A traffic light was recently installed at the cross-section of Gurnee Ave. and Rt. 202. The light is not universally approved of by locals and due to the angle causes both red and green lights to be seen simultaneously on at least two of three sides of the light.

This photo by local resident David VanderGoot displays well the potential for confusion as one approaches the light, especially if they are not accustomed to it.
