Install more advance green lights at intersections, and restrict left turns to advance green cycles
Install more advance green lights at intersections, and restrict left turns to advance green cycles. Currently on many arterial roads throughout the city the only opportunity to turn left is on the yellow light. This creates dangerous situations as many vehicles try to "race" the yellow lights and thus conflict with left turning traffic. It is very common to see both near misses and accidents caused by this conflict. By shifting left turning traffic to advance greens this conflict would be greatly reduced resulting in decreased congestion as well as improved road safety.
