The Copperas Cove Police Department saw a dangerous situation developed over the weekend when the traffic lights at State Highway 190 and RG III BLVD stop working.

CCPD sent out the word of the traffic situation around 7:30 PM Saturday. It is worth bookmarking this warning should these lights stop working again because it can really cause some dangerous traffic conditions, especially if someone is not paying attention.

Traffic on East and West 190 does not stop, so when these lights in the photo above go out, an individual could turn out into traffic with oncoming vehicles traveling at full speed.

The lights at this intersection are under the watch of the Texas Department of Transportation, and new parts had to be ordered to get them operational again. In the meantime, please be careful when driving in this area of Copperas Cove.
