crossed the entire width of the street, then it's like just like yellow light. >> reporter: drivers tell us they're glad cars are at least stopping now but say they prefer what they're used to. and more public education and more lights could be on the way. the city says that a regular traffic signal isn't needed at intersects like this one because people cross infrequently and they want to keep traffic moving. ian cole, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. we have new video into the newsroom of a fiery chain reaction crash on a southern california freeway on route 14, santa clarita. you see the motorcyclist kicking the side of a car ta cut him off. the driver of the car lost control and veered into the other lane and that caused the crash. as a result, one car flipped over. that's where he hits it. the driver in the car went to the hospital.
