Description

Flashing light for people walking the bike path to cross Lafayette close to the lead mills and Salem/Marblehead line. Unfortunately drivers completely ignore the light. We get halfway across when one side of traffic stops but people speed through on the other side, nearly hitting us. This should be a full traffic light, not a flashing orange light.

also asked...
Q. What is the type of signal that is not working?
A. Flashing orange light does not make cars stop when people are on the crosswalk
Q. Please describe any other information related to the malfunction/damage
A. I have brought this up on our Nextdoor app and a number of people agreed, this is a VERY DANGEROUS CROSSING. We don't want someone to be killed before this issue is solved.
