Description

Especially during rush hour, the roads through Harvard Square need to be closed to vehicles. There are way too many pedestrians and cyclists trying to get to the MBTA stop and the sidewalks are way too narrow.

Until this is done, the city needs to post multiple crossing guards to keep people safe, as well as have a police office on hand to ticket drivers who run lights and do not stop behind the stop line. It'd also be good if a tow truck can be on hand to remove cars blocking crosswalks and bike lanes. The City's negligence could lead to serious injury or death if action isn't taken swiftly.
