  • 470-478 Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - Journal Square
    Very dangerous crossing Newark Ave and Waldo Ave, especially during rush hour. Oftentimes, when waiting to cross, cars speed along Newark Ave with complete disregard for the neon yellow Pedestrian Crosswalk sign. Equally dangerous are cars turning right onto Newark from Waldo - the other I was crossing from the north side of Newark towards Waldo when a car traveling down Newark towards downtown stopped to let me cross BUT another car on Waldo turning right on Newark did not see me and started springing forward. I was pushing an infant in a stroller and had to stop real quick. Even the car that had stopped for me was honking its horn. This cross-walk is really dangerous for pedestrians, and I think there needs to be a traffic signal added because the drivers really have zero regard for any crosswalk signage.

    there is a four-way stop on St. Pauls and Liberty Ave. but cars are constantly running through it; potentially hazardous
  • 145 Sussex St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    I live near the corner of Van Vorst and Sussex and frequently drive down Van Vorst. There is currently parking on both side of the street and two-way traffic. There simply isn’t room for 4 cars on Van Vorst. Cars frequently cannot turn onto the street and are forced to back up into traffic, and visibility turning onto the street is very difficult and last night I witnessed a fender bender as a result. The street can support only three cars, so either it should be turned into a one-way street or parking eliminated from one side.

  • 333 Grand St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    With the recent explosion of traffic on Jersey Ave due to the direct link to Liberty State Park, the intersection at Jersey Av and Grand St has turned into a nightmare. There need to be dedicated green lights for turning left as well as dedicated safe crossing time for pedestrians instead of having to negotiate with frustrated drivers turning left. Big safety issue and very disappointing that the city did not address this before opening the floodgates.
  • 615 Pavonia Ave Jersey City, NJ 07306, USA - Journal Square
    Journal SquareD allows moving trucks, delivery trucks, and even residents' cars to block the sidewalk and crosswalk constantly. It is a safety hazard making it impossible to cross the street with a clear line of sight towards oncoming traffic. This has been going on for YEARS, however the attached photos are some of the most egregious behavior I have witnessed. They're allowing moving vans to completely block the sidewalk instead of having the vans INSIDE the building's loading zone where they are supposed to be. Furthermore, residents block Pavonia with their vehicles to drop off groceries or to pick something up from their apartments. They just turn on the hazard light blinkers and take a leisurely stroll to their unit for whatever reason. Plenty of Uber cars idle outside and the delivery vans never venture to the interior of the loadinv zone. They are constantly on the sidewalk either doing some dangerous maneuver or sitting, blocking pedestrians' pathway.  This is not a rare occurrence by any means. Please fine Journal Squared and instruct them not to block PAVONIA AVE, the CROSSWALK, or the SIDEWALK. I usually try to avoid that side of the street altogether but the ongoing construction on Homestead place forces people to cross towards Journal SquareD side and it is not safe. Also, I want to mention that vehicles exit the Journal SquareD garage/loading zone at unsafe speeds to get onto Pavonia very often. Overall, it is a nightmare for pedestrians.
  • Christopher Columbus Dr & Marin Blvd Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    Longer green light for cars to turn from Christopher to Marin Blvd. Adjust street so less congestion.

  • 145 Nelson Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The Heights

    I am asking for Stop Signs on Nelson Avenue at Locations of Hague Street, Leonard, Graham, and others to improve street crosswalk for pedestrians. It's a safety hazard for people to cross on Nelson Avenue at Leonard Street, Graham, and others due to cars driving by. Pedestrians usually have to wait a long time before they can cross and it's still a safety issue.

    Maybe Stop Signs are needed at these crosswalk locations on Nelson Avenue. Also keep in mind that Public School 27 is few blocks away so having these Stop Signs on Nelson will help crosswalk safety for pedestrians for all people especially school children. The City Inspector needs to determine whether STOP Signs are needed at the locations, Speed Humps, or traffic lights. Thank you!

    Grand St & Washington St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - The Waterfront
    My children are bussed from PS 16 to Danforth. I am becoming increasingly concerned with the lack of a safe area for the numerous buses to pull over on Grand and Washington. Every morning and afternoon the buses gridlock the street, and create major traffic because there is not adequate parking for the 6 plus buses that are needed to facilitate getting these spillover children to their Danforth school. Children are forced to walk into the street to get to their double parked buses- it's an accident waiting to happen. How do we go about removing residential street parking on Washington Street from Grand to Sussex to help with this issue? If you stop allowing residents to park on Washington in front os PS 16, it will greatly expedite the bus situation and make things MUCH safer for pedestrians and drivers in that area.
