This pedestrian crossing light turns green at the same time that traffic coming out of Waldeck is green. As a result, when you step into the street, cars coming out of Waldeck turn left and head straight for you. Suggest that the light out of Waldeck be red or right-only when the pedestrian crossing is green.
