10 double traffic lights were installed at the Agustina Ramírez and Río de Las Cañas points, specifying that the lights are high quality LEDs that allow the motorist a better view of the traffic light change.
It should be noted that the authority is asking motorists who drive through these traffic lights every day to leave their homes early to go to work or to leave their children at school.
To date, there are a total of 103 traffic lights in the city and given the growth of the city, it was necessary to install new traffic lights to free up traffic quickly.
