What's wrong?

No pedestrian crossing light, Alderney Drive and Portland Street.

Who's responsible?

Ken Reashor, god of traffic, 490-6637.

REMARKS

City policy has moved from forcing pedestrians to push a button to activate a crossing light, to not giving them a crossing light at all. This Dartmouth intersection, with a painted crosswalk but no light, is particularly tough for pedestrians, who have to predict several seemingly random traffic flows. Reashor and his staff didn't respond to repeated emails about it.
