Description

There is a 4-way intersection, and all four ways have "No Turn on Red" signs. This leads to a lot of unnecessary waiting and people behind in the rightmost lanes getting angry. Many times, people take the right on red anyway, since the lights are taking far too long, and no traffic is coming. Solution?

At the same intersection, going westbound on Washington (toward Quincy Center), it almost looks like there is a third lane to turn right (in front of Bagnelli Auto Parts) when it's actually a break-down lane. Drivers do not understand this and use this lane as a right turn lane. This causes near-accidents all the time! Drivers in the ACTUAL right lane go to turn right, and someone is there, to their right, that should not be.
Solution? How about painting it more clearly marked, with diagonal stripes? That would make it clearer to drivers that there is no lane there.
