No need for grand plans, just park a police officer very visibly at that intersection during commute hours. Take them off stopping people for rolling through stop signs or whatever. El Camino/Grant intersection is simply nuts during commute hours, and every left turn has several red light runners.

The right turn on red is dangerous too, since drivers will be paying attention to a gap in traffic and might miss pedestrians.
