Issues: street signal
Flutie Pass - Framingham
The traffic lights heading east on Flutie Pass seem to be timed incorrectly. If you are traveling from the north or east the lights stay on for a reasonable period, however, if you are traveling from the west and heading east toward the Natick Mall, the traffic lights stay on for a very short period creating a hazzard
Corner Of Swarthmore Ave And Chester Pike Ridley Park, PA - Ridley Park
When sitting at the light to cross over Chester Pike on Swarthmore Ave, the red light takes forever. Sometimes to the point of thinking its broken. Please fix.
57 Hurlbut St Albany, NY - Delaware Avenue
Traffic light turns red even though there are no cars on side street and no pedestrians and school is not in session.
Waste of time and fuel waiting at light for non-existent vehicles on side street.
Fix the timing on this @#$% light. Make it a trip light or a smart light. Actually, the light isn't needed at all. The street is one way. So, vehicles on side street stop then turn right when no traffic is coming. Not a high traffic volume area. Why is there a light to begin with?
Intersection Of Central Ave And Everett Rd Albany, NY - Upper Washington Avenue
Cars turning LEFT onto Everett Rd from Central Ave repeatedly run the red lights, sometimes 4 or 5 cars in a row. This is due to bad design, it is really hard to turn onto Everett from Central. It is also almost impossible for pedestrian traffic to cross Everett Rd at this intersection, as their green lights are entirely taken up by people turning left or right onto Everett.
Suny At Albany Albany, NY - Campus Area-University District
The traffic lights on Washington Ave. eastbound at the easternmost exit from the UAlbany campus are misaligned. Both are directed to the right of the access road. It is probably not possible to move the poles on which the lights are mounted, but it should be possible to rotate the lights facing the access road from position A as shown on the attached map to position B so that they actually are directed at the exiting lane of traffic. The lights are still somewhat visible in their current orientation, but this small change would make them much more so.
428-472 Broadway Albany, NY 12207, USA - Albany
This traffic light and intersection does not allow right-on-red for vehicles waiting to turn from Broadway (heading south) even when vehicles are making State St unavailable to pedestrians. This tends to unnecessarily delay and backup traffic.
6 Delaware Ave Albany, NY 12210, USA - Albany
ever since the new traffic lights have been installed traffic get backed up in both directions of madison north and south of lark st intersection. Lark street east and west have a green light for much longer than it used to be with the old lights

With the addition of all the new parking garages for AMC, the new traffic lights on Holland Avenue, and all the traffic that leaves the vicinity at 4:30 every day, there have been backups from Delaware Avenue through New Scotland Avenue (and further) on both sides of the road due to congestion. Often the traffic lights (such as the one in front of the VA) allow people from the VA and from the Albany Law parking lot to enter onto Holland, but not enough time for those on Holland to continue on their journey. Hackett backs up as well, as people use Clara Barton Road to try to bypass the traffic. It seems when they did the new intersection at Delaware and Morton, they should have added a third lane for right-turn only onto Delaware to help with the traffic.
Old State Rd At New Karner Rd Colonie, NY - Albany
I frequently drive through this intersection at night on Route 155.
The traffic light turns RED for the cars on Route 155, but is GREEN when there are no vehicles exiting from Old State Rd. or the business driveway on the east side.
This light needs to be green so cars are not stopping when they do not need to.
Intersection Of New Scotland Ave And South Lake Avenue albany , ny - Pine Hills
the timing of the traffic light at the intersection of new scotland avenue and south lake avenue needs to be adjusted so the southbound light on new scotland ave turns red before the north bound light. Inevitably what occurs is 3 to 4 cars are in the intersection when the light turns red and those cars approaching New Scotland from South Lake have to wait at a green light while the cars in the intersection travel to their destination whether it be continuing northeast on new scotland or turning left onto South Lake. I suspect that there have been no accidents at this spot but regardless it serves as both an inconvenience and potential accident site because the northbound light does not turn red first.
36 Eagle St Albany, NY 12207, USA - Albany
More than once, the traffic light at State and eagle turns green to turn right onto Eagle and there's traffic continuing to drive through intersection. The red signal is already 2 1/2 minutes with a short timed green and no turn on red. Stop the traffic on upper State before the light or allow turn on red at this intersection.
117 S Allen St. Albany, NY 12208 - Pine Hills
I have a question about the intersection of Western Ave., Madison Ave., and Allen St. in Albany.
Cars traveling north on Allen St, attempting to turn left onto Western, and cars traveling south on Allen St., attempting left turns onto Western and Madison sit in the short intersection, unable to turn, and also blocking traffic going straight through the intersection in either direction on Allen St.
When the traffic light changes, allowing east/west traffic, the only way to clear the intersection is for the cars stalled there to proceed against the signal. At times of heavy traffic, this causes a major tie-up.
Is there nothing that can be done to make traffic flow more smoothly through this intersection?
I don't know how many accidents are reported there, but I have witnessed many close calls.
Intersection Of Central Avenue--Cross Streets: Van Heusen St. & Waterman Avenue - Albany County
The light on Central Avenue should be defaulting to GREEN at 5am, instead it changes to red when no one trips the light on either cross street (Van Heusen Street, other side is Waterman Avenue)...there is nobody there to trip the light. Should be a continuous green on Central Avenue ... please check this out! Thank You

Corner Of New Scotland Ave & W Erie St Albany, NY 12203, USA - Buckingham Lake-Crestwood
now that St Theresa's school & the Church are closed, is it really necessary to have the traffic light on all the time at the corner of New Scotland Ave & W Erie? as long as there is no school in session for New Scotland Elementary, can't we get this light to be a blinking traffic light all the time or only have it working during school day hours?
1320 W 2nd St McMinnville, OR 97128, USA - McMinnville
We need a traffic light right here, programmed to come on for the morning rush and the evening rush. There is a cross-walk to the school on the other side of Fleishauer at 2nd, and the school traffic in the morning makes it impossible for people to get out onto 2nd from Fleishauer. It's a huge back up.
S Pearl St Albany, NY - Albany
A recent Times Union article stated that one of the reasons why this traffic light is still here (even though the side road connecting to South Pearl St. is currently unused) is to aid pedestrians in the area.
I have never seen any pedestrians crossing South Pearl St. at this location! And furthermore, if they are so worried about pedestrians, then why don't they install a proper crosswalk and crossing signals there?
I think their reason is hogwash!
This traffic light needs to be REMOVED AT ONCE, because all it does is aggravates backups (usually caused by the hundreds of slow-moving tractor-trailer trucks hogging up the road), and it serves NO PURPOSE!!!
The entrance to the Doane School is NOT USED ANYMORE!!!
GET RID OF THIS TRAFFIC LIGHT!!
17650 Meinig Ave Sandy, OR - Sandy
The traffic light never changes to green for the traffic traveling from 211 through to Proctor Blvd. I have waited for more than 10 minutes for the light to change, watching others go around me to the right and then turning into the Goodwill parking lot to get through to west bound Proctor Blvd. As of this morning (1/26/12) at 6:15 the traffic light seems to be working correctly. Thank you.
221-291 Madison Ave Albany, NY 12202, USA - Albany
The traffic light for the pedestrian crosswalk should change on a timer in the middle of the night. Wouldn't it be more efficient to have it change only when someone pushes the button to cross after say, 8:00?

Godfrey Blvd Bangor, ME - Bangor
When heading south on Godfrey Boulevard, there is a traffic light at the intersection with Griffin Road. When the light turns green for traffic continuing south, the light remains red for traffic going north. That's all good. But there is no left-turn arrow that lets traffic heading south and turning left onto Maine Avenue know that this is a "leading" turn.
2325 Broadway Fort Wayne, IN - Creighton Home
Drivers have been detouring down the alley behind our house to avoid the traffic light at Creighton & Broadway. They try to beat the people at traffic on Broadway before it reaches Scott Ave.. Needless to say they reach speeds 35 or 40 mph. They are going to hit one us backing out or worse run over one of us.
45 Clayton Pl Albany, NY 12209, USA - Delaware Avenue
Children from Myers Middle School cross Hackett here, often dodging speeding cars and inattentive drivers. Move traffic light from Ramsey Place to Clayton Place and install pedestrian control so children can cross Hackett safely.
11752-11782 Clinton River Rd Sterling Heights, MI 48313, USA - Sterling Heights
Need a Traffic Light at Henry Ford High II. For the safety of students some one should install a traffic light at this location before a major accident.
Heisley Road And Dimond Centre Mentor, Ohio 44060 - Mentor
My beef with this light is that it makes it take forever just to get through off Heisley Road onto Dimond Centre. You can only turn on green arrow. However that arrow only stays green for mabye 30 seconds. So if there is a long line of cars which usually is, it turns back to red and then you wait at least 5 minutes. And its not good sitting at all these lights in 90 degree heat. Its a wonder nobody's car overheated at that joke of an intersection. To the city of Mentor. Fix that light.

The light in front of Sand Creek MS is like a tax on our time and gas - this light is on when school is not in session, even on weekends. Why can't this be a yellow flasher most of the day and all weekend/summer?
Pleasant St Bridgewater, MA - US Congressional District MA9
While at a red traffic light just after the car wash my car was rear ended and pushed into another by someone admittedly looking at her cell phone resulting in my son and I sustaining injuries and my car being totaled.

The entire Northern Boulevard/NY Route 377/US Route 9 corridor should be called:
"The Intersection that Time Forgot".
Absolutely NOTHING has been repaired at this intersection since the late 1950's - early 1960's when this whole intersection was built!
(Oh yeah, I forgot-- they just recently put in a new traffic light at Northern Blvd. and NY 377)... Wheeee!!!
WOW! One improvement in 50 years!
But the pavement is crumbling, the road surface is buckling, potholes are big enough to break your tire right off of your car, many of the street lights are not functioning, the overpass abutments are disintegrating, and the amount of weeds and overgrowth of dead trees in this area is STAGGERING!!!
Route 378 down the street was just recently repaired wonderfully... Can't the same be done to Route 377 as well??!?!
You'd think with all the influential politicians and wealthy socialites who go to the Wolfert's Roost up the street, that they would at least attempt to clean up this section in order to gain favor with their constituency!!
4775 E Harmony Rd Fort Collins, CO 80525, USA - Timnath
when your going north bound on Weitzel rd. at Harmony rd. the traffic light will not change for you, to go onto to Harmony, or across to wal-mart.
134-142 New York 32 Menands, NY 12204, USA - Menands
Better signage notifying "Right Lane Ends" is needed. Currently sign is up the road a bit and hidden behind a tree. Sign should be either at stop light or directional arrows should be painted on the road. Dangerous condition when people come up on the right side not knowing that the lane is ending, and try to pass/cut in.
