  • 211–215 Coles St Jersey City 07302, United States - Downtown
    With all the new apartment buildings in the area, a safer pedestrian walkway under these overpasses would be greatly appreciated. It’s dark, sidewalks are filthy and not ADA accesible, and cars are constantly speeding. Make JC a safer place!
  • 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.

  • Grand St & Marin Blvd Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown

    Why was my previous request archived???

    I was walking my baby in our stroller along with my dog and almost got hit by a car in this corner TWICE. Care turning off of grand street to Marin are super aggressive. I’ve also seen multiple people almost get hit here beside me, and know a biker was killed in this location.

    This intersection is an issue because many people get off the highway and use this to cut through downtown. Either there is a red left turn signal and/or something, this intersection needs help.

  • 1st St & Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    This area needs curb extensions and loading zones. It’s unsafe for pedestrians because there’s nowhere for deliveries to be made.
  • 194 Wayne St Jersey City NJ 07302, United States - Downtown
    Wayne Street between Monmouth Street and Brunswick Street is considered an Access Easement, but drivers frequently use it as a shortcut to skip the traffic light at Monmouth and Columbus Drive or a shortcut from Brunswick to Monmouth to avoid the traffic light at Montgomery Street. Drivers frequently race down this narrow access easement at high speeds. Previous signage indicating the status of Wayne Street is old and illegible at this point. Please consider posting new signage of the status of Wayne St., multiple speed bumps / humps, a reduced speed limit of 10 or 15mph, and additional enforcement.
  • Lineau Pl & Reservoir Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The Heights

    cars often turn from reservoir to lienau at high speeds and/or speed down the one-block stretch before reaching a dead end at booream.

    the "no parking" section on the west side of the street that could benefit from a curb extension or alternative features to calm speeds.

  • Congress St & Palisade Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The Heights
    Something like 30-50 / hr buses try to squeeze through the block of Congress between Paterson Plank and Palisade—plus hundreds of vehicles and pedestrians. The onstreet parking of 20 cars should be banned during the morning rush. It makes difficult for buses to turn and reduces visibility of pedestrians at crosswalks. This would be a minor inconvenience for 20 people easing travel for thousands.
  • 235-249 Brunswick St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    The intersection of Brunswick and Pavonia is extremely dangerous. Countless times drivers do not stop or even slow down as they travel on Brunswick from 9th street towards 8th street. It is as though the stop sign there does not exist. I have been almost hit while walking my dog multiple times because someone did not stop. This is extremely dangerous because of the public park with a child playground and water pad as well as the dog groomer located on pavonia adds increased dog traffic in this area. I believe what is needed here is a raised crossed walk to bring the pedestrians up to eye level with the drivers as well as it creates some speed mitigation. Installing a speed hump further down the block would not stop drivers from blowing through the stop sign.
  • 686 Bergen Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07304, USA - McGinley Square

    Today I saw for the millionth time a pedestrian who waited until a break in cars, crossed into the marked crosswalk, but had fast-moving cars speed up dangerously and attempt to mow the walker down! This has also happened to me personally. This crosswalk has signs but no lights. It is not adequate for safety. Drivers do not stop! Drivers do not seem to understand how crosswalks work.

    Here's information about a study that shows cars need to be moving slower than 20mph to reliably stop for a pedestrian as required in a crosswalk, regardless of signage or laws: https://usa.streetsblog.org/2023/01/11/want-drivers-to-stop-at-crosswalks-slow-them-down-first/

    Please consider:

    -lowering speed limit for stretch of Bergen between Communipaw and Montgomery

    -marking crosswalks in this section with lights (currently only the ones in front of the school a few blocks down have flashing lights)

    -ticketing more for crosswalk or speeding violations in this area

    Thank you very much

  • St Pauls Ave And Central Ave Jersey City, New Jersey - The Heights
    We desperately need a traffic light at St Pauls and Central Ave the traffic onto Central Ave gets backed up by buses, and the school #6, 7 all around causing students to rush through Central Ave very unsafe
  • Jersey Ave & Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    Lack of monitoring and cars not stopping at the stop sign. Please add speed bumps or a raised pedestrian walk or lights so cars can be more aware of pedestrians crossing
  • 9th St & Jersey Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
    Broken white stantions all around Hamilton Park. This picture is 9th St at Jersey Ave, northwest corner. Another one is down diagonally across the intersection in front of the basketball court at the southeast corner.
