@JanS – the red light is the signal next to the green one. You can’t see the red because of the angle but it’s red. I see this every day too and there’s going to be a nasty t-bone here at some point. It’s a loooong intersection making it more complicated for today’s distracted drivers to notice there’s even a signal. I too have called SDOT with the same response as the OP.

I have had Brad from Expert Electric out for a small job but could tell he has depth for any job. He was awesome.
However, I now see on his Website that he only schedules one knob and tube remediation per year.
Seeing some of the prices listed in this thread, I think I’ll pass and hope the knob and tube in my attic lasts another 15 years. Wow, quite a lot of money to get it removed!
Del, I can take you to the Counsel and I promise to keep you safe from crime. I can drive you most any Tuesday or Thursday and every other Friday but not this one. Send me a message here. You can help pay for gas.April 24, 2015 at 10:06 pm in reply to: Recommenadations on Allergy Dr's md or Natrupath Please! #823722
The change to the timing is fairly recent, but at least a month if not a bit longer. They changed the timing at Avalon and Fauntleroy Way SW as well, turning left on to Fauntleroy Way from Avalon (Starbucks on your right, Cleaners in front of you). Only 4 cars get through before turning yellow. I am guilty of running the yellow/red at both of these intersections since the change. It’s simply too short.
I have written SDOT 3 times about this intersection, the timing of lights, and the “box blockers” heading toward the bridge preventing left turns from Oregon. Here is their latest reply. They sampled the traffic ONE MORNING ONLY.
Thank you for writing to the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) regarding Fauntleroy Way Southwest and Southwest Oregon Street. We apologize for the delay in responding to you.
We did a site visit on 2/11/2015. We watched the intersection from 7:13 AM to 8:45 AM. Vehicles on northbound Fauntleroy Way Southwest stopped at the south crosswalk when they had the red light. Vehicles on eastbound Southwest Oregon Street were able to turn northbound onto Fauntleroy Way Southwest without any vehicles blocking the intersection. The only time Southwest Oregon Street vehicles had any interference from northbound Fauntleroy Way Southwest traffic was when a Metro bus was picking passengers up on the southeast corner of Fauntleroy Way Southwest, and even then the intersection cleared immediately and Southwest Oregon Street traffic was not bottled up.
When we review requests such as yours, we review data that may include, but not limited to, speed limits, traffic volumes, reported collision history, road width and visibility. This information is used to make decisions on whether or not new or additional engineering enhancements should be considered. We evaluated this location, including a review of the safety history, and the data suggests the section of roadway is operating as planned for ordinary travel. After our review, we regret that it is not a high priority to make further engineering modifications at Fauntleroy Way Southwest and Southwest Oregon Street.
SDOT wants our street system to operate safely and efficiently for all users. Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. If you have any other questions or would like to talk further about this review, please feel free to contact William Burns directly at email@example.com or (206) 684-5114. Mr. Burns will be happy to speak with you further.

Brad from Expert Electric is the best. He came out, promptly diagnosed my issue, provided advice on several other potential issues, and fixed the main problem for a most excellent price. I cant recommend him enough. Thorough and professional! His number has a permanent place in my phone.
Some detail of the kayak might be of value.
Where did you find it?
Manufacturer or Brand of the boat?
What color is it?

There’s soooo few buses (and fewer if this passes), it’s just these wide-open lanes 80% of the day. Put cars in ’em! Maybe structure the hours of use and enforce that? Bus Lane only during peak hours would be awesome.
One of his victims today didn’t pull far enough out of the bus lane thus creating a blockage while Cool Shades wrote his ticket. Mr. Shades didn’t even tell the guy to pull forward SO BUSES COULD GET BY.
1. Pretty certain 100% of your property tax is deductible.
2. You may deduct the portion of vehicle registration in the “RTA” field.
