Hi. The traffic light at the corner of Gilbert Street and Church Street South needs to be timed better. When you are on Gilbert going towards Church St. South, you have less than 10 seconds to make the turn (I have counted, numerous times), and the traffic on Church St. South has at least 2 minutes to go. This does not include the time needed for the pedestrians as needed. It is especially bad during evening rush hour when you have a line of cars stretching almost to Cedar Street, most cominig out of the Amistad garage. I usually have to sit in line for 4-5 light changes to make the right hand turn. And that is if people make the illegal right on red or run the yellow light out of frustration. I also witnessed a jeep pull onto the sidewalk and drive the sidewalk to the intersection, and then make a right hand turn.
