Issues: road safety
101 Martine Street Fall River, MA - Fall River
As a Meditech employee it is crazy to me that there is no street lights on Martine Street. We have to park across the street when our lot is full and when some leave at night we are forced to cross Martine St. in the pitch black! Please consider putting a street light or 2 out there for our safety
Brennen Rd Columbia, SC - Columbia
We’ve been trying for the last three year’s to get three way stop sign’s or speed bump on brennen rd. The city did a 24 hour traffic count and there was 2,610 car’s went up the road & 2,405 down the road top speed 60 MPH The speed limit is 30MPH! We was told they would have to get approval from the highway dept. to do anything! We talk to the city and they’ll send a car to run radar they’ll set around for 10 to 20 minutes in the middle of the day when there’s not much going on! The big problem is between 6:00am to 9:30am & 2:30pm until! They’ve put speed bump’s down on all the side street’s around here that there’s probably not 10 car’s a day use’s!! There’s also signs on the ends of the road that say (thru trucks prohibited) but those big trucks cut thru anyway!! Thank You
Edgewood St. Hartford, CT - Upper Albany
This is the raceway to most people. There are a ton of children on this street and the speed drivers are the worst. I almost got ran over pulling into my driveway. The driver honked but never stopped or slowed down. We need a speed bump. Between Albany and Greenfield. For the children.
879-891 Oakwood Blvd Painesville, OH 44077, USA - US Congressional District OH14
Although It is great having a good time, childrens lives are always in danger with speeders, dirt bikes and 4-wheelers popping wheelies all weekend long. MANY speeders!
1026-1072 Asylum Ave Hartford, CT 06105, USA - Asylum Hill
Each day at the traffic light at the intersection of Asylum Ave and Woodland Street (headed away from downtown) drivers go straight on Asylum Ave. from the lane designated for a left turn onto Woodland Street. The cars "cut off" drivers in the proper lane, causing very unsafe driving conditions. Request for a traffic officer to be placed periodically at the intersection between 4:30 - 5:30 PM to deter this dangerous driving practice.
1122-1236 Ponus Ridge New Canaan, CT 06840, USA - New Canaan
New Canaan, CT. Speeding on Greenley road (1 mile long) and Ponus Ridge from Country School to 1400 block of Ponus Ridge continues to be a problem. Speed limit signs and hidden driveway signs are totally ignored. Too bad traffic monitors with cameras are illegal in CT. We would like to see increased police monitoring and ticketing for speeders. Only a matter of time before we experience a major accident, especially with winter weather on our doorstep. If you agree, please show support.
9 VotesFix it! Voted!N. Pollard St. And Wilson Blvd. Arlington, VA - Ballston-Virginia Square
There is high pedestrian traffic at this intersection, but no pedestrian safety measures. A stoplight with pedestrian signals would dramatically improve pedestrian safety at this intersection. At the very least, signs telling cars to stop for pedestrians would help. The intersection is also unsafe for drivers attempting to turn left from Pollard to Wilson, as the Wilson traffic is often speeding and the road curves there, harming visibility.

Last summer and this past winter, several "light the night" installations were made, increasing light on George St and Day St. The trees alongside the property on the corner of George and Day are blocking this light and keeping the sidewalk and property in the dark. There has been a recent string of incidents, including vandalism and theft and more lights are being installed. If the trees block the light, then their light goes to waste. Also, old branches are falling into the sidewalk during inclement weather and large branches are intertwining with the wires. These trees need to be trimmed to allow light to pass, and prevent a branch from falling or taking down a powerline.
Kings Road Madison, NJ - Madison
People use Kings Road to get away from the traffic lights on Main Street. But ever since the traffic light was installed at the corner of Samson and Kings, cars now speed up to make the light, or if driving westbound, fly down the hill. This is a residential area with children living on this street. I've already seen two pets killed in front of my house. How about a speed bump or two? Maybe when its a kid, maybe someone will sit up and take notice.
7830-7898 Riverside Dr Richmond, VA - Tuckahoe
Corner of Rockfalls and Riverside at 8000 block of Riverside Drive. Cars turning left or right from Rockfalls on Significant safety risk:
Cars at the stop sign at Riverside Drive and Rockfalls Drive cannot see traffic moving east (toward Williams Dam)
Drivers have to get into the east bound lane of Riverside and risk getting hit by cars traveling from 25-40 mph.
PLEASE have the owner of this lot mow that corner segment of his lot high enough up the hill that the view is not obstructed. This is an ongoing problem. The property should be mowed at that intersection regularly.
250 Peck St. New Haven, CT - Chatham Square
The intersection of Peck and Ferry is extremely dangerous for drivers and pedestrians. Cars parking in front of the liquor store on the northwest corner block the view for cars turning left from Peck onto Ferry, and the speeding on Ferry is out of control. With three intersections in a very short stretch of road, this would be an excellent place for a roundabout/traffic circle.

At Nash and Eagle there is no west-bound stop sign on Eagle St. Often, speeding cars cutting through the neighborhood accelerate through this intersection. With the new school being built, it's about time to put in a traffic calming stop sign.
5456 State Highway 365 Verona, NY 13478, USA - NY State Senate District 47
Traffic on 365 are moving at 55-70 miles an hour. 95% of the time a person needs to cross the warning rumble strips to turn safely. Traffic behind does not give you space. NEED right hand turn lanes at all corners on 365. Crossing the rumbles strips is Illegal as it has solid white lines as well.
1-199 Preston St Fall River, MA - Fall River
Either a stop sign is needed or police need to enforce speeding over here. There are a lot of kids in this neighborhood and some of the teens with their cars like to Use Newhall as a drag strip you can drive down it and see the parts where they do burn outs. Please install a stop sign or enforce and suspend some licenses.
1504 Grafton Ct Virginia Beach, VA - Virginia Beach city
light goes out and comes back on all night long. With the time change approaching, we will have more hours of darkness which presents a safety issue for the residents on the court.
12900 Steveston Hwy Richmond, BC - Richmond
This rinky @#$% bridge is a disaster in the making every single day. From being a single lane bridge in an area that feeds from two different highways to having a red light right after the hump, meaning speeding drivers regularly hit the brakes hard, this bridge makes an already jammed area all the more clogged. Time for an upgrade.
206 Roydon Rd New Haven, CT - Beaver Hills
Tree roots have pushed sidewalk apart to the point where it has become a safety concern. After almost 8 months of reporting this issue and calling the department of public works, absolutely nothing has been done to resolve this issue. In fact the department of public works wont even return a phone call. What exactly is the point of paying property taxes to a city that does not use that revenue to actually fix problems residents have with not only city property, but private property as well
10 VotesFix it! Voted!2500 S Adams Rd Rochester Hills, MI 48309, USA - Rochester Hills
In times of higher traffic volumes, it can be almost impossible and/or dangerous to enter the westbound M59 entrance ramp from the northbound Adams road left turn lane (turn around). Either southbound traffic on Adams is coming at speed, or vehicles turning south on Adams from eastbound Hamlin (many from westbound M59 exit) constantly block access to Adams or to cross Adams to use the entrance ramp. This intersection either needs a traffic light or there should be 'No Turn On Red' for eastbound Hamlin Rd. traffic that wants to go southbound on Adams Rd. In times of poor weather, the delayed traffic attempting to get to the M59 entrance ramp also backs up on northbound Adams Rd causing an additional safety issue.
1 VoteFix it! Voted!Ramp Merge For Rte 80 East Saddle Brook, NJ 07663, USA - Saddle Brook
As of June 6. 2013, the bushes have grown back and the view to check oncoming traffic from the Garden State Parkway is blocked. There is still no sign warning drivers coming off the Parkway that there is a
HIDDEN AND HEAVY MERGE on the right side as they follow ramp to Route 80 East.
As of October 1, 2012, there is still NO SIGN for drivers exiting Garden State Parkway at Exit 159 telling them that there is a heavy merge on right which is HIDDEN BY TRESS AND BUSHES WHICH GET CUT DOWN AND THEN GROW AGAIN.
My neck is sore from twisting it to see if any cars are coming off the
Parkway on ramp to Exit 80 East BEFORE I can merge onto that
Please drive this merge yourself from Saddle Brook and see how your neck feels.
Thank you, Anita Nedswick
Drivers speeding off Garden State Parkway at Exit 159 have
NO SIGN of HEAVY MERGE
on right ( from Saddle Brook)
Cars have no speed strips, ramp curves, bushes and trees
hide cars approaching on right
I have been tapped in rear of my car twice trying to merge from Midland Ave in Saddle Brook with cars speeding off
GSP at Exit 159. Have to stop
twice.....once at actual sign and
then STOP AGAIN in a few feet
so you can turn around 180 degrees to see cars speeding out of Toll Booths at Exit 159.
Blue Route Springfield, PA 19064, USA - Havertown
There is a "truck lane" that opens up on the blue route near Springfield. The lane then ends, causing cars to merge, about a mile after it starts. People familiar with this area are aware, but those who are not are "surprised" at the abrupt ending of this lane and are forced to dangerously merge, especially if it is a tractor trailor. It does not make any sense. Not sure what could be done about it but it is confusing and dangerous as cars/trucks are forced to merge and are usually speeding to do so.
I-74 Eastbound Overpasses Morton, IL - Morton
Overpasses needs patches replaced with smooth surface to drive on. The current issue is a safety concern as someone can loose control of their vehicle as they traverse this section of highway.
2308-2372 Holland Rd Virginia Beach, VA - Virginia Beach city
There are no sidewalks or safe places for pedestrians to walk nor bicyclists to ride from the intersection of Justice Walk Lane to the new Nimmo Parkway extension. The roadway is crumbling at the shoulders into a ditch on the eastern side, and a ditch and cemetary on the western side. To travel this section of road any way but by car is to take one's life into his own hands! When the new section of Nimmo is complete we would love to ride bikes to the library and recreation center, but this will be impossible with the current state of Holland Road right outside of the neighborhood entrance.
Juniata Rd Jeffersonville, PA - West Norriton
I recently moved to Juniata Rd and it's crazy how fast people speed down this road. Every night I see a lot of children playing outside, one of them is going to get hurt, chasing after a run-a-way ball.
How about putting a "Slow Children at Play" sign up? This will not stop speeders but maybe it will catch one persons attention.
