27Mar 2, 2010 1:42 PMI wish someone would come up with and initiate a novel idea of making the walk signals stay on long enough to get accross the street. And also to have turn arrows stay on when the traffic is busy. Not when there is no traffic. Get the message people, you dont need a turn arrow when there is not much traffic. One of the worst intersections for this is Bayfield and Coulter St.
