremost, ALL FOUR DIRECTIONS CANNOT HAVE A FLASHING YELLOW TURN SIGNAL AT THE SAME TIME! Second, and just as goofy, how can one car be going north on telegraph, which is possible, and the other be going SOUTH on 300 east??? Really??? Doesn’t anyone there at St. George News even read this crap before you all just send it out?

    Also, just FYI, there are a bunch of tow companies here in St. George, not just the TWO that all your photographers seem to catch full door advertising shots of! Either show all of us, or NONE!!

    If a car is northbound on Telegraph it isn’t going to be able to travel far.:)

    Traffic on 300 E goes north and south. Traffic on Telegraph goes east and west.

    Maybe its time to run a story or an advertorial on the proper way to navigate a flashing yellow light (arrow). I bet you could sell it as an advertorial to one of the driving schools!
