Description

At the intersection of West 4th Street (which turns into East Berkeley Street) and Albany Street I constantly witness near accidents and actual accidents where cars in the far left lane continue to drive forward onto East Berkeley Street even though the signs clearly posted indicate left lane for left turn only. Not only is this a hazard for all drivers but pedestrians as well. I can't completely blame the drivers because while it is their fault for missing/ignoring the posted signage, the lane markers on the ground are misleading. The marked lanes make it appear that going straight instead of taking a left turn is allowed.
