The red arrow facing traffic on Lincoln Rd wanting to turn right into Whiteleigh Ave is on however the arrow never turns green. The arrow facing traffic on Lincoln Road wanting to turn right into Barrington Street does turn green. Because the flow on Lincoln Rd is heavy during peak times the right turning lane from Lincoln Rd to get into Whiteleigh Ave backs up and only allows for 2-3 cars to turn right into Whiteleigh per change (usually when the lights are turning from amber to red). This is creating huge frustration and leading to drivers making dangerous decisions to turn right into Whiteleigh because they a frustrated in having to wait anything from 5-15 mins. To make the intersection safer and allow for better flow it seems logical to have the green arrow activated to turn right into Whiteleigh Ave the same time the arrow turns green for those wanting to turn right into Barrington Street (both from Lincoln Rd)
