Heavy Traffic
Photograph by Nina Berman

Construction equipment routinely rumbles through the intersection of Main Street and Little Avenue en route to the burgeoning building sites around Driggs, Idaho. More houses mean more traffic, and passing locals now have another reason to pause and consider their town's rapid growth: Driggs's first stoplight was installed here last June. Some motorists had trouble adjusting to the change—two accidents occurred at the intersection during the stoplight's first month in action.
