Description

The stoplight that faces Sperry St where it intersects Whalley (roughly across from the Staples parking lot) has a VERY long red and a very short green. I waited at this stoplight for what could have been 5 minutes the other day. Too long a red light makes drivers either a) impatient or b) think the light is broken, and as a a result they are making illegal left turns on red onto Whalley to get through the light. Please even out the lengths of the red and green light times at this stoplight that faces Sperry St, before anymore accidents happen!
