No matter how long the signal is, there’s always an idiot at the wheel who is in a rush to get somewhere and doesn’t care about the light color.

This intersection is a death trap because they shortened the length of the green light for the north and south bound traffic on 21st street so that cars are constantly blowing through the yellow and red lights. You can’t depend on the walk signal, you have to make sure that there isn’t a car running the light before crossing the street. I’m surprised that more people haven’t been hit!
