    I think extending the yellow is a good thing. There are lots of intersections — all along Market — where I can enter on a stale green and not make it to the crosswalk before the “Walk” signal comes on. If yellows are timed to the Speed Limit, it leaves us slower bike riders in a really awkward situation: cut off pedestrians who have the “walk” line — or stop in the middle of the intersection.

    Even nicer would be to have a slight extension and early start w/ bike signal lights!

    Maybe if there was a way to cross market at 11th, I wouldn’t haven’t to.
