The pedestrian crossing on the west side Massachusetts Ave. across the right slip lane onto NB Garden St. is uncontrolled, near Dawes Island. Drivers repeatedly fail to yield right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks. Even when some drivers yield to pedestrians, there is always a multiple threat scenario - where a driver in the adjacent turn lane fails to notice pedestrians and yield the right-of-way. I suggest the following safety counter-measures be considered: Rapid Flash Beacon for pedestrians crossing slip lane; raised crosswalk; shark teeth yield marks in advance of the crosswalk; or install a traffic signal (that is coordinated with the Mass Ave. & Cambridge St. signal) that would allow for an exclusive pedestrian AND exclusive right turn phase.
