Among the many problems is one that seems common in Montgomery County: exceptionally long light cycles. If you just miss a light as a pedestrian or a motorist, you're looking at waiting 2+ minutes at many intersections, all of increases the chance of speeding and frustration. This is even worse when green cycles are not long enough to clear traffic queues (especially for turn lanes), so you have to sit still for 2+ minutes before moving at all.

In addition to just long cycles, many many Montgomery County intersections have too many movements. Often a protected left, then green ball, then protected left the other way for both cross streets.
