This intersection is the site of near misses everyday as people on Malin Road try to negotiate turns. There is no visibility onto Bryn Mawr Avenue and because of the offset of the hills, the sections of Malin Road do not line up. It results in a free for all of turning methods. This morning (2/15), in one cycle of the light, there were almost 3 accidents due to the issues of cars turning.
The light needs to be changed to allow each side of Malin Rd to move separately.
There was a speed hump put in about 40 feet from the Stop sign at Malin and Barren Roads. Malin Road is a highly traveled secondary artery which acts as a border between Newtown and Radnor townships and extends into Broomall. It inconveniences law abiding citizens who follow the posted 25 MPH speed limit. I have witnessed vehicles drive over the hump going no more than 20 mph and damage was caused to the undersides of those vehicles. Heighten a police presence in the area and ticket speeders but don't inconvenience hard working tax payers with unwanted speed humps!
If you are travelling west on Haverford Ave and want to make a left turn onto Bryn Mawr Ave at the Wawa it is very dangerous because the opposing traffic has a green light that is extended by a few seconds with no sign indicating this. So because there is no left turn arrow you generally inch out into the intersection and wait for the light to turn yellow / red, and then start to make your turn, without knowing that the opposing light has stayed green for a few extra seconds meaning that opposing cars keep barrelling through the interesection as your light is turning red.
For some reason the east and west-bound left turn arrow lights are not lined up, so that if you are going west on Lancaster you get the light first, but going East there's no arrow until the end of the cycle. This is very dangerous because if someone is going west and trying to turn on the yellow (after the arrow has ended) they'll end up stuck in the intersection while oncoming traffic continues. I cannot fathom why the green arrows are not in sync.
as you travel west on haverford rd and go to make a left onto bryn mawr ave there should really be a left turn arrow and jump at this light. there have been too many accidents here over the years that could have been prevented by this fix.
