Dangerous timings for crossing

Every day I walk the children to and from St Nicolas School. We cross the lights at the Vine Yard and go up The Motte. There is not a week that goes by where someone doesn't run the lights coming up from The Vines (turning right). The green man comes up and the cars are still coming across the crossing. Everyone knows the dangers and no one crosses until all cars have passed. Some one is going to get hit here soon. The red light needs to be on longer coming up from The Vines to ensure all cars have crossed before the green man signals. Or cameras need to be installed to catch people who run the red light. The issue with people running the light is that they are going fast so the risk of someone being hit is high. I hope this is a quick fix by changing the timings to potentially save a child's life.
