Last time I checked, when a lane is marked as left turn only, cars and BUSES should only go left on from that lane. However, during peak traffic times I FREQUENTLY see cars and NH Transit Authority buses go straight across Chapel to avoid the long back up in the middle lane.
Three solutions (please choose at least ONE):
1) Allow both the left and middle lane to go straight across. This will allow more traffic to flow rather than making the middle lane really backed up.
2) TICKET those who do not turn LEFT.
3) Allow this light to last longer than 15 seconds. That seems extremely unreasonable. If you are not the 3rd or 4th car in the middle lane, then there is no way you are going through that light legally.
Let's promote SAFE driving by ALL (including buses).
