Have you noticed a traffic-related problem? If so, please tell us! If the concern is with a traffic signal, it is very helpful if you can specify the location, which direction you were traveling, whether it involves the pole (vertical) or mastarm (horizontal) signal, approximately what time you noticed the problem, along with a brief explanation of the problem you experienced.
