This is on the south end of Dupont Circle right before you get to Connecticut Ave (and right after you start considering getting a Krispy Kreme). This signal has been out over a week. Some might think the 2nd signal behind it has the same time as the one that’s out. Not true. The 2nd signal could have 40 seconds on it and the first one is actually on “don’t walk.”

This is my walk to work, so I’m used to it. However, someone not really thinking might assume both are on walk and will get dinged by a car going around the circle. Even when the light is working I’ve seen too many near misses from cars zipping through the roundabout and not seeing the signal.

Ed. Note: I will also send to @DDOTDC
