Description

In general, east-west auto traffic in this part of the city is hampered by extreme north-south favoring light timings on all roads, harming locals to help commuters moving through the area to downtown. This intersection is a special problem because traffic entering the intersection from New Hampshire does not have a stop and cars, bikes, and pedestrians coming across on V St. are at great risk -- a tragic accident waiting to happen.

Fixing this intersection could provide a much needed east-west route for local traffic. Alternatively, fix light timings on 15th St., which are ridiculous. See Euclid and 15th St. especially, which is a very poorly timed light.
