    This issue was fixed for a few weeks but has reverted back again, along with the same nuisance effects for both drivers and residents. The light stays red half the time (30sec per minute) whereas normally it should only trigger red if there's cross traffic or pedestrians. At the busiest times of day it makes it harder for people to pull out of their driveways with the traffic backed up. Drivers who blare music from their cars who would normally pass right by, instead sit at the intersection for a full 30 sec. Late in the evening large semi-trucks come screeching to a halt, surprised by the light change. Ambulances normally stay silent in the wee hours, are obligated to turn on the siren to because the light is changing and they must blow through safely. It would be a shame if any these things needlessly contributes to an accident there.

  • 434-438 Paradise Rd Town of Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    Both of the lights coming out of the CVS plaza, and the Chipotle plaza are very short. It took me 5 traffic lights to get out of the Chipotle side (to go straight).
    Why is there a left turn arrow if it's never green... goes directly to blinking yellow. It would be more convenient to let the cvs plaza exit for some time, then the Chipotle plaza, then back to paradise road. Today sitting in traffic there was no one going through the lights at paradise, but a good size line coming out of cvs and Chipotle plazas. I think this needs to be looked into.

    Light coming from the plaza is extremely short, can only get a couple cars through at a time. Traffic is backing way up into the plaza.
