The position of the traffic lights at this intersection is awkward as the green light for cars traveling eastbound on Bryant St. can be easily mistaken as a sign for cars exiting I-80 at 4th street to proceed. I have witnessed numerous near accidents here, as usually only local or familiar drivers understand the traffic signal. As a side issue, taxi cabs often line up on the right side of 4th street @ Bryant (in front of Orson) and are invisible to cars turning the sharp right onto 4th street from the freeway. These obstructions block the right lane and only become visible as one turns onto 4th, which is nearly too late. Send someone out to patrol this, especially when the Glass Kat nightclub is open.
