A few years ago we suggested at a Southern Shores Town Council meeting that police officers control the flow of northbound traffic from U.S. Hwy. 158 to N.C. Hwy. 12 to just beyond Duck, with all traffic lights set on blinking yellow. The arriving traffic is similar to the departing traffic from a large stadium event, we said. Police can move it along better than it can move itself. No one on the Council said a word.
Update at 5:45 p.m.: Northbound traffic stopped on Hickory, East Dogwood, and South Dogwood trails.
