Description

The walk timer at this intersection (crossing A st while on Congress) is about 10 seconds long and only comes up every 3-4 minutes. This leads most pedestrians to get frustrated and cross when they don't have the light, but this can be a dangerous intersection with lots of traffic turning that may not see pedestrians. I've seen several people practically get hit here in the last few months. Better pedestrian right of way would go a long way to making this a safer intersection for drivers and pedestrians.
