  • Baldwin Ave & Fleet St Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - The Heights
    Drivers consistently park their vehicles too close to the crosswalk at Fleet St and Baldwin. Please install curb extensions to prevent this behavior and enhance pedestrian safety.
  • Magnolia Ave & Tonnelle Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - Journal Square
    there needs to be some sort of pedestrian precautions on this corner cars speed through here and when you try to cross they yell and curse you out this area is horrid
  • Ferry St & Palisade Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The Heights
    Even with the pedestrian signs drivers do not slow down. When you cross the street that yell at pedestrians like we are in the wrong crossing when we have the right away and it is state law. Also, very often someone is parking on the crosswalk right in from of Lofi making it unsafe to cross. Please but protectors on the crosswalk and also put a pedestrian sign in the middle of the road too so slow down motorists and let pedestrians go.
  • 671 Palisade Ave Union City 07307, United States - The Heights
    Based on today’s death but also on general experience please study the safety of pedestrian crossings on this street
  • Grace St & 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!

  • 2nd St & Erie St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    Please consider adding a stop sign on Erie Street at 2nd Street, along with daylighting on Erie street at this intersection. Each stop along Erie from 1st to 12th street is controlled either via stop sign or traffic light, except for this intersection. Drivers will occasionally come to a stop while traveling along Erie street at this intersection as it is due to extremely limited visibility. Visibility is limited by cars parking on the eastern and western sides of Erie street up to the 2nd street crosswalk, and by a large tree and a power pole on the eastern side of Erie street just south of the 2nd Street intersection. In its current form, drivers and bikers along Erie Street cannot see pedestrians in the 2nd Street crosswalk until the pedestrians have already entered the roadway, pedestrians cannot see traffic on Erie Street at this intersection until they enter the roadway, and vehicles and bikes traveling west along 2nd Street must drive past their stop sign and pull onto Erie Street in order to visualize vehicles and bikes that may be traveling towards them along Erie Street.
  • 2nd St & Warren St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    At this crossword, there are stop signs for cars but they routinely ignore it. Additionally, the street doesn’t have lane delineations and is wide, so even if a car does stop for a pedestrian, other cars swerve and go around it without realizing there is a crosswalk.
  • 340 Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown
    The intersection of Newark, 5th and Merseles is a tragedy waiting to happen during morning rush hour as kids are crossing on the way to PS5. There is no stop sign, traffic light to protect pedestrians in the crosswalk. Drivers ignore the flashing crossing lights and turn a 2 lane road into 4 as the cross the median and pass vehicles on the right OR LEFT to get by the cars that DO stop for pedestrians. They also ignore the crossing guard (who has been absent the past week). The 25mph speed limit is ignored as people are doing 40. In the few weeks school has been open, there have been close calls even when the crossing guard is there holding up a stop sign. The construction at the intersection also limits sidewalk space.
  • Brunswick St & Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    Bollards and corner expansion requested for Brunswick and Newark. Cars make a right turn off Newark at a rapid speed. Many children cross at this corner for PS5.
  • Bay St & Marin Blvd Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown

    Thank you for adding pedestrian lights to this intersection. Unfortunately, drivers around here are brazen and it’s not enough.

    They do not stop for pedestrians with the lights flashing. And if you’re in a vehicle crossing Marin from Bay Street, good luck! You have to pull out into the middle of Marin to see around parked cars, and then pray someone in both directions stop due to a constant flow of traffic on both sides. Also, when there’s a red light a block away on either side, cars block the intersection for both cars and pedestrians. Doesn’t make sense that there isn’t a light here as well.

    I’ve almost been hit as a pedestrian multiple times. And I’ve witnessed car accidents due to the blind spots in this intersection.

    It continues to get more unsafe as the population on Marin grows, especially given this is flanked by 351 Marin and the Hendrix. Will only get worse with the two new condo buildings going up on Bay and Provost.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  • Berry Lane Park Union St, Jersey City, NJ, 07304, USA - Bergen-Lafayette
    I have noticed multiple requests to either add multiple stops signs or traffic lights along Garfield Ave near Berry Lane Park. It’s tragic when elected officials brag about a new development just to flake on community safety. Students, elderly residents, pet-owners, etc. should’nt have to deal with speeding and drivers who refuse to stop. If you want more people to move here, the least you can do is protect them.
  • St Pauls Ave Jersey City NJ 07306, United States - Journal Square
    Btwn Bevan and 139 on Saint Paul's it is a 2 way road. The only reason it's two ways if for the awful parking lot that serves zero purpose for the community considering all of the buildings in this block, have gated parking with hundreds of spots available to them. This area is incredibly dangerous for pedestrians AND drivers because people are driving into oncoming traffic to go around everyone waiting at the stop sign to turn right onto 139. There should be a bump out here after the lot entrance or some other way to prevent people from driving into oncoming traffic. It happens every morning all morning and it is very dangerous. My real opinion is that this entire stretch of road should be a dead end so this street ceases to be used for cut through traffic.
