Why are all the lights that intersect with 12th St NW so long? McKinley, Market, Cleveland Ave, ect... People routinely go through the red lights because the lights are so long. Lights in huge busy intersections in Belden Village are timed better. There is no state mandate saying that the light must take so long. 20 - 30 seconds could be taken off of each cycle and it would make much more sense. Please take a look at this so people who actually live in the city can drive around without unnecessary annoyances.
