Description

The walk sign to cross 16th Street along the northern side of East-West Highway is not long enough. If a pedestrian begins crossing when the walk sign is illuminated, he/she cannot, at a reasonable pace, cross before the sign begins blinking to stop. This is dangerous for slower pedestrians in particular, as cars turning right from WB East-West onto NB 16th street consistently turn during the walk signal cycle. I personally have had cars turn so close to me while the walk signal is illuminated as to be close enough for me to touch without so much as a pivot.
