A Dangerous Redesign

A redesigned intersection in New Haven worries one SeeClickFixer, who called the corner "incredibly dangerous, possibly deadly."

According to a SeeClickFix issue posted today, the traffic light at State and Grove in the northbound left turning lane is difficult to see: it was placed at eye-level as opposed to the standard overhead position. Drivers end up turning left on a red light, when looking up at the other traffic light and completely missing the eye-level light intended for them.

The fixer who posted the issue, Pedro Soto, staked out the site with his video camera and captured a car making this common but dangerous mistake. Pedro is "seriously concerned that unless a change is implemented soon, someone is going to lose their life," he wrote.

Check out the helpful video footage that Pedro posted of this possibly deadly corner:
