Falcon / Broadway - Malfunctioning and Short Traffic Light

Location:: Intersection of Falcon/Broadway
District:2nd District

Traffic sensing loops on Falcon crossing Broadway are inconsistent and the time given to cross the street is too short.

Loops may or may not detect a cyclist, forcing cyclists to dismount, cross traffic and activate ped. button, which may or may not trigger crossing signal.

When the loop does detect a cyclist, the signal is TOO SHORT. By too short, I mean 4 SECONDS to get on your pedals, negotiate the hump and potholes on the road, cross the street and negotiate the cracks and potholes on the other side.
