Drivers apparently running red light

The in basket: Don Merry writes, “Every morning I travel on Randall Way and then turn north on Silverdale Way about 8:30 a.m. to get to the post office. I have been doing this for a few years now but recently I have had to wait after the light turns green for a few seconds to let southbound traffic go through the intersection. At first, I thought they were running the light but now I wonder if there is a problem with the signal timing. Could you find out? If nearly every morning traffic runs this light, I want drivers to know it’s dangerous for them to do that.

The out basket: Doug Bear of Kitsap County Public Works replies, “We monitored the signal at 8:30 a.m. and also at 4:00 p.m.
and found the signal to be operating normally. Our signal technician thinks that what (Don) is observing is folks running the red light.”
