What’s Driving You Crazy: The Kino, Tucson Marketplace intersection

TUCSON –The intersection at Kino Parkway and Tucson Marketplace is what’s driving you crazy!

“Traffic turning left always refuses to stop when the green light for straight traffic starts…causing a fight over the intersection at the same time,” Denise says.

News 4 Tucson’s Allie Potter spoke with T-DOT and they said the northbound left turn is timed out at the same time with the northbound traffic.

When the protected arrow ends for northbound, that is when the southbound movement begins.  T-DOT says, this only works as well as drivers’ compliance with the protected-only left turn.

Drivers who execute a left-turn in front of on-coming vehicles facing a green light… are failing to yield the right-of-way. That is a violation of the law and you could receive a citation for it.
