Hawthorne light stops cars without reason

I am writing about the traffic lights on Bridge Avenue.

The lights at Bridge Avenue and Hawthorne Street have not been working correctly for more than a year as they are turning when there are no cars waiting on Hawthorne. Also the lights do the same at Richway Drive and Bridge when there are no cars on Richway.

With the amount of traffic on Bridge and all the concern, it is very important these lights are working right as they are smart lights and should monitor traffic accordingly and only change as needed. I have contacted city officials and have had positive feedback, but they are still not right. Please contact the city if you notice lights not functioning correctly. Traffic flow on Bridge would be a lot better if this was fixed.
