"I would say half the time I bike through Grand, Halsted, and Milwaukee, there is a semi truck blocking the bike lane on milwaukee to unload for the 7/11 at the corner. But seeing this really peeved me off.. Who the hell does this guy think he is?"

"One might ask why I'm not looking at the light at this intersection, it's because it is a one way west bound. I can think of no logical reason on why the timing for the east bound pedestrian has been reduced."

"Yes, intersection traffic timing can be a hidden danger in Chicago for all road users. Irregularities happen often enough IMO. It should be reported promptly. It may save a life."

Timing of eastbound pedestrian light at Randolph & Dearborn

Does anyone have any idea on why the pedestrian light going eastbound on Randolph at Dearborn now shows as red do not cross 5-10 seconds before the light turns red? It does not do this for the west bound pedestrian traffic. I gauge the pedestrian lights as to when the light will change and found myself in traffic assuming all of the cars were running the light. This is dangerous and if it hasn't happened already, I will bet that other cyclists do the same as me.
