The traffic is horrible on S.C. 544 at all times of the day, especially near Coastal Carolina University. On Thursdays and Fridays, the students want to cross over 544; they press the button on the traffic light and it immediately turns the light yellow. They don't come all at once, so by the time the light turns green again, someone else presses the button.
Sometimes you sit there for three light changes. Wouldn't it be safer and easier on traffic if there was a raised walkway over the road? The students could just walk over the road, avoiding accidents and traffic jams.
