The issue with this pedestrian crosswalk lighting is that even someone who walks very quickly as soon as the pedestrian walk sign starts, by the time they get halfway across Huntington, the countdown already starts, and drivers start to think they have the right of way and make a turn very Dangerously because they believe pedestrians are walking at the wrong time. I think the white walk sign least will be extended at least another 5 or 10 seconds. Because without it you have dangerous situation.
