Evertrust Plz & Montgomery St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
Today (3/11) morning at 8.30 am I was about to witness a tragedy. A group of school kids were were waiting to cross with their parents in front of 270 Marin Blvd, Jersey City, 07302. Shown with #1 in image. There is walk sign shown in #2, but car drivers never obey it. A little girl from the group ran forward to spot#3 in image and car came speeding from direction of #4 arrow and the girl almost hit the car. This is very dangerous crossing where a tragic accident is waiting to happen. Last month I witnessed a car accident at the same spot when a car exiting 270 Marin Blvd was hit by another car coming from direction of #4 arrow.
There is street parking very close to crossing as shown in #5 in image. People waiting for crossing at spot#1 can't see car without going dangerously close to spot#3 and car drivers can't see people and don't slow down to obey crossing sign. Please take care of the situation.
Some suggestions -
1. Remove parking spot shown in #5 in image so that there is more visibility
2. Install flashing walk sign much before spot #2 so that car drivers have time spot it and slow down
3. Paint signs on road or install speed hump
401–489 Pavonia Ave Jersey City NJ 07306, United States - Journal SquareToday a car almost hit my husband in the corner of Newark and Pavonia. They driver was texting and he didn't Stop ( there is a Stop sign). Please add a Traffic light here or one of those small lights you have all over Newark. This is very dangerous, and hundreds of people cross this street everyday
63 Sherman Pl Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The HeightsThe intersection of Sherman Place and Summit is perilous for pedestrians because cars race between the traffic lights at Manhattan and Hutton Streets. Drivers rarely stop for us when trying to cross, even when holding the hands of our children. There was yet another accident on Saturday when a car driving from Manhattan Ave to Hutton hit a car that was trying to make a left onto Summit — which is never easy. We need this intersection to become a 3-way Stop. The city added signs to stop for pedestrians a couple of years ago but the cars knocked them over and they were removed. It’s dangerous and unfair. I’ve lived her for 18 years and it only gets worse.
112 Mcadoo Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07305, USA - GreenvilleThis is the retaining wall in my backyard ! This is just a part of the wall that's crumbling ! The road behind my house (Highview Road ) and my yard is right in front of 30 Highview Road which is now being repaved and I'm sure it's only going to make the wall crumble more !
207 Van Vorst St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - DowntownWhen the building permits for the Lenox and the Maddox were issued by the city (circa 2016), the neighbors in house nearby requested a traffic study on Van Vorst for the increased vehicles. It's now 2022 and no changes have been made to the flow of vehicle traffic on Van Vorst (between Sussex and Morris Street. There is currently parking on both side of the street and two-way traffic. There isn’t room for 4 cars on Van Vorst and it's worse when there are larger delivery and food trucks parked at the intersection. Cars frequently cannot turn onto the street and are forced to back up into traffic. Visibility turning onto Morris is poor which creates dangerous conditions for pedestrians. The street can support only three cars, so either it should be turned into a one-way street or parking eliminated from one side.
18 Park View Ave Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - DowntownKnucklehead drivers or deliverers knocked these down.
Erie St & Pavonia Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - Downtown
Hi - I am a longtime resident and mom living in Hamilton Park. I’d like to request that the corner of Erie and Pavonia (but really all corners around Cordero) receive the white parking towers that prevent people from parking in the crosswalks.
Two weeks ago after checking repeatedly, a woman who was parked very close to the crosswalk in the location attached hit me and my 6 week old son who was in his bassinet. Last week, I saw it happen again to someone else.
Both times happened after normal school hours, but during Casper after care. I believe installing the white parking towers would prevent possible tragedy by giving a buffer between parked cars and pedestrians. They’re in many other locations in our neighborhood and it seems that surrounding the school should be a priority.
That specific crosswalk does not even have pedestrian signage. Just the crosswalk.
296 Palisade Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The HeightsCars very often don't stop for pedestrians crossing Palisade at this crossing on Booraem Ave. Yesterday, 6/29 I stopped before the crossing to let a couple with a baby stroller to cross. They waited for the coming traffic to stop which tool awhile. When they started crossing they were almost hit but a car that came behind me on the right. Some drivers are just reckless. This guy then yelled at this couple for crossing Palisade. Can we have more police presence here to calm these type of drivers please? Maybe blinking light signs here would help? Thank you.
Christopher Columbus Dr & Jersey Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - DowntownFor driving south on Jersey Avenue at the Christopher Columbus Drive intersection, there is a desperate need for a left turn traffic light. There is a day care at 532 Jersey Avenue so there are a lot of parents dropping off their children on Jersey Avenue. And Jersey Avenue is a very busy road. When drivers are going south on Jersey Avenue and want to turn left on Christopher Columbus Drive there are too many cars going straight from the opposite direction (driving north on Jersey Avenue) so the drivers trying to turn left are stuck and usually have to try to force their way in. This is very dangerous and I have already seen numerous almost accidents. And, often times there are parents and children crossing Christopher Columbus Drive that almost get hit because the driver on Jersey Avenue trying to turn left is trying to rush to make it before the next car going straight reaches them. It is a very dangerous intersection and I think it needs a left turn signal.
Grove St & Wayne St Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - DowntownPlease consider making the right turn from wayne onto grove NO TURN ON RED. Right turn is the only option for cars at this intersection. During a red light, drivers look to their left (but have trouble seeing oncoming cars from grove because of the parked cars there) but as a result do not look to their right whatsoever for pedestrians or bikes who have a green light.
184 Morgan St Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - Downtown
Traffic on Columbus and Marin is a headache and a hazard during rush hour and now with all the construction on Marin its becoming a nightmare.
Have you thought about
1. directing cars coming onto Morgan street between Marin and Newark to Newark Avenue
2. directing cars coming onto Morgan street between Marin and Warren to Warren Street.
3. By doing this you can remove the light on Marin/Morgan which will eliminate the backup on Columbus
just a thought
