332 Marin Blvd Jersey City 07302, United States - 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.
Central Ave & Hopkins Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07306, USA - The HeightsDuring an afternoon walk, I witnessed the aftermath of a terrible accident that occurred on the corner of Central and Hopkins Avenue. Where you see the orange in the picture is where the victim was on the ground badly hurt. Her lower left leg had been sheared to the bone from the ankle up to the knee on the inside. It was horrible and she lost so much blood. I hope she is ok. I think she was taken to Jersey City Medical.
In the meantime, I have to tell you that this intersection is very unsafe. There is a school across the street and usually a school crossing guard. It needs a TRAFFIC LIGHT. Please do something. I don't know that a traffic light would have helped this woman, but I don't know that it wouldn't have either. This is a terrible situation.
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!
Monticello Ave & Communipaw Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07304, USA - Bergen-LafayetteAt this intersection, I'm requesting if it's possible to make all left turns delayed with ample timing. In morning rush hours, the left
turn lane signal turns from green to red too quick as well as vehicles using left lane to go straight so not to wait in traffic.
Communipaw and Monticello Ave location.
300–328 St Pauls Ave Jersey City NJ 07306, United States - Journal SquareNow that the pilot is over traffic is even worse on St Paul's and especially the intersection at Tonelle which is total grid lock Speeding and dangerous drivers are also back Please reassess the pilot
Ferry St & Palisade Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07307, USA - The HeightsMy husband was clipped by a car while crossing this crosswalk, and the driver followed us into Low Fidelity to start a fight. This crosswalk is incredibly dangerous and drivers are getting more and more aggressive.
We continue to get stuck in the middle of the crosswalk since northbound cars fail to stop for crossing pedestrians. Where is the safety study that was requested more than a year ago? What is being done to protect pedestrians?
West Side Ave At Harrison Ave Jersey City, NJ 07304, USA - West SideThe barriers that were set up to prevent dangerous turns have been crashed into and not replaced. most of them are gone. Last week I witnessed two pickup trucks swerve from behind the bus at the bus stop at Harrison Ave and Westside to make a turn onto Harrison Ave. during am rush.
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/
-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
6th St & Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ, 07302, USA - DowntownI live at 361 Newark Avenue. There is a crosswalk directly across the building. On the cross street there is also a stop sign, but this particular location does not have any traffic control. It is difficult for pedestrians to cross from one side to the other since there is no traffic light or stop sign. If a car does finally decide to stop, the cars at the stop then begin to go and do not give pedestrians a chance. I have also seen quite a few accidents in this location due to the crossing of pedestrians.
340 Newark Ave Jersey City, NJ 07302, USA - DowntownThe 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.
Marin Blvd & 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
Newport Pkwy & Washington Blvd Jersey City, NJ, 07310, USA - The WaterfrontThe city really needs to do a traffic safety study at this location The crosswalks on Newport Parkway just east of Washington boulevard are very dangerous Cars fly through here and do not stop for pedestrians in the cross walk It's been requested months ago, but the city hasn't done a thing Someone is going to get hurt or killed Let's address this issue
