483 Centre Street Newton, Massachusetts
The recently installed crosswalk signals at the intersection of Centre St and Church St beep audibly 24 hours a day, every day, regardless of whether anyone is standing at the crosswalk. The beeps come one second apart and are of a certain frequency that cannot be muted by wearing earplugs or closing the windows. During the day it is annoying, but the incessant beeping through the night is positively intolerable. Please fix it. I am one of many residents at the Westbrook Apartments on the corner of Church St, and I can't imagine that I am the only one to have complained about this. I do not want to be inconsiderate if the signal is meant to help people who are visually impaired, but it seems other options must exist, or at the very least it seems completely unnecessary for the beeping to persist nonstop throughout the night. Thank you.
