Default SE 22nd and Sandy

Whoops - that's NE.

At the Glisan "Bike Crossing" light! Motorist on Glisan, waiting for light to turn so she can turn onto Sandy sees that the traffic on Sandy has stopped and apparently decides that it is her turn even though if she bothered to look at her signal she would have noticed that it was still RED because the Bike Crossing signal was green - she almost took out three of us.

Sandy Blvd has the most dangerous crossings in the NE part of Portland- I always stay alert when crossing it as I have had a bunch of close calls with people turning on or of Sandy - mostly around 21 and 32nd, but I know the intersection you are talking about as well.

Its as though some drivers cant handle other than perpandicular angles.
