  1. Left turn signals don’t calm traffic, especially at minor intersections like Rose and Walgrove, they allow it to flow more freely (i.e. faster). They also make the lives of pedestrians just a little more miserable by forcing them to wait out the extra signal phase. This will probably just make this small residential street seem a bit more like a highway.

    It’s too bad, because Walgrove could use some real traffic calming and pedestrian improvements.

  2. Protected left turns greatly increase bicyclist safety since they decrease motorist anxiety of cutting across traffic. If you’ve ever biked down Venice and had a car wait for a gap in traffic only to cut in front of you (classic “left cross”), you know what I’m talking about.
