That happens every day at the corner of James and Cannon and it's a wonder more people don't get hit. On the northeast corner the curb radius is large and I see many cars overshoot on the red light or just proceed with their right turns without stopping first.

On the opposite corner the stop line on James is stepped back to accommodate left turns from Cannon onto James. People don't always get it however, and several times a day a bus attempts to turn left but can't make the wide turn because someone overshot that stop line. The bus driver won't compromise on that left turn, so we are all treated to sustained honking as the car on James eventually backs up.

These problems would disappear if Cannon were to go to two way, these problems would disappear. If a bike lane and / or parking took the place of the active left lane, that would do about as much good.
