How do you get your city or town to erect traffic lights in certain intersections?

I am so sick and tired of a certain intersection in my town that was so poorly designed, I'm ready to take the fight to city hall. Does anyone have any suggestions?

That's exactly what you do, take the fight to city hall.. Contact your local
Rep with the reasons why you need a light.. Find out when the next city council meeting is held and go put up a fight.. FIGHTFIGHTFIGHT!!!!

Hmmmm, considering DavidLingard's answer (a couple down from you) I think I need to be kinda crafty. Like tell them I have hours of footage and some of which has people nearly getting into car crashes (wouldn't be too far from the truth). That way they'll have to take serious consideration into putting in traffic lights.

Yep.. There has to be a need.. This reminds me of an episode of Modern Family.. Claire (mom) wanted to get a stop sign put in her neighborhood because people drove too fast.. She took video and stuff... It was hysterical, not sure your situation is.. ;0) good luck, FG....

Yes sir, you first need to see if the intersection can be zoned as light commercial or something, then have a deal worked out with Starbucks to have exclusive rights to business.......
Soon city council will hand your problem intersection with a stop light so that no one will miss the opportunity to stop and get a latte.

It is a four all way stop with stop signs. What makes it such a huge problem, is the fact that it is ridiculously large (or shall I say, the crosswalks are enormous, and very far away from each other). So, what happens 99.9999% of the time is, you get these geniuses that think they got there first because everyone is so far away from each other. People almost always get p!ssed off and give each other the bird and yell and scream. It's ridiculous!!!

Suggest a round-about intersection.
