Description

Cars frequently run red lights while flying down North Frontage Road to make a lefthand turn onto Church Street (Southbound).

Unfortunately, vehicles and pedestrians waiting at the SE corner of N Frontage and Church can not see around the corner at all due to high vegetation and poor road geometry.

Even well after the light turns green for vehicles/people to continue along Church, they don't know if a car is flying down the left hand lane of Frontage and about to kill them.

Something needs to be done to improve this situation immediately before a pedestrian, driver or cyclist is killed.

In addition to the physical danger, this situation causes significant psychological stress as drivers need to pause and look for at least several seconds after the light turns green, before determining that it is safe to proceed.
