Description

Why is it warranted for a continuous green on a pedestrian light vs. blinking amber or even blinking green to caution traffic instead. It causing near miss for pedestrians in crosswalks on School (at night mostly) cars going 30-40mph around this turn. They dont see people in School St crosswalk or cars in/out of corner parking lot on School St until right up on them. Drivers go 30 - 40 mph and blow thru Stop Sign at Grove St intersection (no warning sign) due to green light - I am seeing many pedestrian lights always on green but this area needs to caution drivers instead. Green always on seems unnecessary for traffic to flow?
