    The HAWK pedestrian signal added to this location confuses most drivers, who have no idea what to do when the lights change from solid red (stop) to alternate flashing red (which means drivers can proceed if no pedestrians are in crosswalk). Most drivers don't know they can proceed on flashing red (if there are no pedestrians in the crosswalk), so traffic remains blocked unnecessarily until the signal goes dark.

    How about posting the rules so people know what to do? Or at least a sign that says "Stop on flashing red, if no pedestrian, then proceed" or similar?
