When the adjacent railroad crossing is in use, ALL traffic at this intersection receives a red light.
Traffic southbound on John M. Clark Drive could safely go straight (into Office Depot) or turn left onto Boices Lane while a train is passing. The traffic light should be configured to permit this.
Because the light isn't set for this, one of two things happen: Traffic backs up unnecessarily on Clark Drive, or people run the red light. They shouldn't have to run a red light in this circumstance.
