5th Avenue & Washington Street Troy, NY, USATwo way stop on Washington, with an overgrown stop sign on the west side of Washington. When crossing 5th, pedestrians cannot see cars coming up Fifth as they crest the hill, and there is no stop for 5th. No crosswalk, nor any signage warning of pedestrian crossing, etc. Many children live on this block, and it is a bus stop for School 14, which occasionally drops off on the west side of the street (the children all live on the east side of the street, and have to cross). Many times, I have been out trying to cross with my children, and had to jump back because we couldn't see cars coming up the hill (heading south on 5th), and cars refuse to yield for pedestrians already crossing, even more than halfway across the road. Even something as simple as a "children at play" sign would do wonders for this intersection.· Reported by PernRider · Flag Flagged
382 10th Street Troy, NY
We live very nearby the intersection of 10th and Rensselaer streets and have been hearing gunshots again.
This was a big problem last year but after the TV news story, police put a stop to the gunshots.
We heard a gunshot last night around 10pm and I just heard a shot this morning at 10:50 am.
I know there are other readers on 10th and on Oakwood Ave. Is anyone else hearing these gunshots?
Could it be firecrackers? The last time I called the police to report gunshots, it turned out to be fireworks. I don't even bother calling anymore.· Reported by yosemite sam · Flag Flagged
2646-2660 Old 5th Ave Troy, NYI seen with my own eyes a Dealer by the name of Juan Rodriguez selling out on this block all the time. Right as children play all around him, and they smoke dope right out in the street. Guy works up at Peebles on Hoosick st. Swing by and thank him for ruining our neighborhoods.· Reported by Concerned Senior Citizen, Needs Police Help · Flag Flagged
1-3 King St Troy, NY 12180, USAWhen traveling in a southerly direction on River Street, you are not allowed to make a turn to go East onto Federal Street. This was designed initially to have travelers go into downtown. The days of downtown shopping are practically over yet the traveling up the hill is still denied. Open your eyes, this is the 21st. century.I· Reported by Normand · Flag Flagged
10th And HoosickThe corner of 10th Street and Hoosick Street going west, there should be a "no right turn on red" sign. Vehicles are forever pulling out into the driving lane in order to take a right on red. This has the potential for a very serious accident. I have complained about this situation before, but evidently no one from the traffic dept reads these comments. It would be advisable for them to occasionally pay attention to the citizens using the roads as they are the ones to spot these problems.· Reported by Barbara Coleman · Flag Flagged

Hey, skinny, dopey eyed white boy with the orange dog, you are expected to pick up after your dog.
I know you were too busy being stupid-looking and talking on your phone (while watching your dog do his thing) to bother cleaning it up this morning but keep in mind that some of us around here are keeping an eye on you that are smarter and more disciplined than you.
You WILL be photographed and publicly shamed (not that you know what shame is).
Sorry that the rest of us do not seem to understand what makes you so special...it's not likely to change.
When you get a ticket for not cleaning up after your poor dog (who had NO choice of who would be his owner), I bet you'll feel really special!
Don't worry, Mom and Dad will wipe your a$$ again, just like they have been doing for about 20 years now.· Reported by Sick of your sh*! · Flag Flagged

There are no speed limit signs on Oakwood Ave.
If you're traveling on Oakwood ave torward hoosick street... the first and only speed limit sign is way up on Oakwood ave BEFORE Oakwood cemetery! At that's a temporary sign built out of 2x4's.
By the time drivers get to middleburgh ave and the long HILL, they've forgotten what the speed limit is. I regularly see drivers exceeding the 30mph limit by 10-20mph.
I'm sure it'll take a pedestrian or a child to get killed before the city puts proper speed limit signs on Oakwood ave.
The attached picture is just west of middleburgh ave in the area where there are no speed limit signs. If you live in the area of travel through oftne, you recognize these homes.· Reported by ted · Flag Flagged
Interstate 787 Troy, New York
bridge ID number
The metal joints that vehicles drive over on the collar city bridge appear to be falling apart. I saw some workers woring on one joint a few weeks ago but now, another joint is "clunking" loudly when driving over it. If you drive on alternate 7 into and out of Troy, you've heard the joint "clunking" that I am reporting.
The bridge is 32 years old. When was the last time this bridge was thoroughly inspected from top to bottom?· Reported by sallyEMT · Flag Flagged
