“at what point does DDOT figure out that the signal and/or pole should be re-positioned to avoid getting hit?”

“Dear PoPville,

The attached image is the northwest corner of 16th and Newton Streets NW. It seems like every few weeks a truck cuts the turn from southbound 16th to westbound Newton too close and hits the traffic signal on the left, with the red light, turning it to face the wrong direction. I’ve reported it to 311 multiple times and the signal is usually turned back around within 48 hours, only to be hit again not long after. It’s been turned back around the right direction but I’m sure it will get twisted again soon. I’m wondering at what point does DDOT figure out that the signal and/or pole should be re-positioned to avoid getting hit? “
