YOUR TAKE: What do You Think of the Traffic Light at Speedy Chen's? [Poll]

Discussion about the light springs up on our Facebook page.

On Friday, Patty Kelley posted the following to our Facebook page:

While I realize the need for pedestrian safety, I feel the traffic light at speedy wongs on main street should be a "push button pedestrian light only", rather than a continuous cycling light. Does anyone else feel this way?

Her question stirred quite the discussion—getting a total of 10 "likes" and 11 comments by Sunday evening.

Darlene Smith called the light's functioning a "total nuisance." Carol Connors said that "half the drivers don't even stop [at the light] when it's red," but Michelle Lewis defended the light, saying that it makes it easier for drivers to take a left off of Dunstable Street and safer for kids to cross.

I love the light. Before it was installed,, I was sure that I was going to have an accident coming out of Sullivan St. The Main St. traffic is too fast and difficult to see.

Mitzy You best give up driving, what do you do on a highway? Or for that fact any other corner you come to!

This is Boston. If a pedestrian comes out on the road, they have the right of way.
