There is a lack of speed limit signage on Ferry St, which is happens to be one of the busiest streets in Malden and not to mention in a school zone and a park. People speed through the intersection (cross/ferry) to beat the light and in turn causes accidents or very near accidents. Why aren’t their any speed limit signs or flashing speed beacons/speed radars present? An alternative solution could be to have raised cross walks or a raised intersection at the Cross St/Ferry St intersection and also at Upham St/Ferry St. Too many accidents or near accidents occur, the city of Malden should take the children’s safety serious and address the speeding issue before a serious accident happens. It’s in a school zone, it’s a no-brainer

Thank you for the input. Reach out to me by email and we can discuss the area and those concerns.
I’ve found that those drivers exhibiting the behaviors you describe, do not pay any mind to signage. There are some other things going on with signage and new speed laws that we can discuss further.
