Description

The light at 10th Ave. & Demonbreun does not allow pedestrians to safely cross Demonbreun. The walk signal comes on at exactly the same time as the green light for 10th Ave. cars. There was a very close call on Monday. Cars ignore the 'pedestrian right-of-way' because they have a green light. They whip around the corner, coming from Cummins Station w/o regard for walkers who are actually crossing at the "walk" signal they have across Demonbreun. With all the pedestrian traffic from the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, this is a hazard. The traffic light must allow a walk signal w/o a green light for cars at the same time.
