At this intersection, as at most, vehicles turning have to give way to pedestrians.
Given that, why have they designed it so that the green man appears several seconds after the cars start moving?
It was changed a few months ago when they modified the intersection.
It sends the wrong message. Surely, to improve safety and remind drivers of their obligations, it would be better to have both lights go green at once, or even have the green man go first.
Perhaps it’s only a little thing, but at a time when we should be encouraging more pedestrians, it’s indicative of the lack of thought going into managing our streets.
