Issues: pedestrian light

With the quick walk signal (5 timed seconds), with cars turning right-on-red from Beacon to Washington and cars running the yellow, it is difficult to cross from E-to-W or W-to-E at the cross walk by the hospital. It's not unusual for older or handicapped to be caught in on-coming traffic.

The switch for the crosswalk on the northwest side of the California St./Bridge St. intersection does not seem to work. Basically you can push the button solidly, wait for several cycles light and not get a walk sign. The switch on the northeast side of the intersection seems to work, so if someone presses that one you can get across. Otherwise its a dangerous intersection to cross as a pedestrian when any of the lights are green.

I pressed the pedestrian walk button many times and waited for 2 cycles of lights before jaywalking. The button does not work on the short street side of the intersection.
