Issues: pedestrian light
Thanks! Thanked!51st Street And Telegraph Ave Oakland, CA
Vehicles heading East Bound on 51st Street, intending to turn left/North onto Telegraph Ave during the green arrow phase of the traffic light regularly advance into the intersection after the green arrow has turned red. Vehicles regularly block the "box" of the intersection, impeding the flow of West bound traffic on 51st Street. Worse, they block the cross-walk making it dangerous and difficult for pedestrians to cross Telegraph Avenue. Additionally, the white "safe to walk" symbol is not long enough with OUT the cars blocking the intersection. With vehicles regularly blocking the intersection, the "safe to walk" duration is insufficient. I can't RUN across Telegraph Ave before the red flashing don't walk symbol appears, and have even received dirty looks from OPD because I crossed on the don't walk red flash, simply because I had to wait til cars blocking the crosswalk moved through. Please address this - it's unsafe for pedestrians, and dangerous to drivers alike. It's been like this for years.
