    Faded Street sign
  • Highland Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    There are NO speed limit signs going south from Salem Hospital all the way to the pedestrian bridge after Crowdis St. where there is a 35 mph sign. There is one 30 mph speed limit sign going south by Collins Middle School. One 30 mph sign fell down on the SW corner of Colby St. 3 years ago and has not been replaced! The speed limit is 30 mph on Highland Ave. from the pedestrian bridge going north but only one sign and not until you get to the Salem Hospital.
    Result: Highland Ave. can be renamed "The Salem Speedway!"
    Signs need to be posted every few blocks on this main north south road.
    I would also suggest LOWERING the speed limit to 25 mph until the pedestrian bridge then up to 30 mph maximum to the Lynn line. Safety first! Many cars and trucks! also routinely go 45-50 when traffic is light....

    This was originally posted back on 6/20/2020 and NO new speed limit signs have yet been installed. On 6/26/2020, Officer Dana Mazola was killed by a speeding car (going 55 mph in a 25 mph zone) on Jefferson Ave. Please take action to stop the speeding! Enough said.

    5 Linden Street Salem, Massachusetts, 01970 - City of Salem

    This house used to have a single width, tandem driveway. After it was encroached upon too many times, they got the city to install a "No Parking, Driveway" sign. Last week they paved a two-car width driveway over their lawn (the city sidewalk and city curbs) effectively eliminating an entire on street space for parking.

    Please remove the sign that gives them the ability to have cars towed and make it clear somehow that people are allowed to park on the street in front of their new "driveway."

    Canal St & Ocean Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Because of the opening of Starbucks, there are more pedestrians trying to cross canal st, at ocean Ave. A pedestrian crossing light would be great! Like the one down the street, at the bike path.

    108 Marlborough Road Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    We previously requested to have a hidden driveway sign installed near our residence on 108 Marlborough Rd, while we understand that will not slow down speeders, our driveway is hidden from drivers coming from Highland ave and whether they are speeding or not it is very difficult for them to slow down or for us to know if they are coming. So whether it is a mirror or a slow down hidden driveway sign for safety sake something needs to be put here.
  • 29 Harbor St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    we've had several cars traveling fast the wong way on one-way Harbor St this week. I checked the cross streets and some have no "one-way" signs, there are no "wrong way" signs, and some others are hard to see. I hope the city can come check it out and help. i have several videos of the cars going the wrong way, appears to be accidentally, not intentional

    29 Valley St Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    The speed sign on Valley St is not calibrated correctly. It says I am going 13Mph when I was doing about 5mph I stopped on purpose and it said I was doing 11mph.
