Walk...Don't Walk...Walk...Wait, what?


Mixed signals. Really, don't walk! A killer traffic light is on the loose stationary!

I managed to snap this off at Coal and Girard. Just when I was getting used to the directional changes on Lead, I see this traffic light. Perhaps it's a test for those who walk and talk on their cell phones?

Sweet! Yeah, you're totally safe in Albuquerque as a pedestrian. So, what is that car at the post waiting for - a personal invitation? : )

That's interesting, Debra.  I didn't think of it before, but perhaps they are both in cahoots!

Has this been brought up to the engineers/contractors in charge?

Hi All,

Contractor and Engineers were notified this morning. I'll report back when it has been addressed. Please don't hesitate to contact me via email mmotsko@cabq.gov when you see these kinds of things around town.

Thanks,

Mark

Is the crossing road signal (or any of the road signals) still green?  If not, I have seen a number of intersections recently where pedestrians are given a head start - as a safety enhancement.  All road signals are red, the pedestrian signal turns to "walk" and then several seconds later, the parallel road signal turns green.  I believe doing this avoids the situation where a car waiting to turn goes blasting around the corner just as someone is stepping off the curb.

The contractor just informed me this was addressed earlier today. Should be working correctly now.
