    Why are cars given priority at the traffic lights at the Empress roundabout? I walk across the Stray into town and I regularly have to wait 30 seconds for a red light. That’s a frustrating time to wait (often in the wind, rain, wet), when I have been striding out (healthily) across the Stray. Stop! Ah, make way for the car! So, on I go with my journey, to the next traffic light crossing. Ah yes, that’s the Conservative HQ. Not long to wait there.

      I agree and I think in Harrogate generally people on foot are asked to wait too long at pedestrian crossings. There’s no reason why lights shouldn’t change straight away for pedestrians (unless someone has just crossed).

    I walked into town today, stood at Empress roundabout at the lights. I waited on this exposed corner, for 30 seconds, in the wind and sleet with cars spraying me with water. Another reason why these lights should be pedestrian focussed. I continued my walk into town and crossing a road coming from the left, was abused by a driver coming towards me, who wanted to turn right. Despite my having the right of way, I got two-fingered abuse.
