Description

If someone (Driver 1) is coming from SE 28th PL to take a left onto Richard's Road during evening rush hour, the traffic often lets the person out (because the traffic is so slow). But often, other traffic (Driver 2) is using the center lane as a left-turn filter lane to take a left way down at SE 30th St (2 blocks further south). That use of the center lane is difficult to anticipate by Driver 1.
Living in Sequoia Grove apartments means that about once a week I come close to an accident right there.

Here is a suggested change (attached).
1. Make a raised island north of the intersection to stop southbound drivers from using center lane as left filter.

The only downside is, the property on the east of the image would no longer be able to turn into their south entrance coming from the north. But they have many alternatives, so I don't think that would be a problem
