“Dear PoPville,

I walk through Washington Circle every day to and from work, and the crosswalk there is a disaster waiting to happen. If you watch the video, you’ll see that the pedestrian signal tells people to cross WHILE the traffic light is still green. I’ve seen a lot of pedestrians stepping into oncoming traffic because they (naturally) assume that cars will be stopping. Do you know who to contact about fixing this?”
