Traffic Lights don't change to let pedestrians cross. Playing chicken with traffic instead.

For some reason, for most of the day the traffic lights outside Sainsbury's on Blackboy Hill don't change unless you wait or a very long time. As a result, many people play 'chicken' with the traffic, crossing half-way when there's a gap then rushing across the other half of the road.

I think after pressing the button, a maximum of 15-20 seconds would be appropriate.
