  • 244-250 Bridge St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Walk signal at the lights outside the T station is not working properly. Pedestrians had to cross between green lights to get across to/from T station.
  • 11 South Mason Street Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Traffic patterns and speeding on mason st have increase dramatically. People frequently speed down the street and do not stop for pedestrians. There has been more than one occasion where myself or neighbor has been trying to cross the street or in the middle of crossing and a car comes speeding down. There needs to be speed pumps put in like you have done on some of the side streets off of Mason.
  • 1-11 Congress St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Pressure sensor plate for the traffic light on the corner of Congress and Derby (facing the Hawthorne with the garage on your left) does not work; the light will not change to green unless there is a car coming from the opposite direction.
  • North St & School St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    May we have the left turn signal restored when turning from Orne St onto North St? The left signal used to come on first as soon as the light was green. This allowed the back up on Orne and Appleton St to get through quickly. Now the left turn signal doesn’t come on until the end of the green light and there is a lot of havoc when the light first turns green ( from both directions, some people want to go straight, others want to turn; it is inefficient and very messy/dangerous).
  • 147 North Street Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Locator beacon on North side of School St. is very faint with no use to visually impaired travelers. May the volume of the northwest corner at School Street crossing beacon be increased? We understand there is also a locator beacon there for the North Street west to east crossing button and need distinction between the two. Thank you.
  • 100 North Street Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Unable to get pedestrian crossing lights to work from north bound side of street. Will operate from Mason St/North St side, but not across the street. Extremely dangerous crossing for train commuters and walkers with the lights, death trap with no lights!
  • 122 Highland Ave Salem MA 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Right lane green light burnt out
  • 30 Warren St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    This intersection is pretty dangerous due to the stop sign on Warren St heading east often being obstructed by large vehicles. When trucks and vans park directly before or in front of the stop sign, east bound traffic doesn't know it is a three way stop and they blow right through the intersection. I don't know if it is possible to make a few yards before the sign a no parking zone, but if it is I think it would go a long way to making this safe for pedestrians and vehicles driving through the Flint St portion of the intersection. Thanks for any help you can provide!
  • 2 Chestnut Street Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    As many people have already noted to the city, this is NOT the spot for a rotary. It is far too small an intersection for one and whomever designed this thing apparently does not actually drive. The turning angles are a mess, causing unsafe conditions....and guess what, big buses can't make the turn! Just saw an MBTA bus stuck in the rotary! Had to do a bunch of K-turn hitches and was still stuck. Had to drive over the curbs. Are you serious, Salem City Planner?? Can't wait for October traffic. Great way to make traffic even WORSE in Salem.
  • Cherry Hill Ave & Highland Ave Salem, Massachusetts, 01970 - City of Salem
    The lights at this intersection, coming from Cherry Hill Ave, does not cycle correctly. It doesn't turn green unless there's another vehicle behind it or in the other lane turning left. It appears it's mostly in the evening. A couple of evening ago the car in front of me was forced to take a right turn, as we had been sitting at that light for three cycles, and nearly missed getting hit by a truck. It's unsafe and if you're the only vehicle, you have to wait until another two cars are there, as you're stuck because you can't back up. PLEASE do something before someone gets hurt.
  • Mbta-Salem 252 Bridge St, Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    The cross walk light isn’t working.
  • Canal St & Mill St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Please evaluate whether the walk signal at this intersection can have its length increased. I walk fairly quickly, but find myself having to jog to make it across the street during the light. The cars in the right lanes do not respect the pedestrians in the cross walks when they are turning right on red, and I have to wait to cross after they've made their turn and end up missing most of the cross time.
