on certain (not every) afternoon around 4:30, the light stays red at the intersection of audubon and state streets. cars on audubon start to back up all the way to whitney avenue. the red light has been timed to stay on about 12 minutes at a time, and when turns green, stays on for about 7 seconds after which it turns red. the honking and lines are incredible when this happens. it has once taken me 30 minutes to travel 1/2 block to get onto state street.
