Description

There are a lot of residents that work in the city in this area now and take the bus in and out of the city. This Fellsway/Medford St/Central Ave intersection has become incredibly dangerous to cross. There is never a chance where NO cars are passing in which pedestrians can cross to the other side of the street after getting off the number 100 bus. We just run across when drivers are on their phones and don't realize the light is green for them or they intentionally let us cross, but many times I've seen cars not aware that people are crossing, specially in the darker months and several people have been on the verge of getting hit by a car. Lights should all be red for a few minutes to give pedestrians the chance to safely cross the street.
