The Nashville Traffic Light was designed to reduce vehicle speed and decrease the likelihood of crashes in downtown Nashville.
Its installation has been widely criticized by residents, drivers and other motorists, and critics say it is an example of excessive government overreach.
The first phase of the traffic light installation, which started in March, was completed with the help of the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
The project has been controversial because it was funded by the Tennessee Lottery, which then raised $1.7 million for the project from the Tennessee Economic Development Commission.
The DOT’s funding came with conditions that included requiring traffic signal operators to wear uniforms that would not violate state law and requiring the traffic signal operator to wear a helmet and belt.
The DOT also required that the installation be conducted within a radius of at least 100 feet of a business, a residential area or a church.
Nashville officials have said that the traffic sign was an attempt to encourage drivers to use alternative routes and encourage motorists to use the downtown area for public transportation.
In June, a federal judge ruled that the DOT’s traffic light policy violated the Constitution and Tennessee law.
The judge ruled in favor of a Nashville woman who sued to stop the installation of the signal.
The lawsuit was dismissed by the judge in July.
The lawsuit said that traffic signal placement in downtown has increased because of the city’s traffic plan and the implementation of the Nashville Traffic Signal.
Ticket buyers can pay by cash or in person.
According to a Nashville Police Department news release, the city has issued 6,500 tickets for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The most common citations are $100 for a single passenger vehicle, $25 for a group of three or more, $15 for a commercial vehicle and $20 for a passenger vehicle.
