“terrible intersection design at Georgia Ave and Park Rd NW”

“Dear PoPville,

Can we please discuss the terrible intersection design at Georgia Ave and Park Rd NW? The signage and signals make it so unclear what drivers should do and I witness daily road rage incidents because of it.

Are drivers supposed to come to a complete stop after turning onto Georgia Ave since they are immediately presented with a red light and you typically aren’t allowed to turn left across traffic on a red? Some drivers come to an immediate stop once they turn right onto Georgia Ave, which angers drivers behind them, and I’ve seen some of those angry drivers speed around the stopped cars

and almost cause a crash or hit pedestrians. Should there be signs warning drivers who want to continue on Park Rd to yield to any traffic turning left onto Georgia Ave?

There are signs on Park Rd on both the east and west sides of the intersection that say “BE PREPARED TO STOP AFTER TURNING RIGHT ONTO GEORGIA AVENUE” but clearly the language is confusing for drivers. Are drivers supposed to be prepared to stop because of the red stoplights or because they may have to yield to any traffic turning left?”
