Traffic Signal

Current setting creates a safety hazard to pedestrians, if a walker presses the beg button as the light is changing or arrives even a second too "late", the pedestrian light won't activate, and won't give people enough time to cross safely. No one waits the full cycle because the wait is usually excessive. Pedestrian light should be set to activate with every green to cross Washington. Most of the traffic that crosses Washington St here does so on foot, so they should be the main consideration
