Thanks! Thanked!506 Trapelo Road Waltham, MassachusettsMotorists, coming down Trapelo Rd to turn right onto Forest St, are operating at unreasonable speeds and either rolling the red light or blowing through it. This poses a serious risk to pedestrians, and motorists crossing Trapelo Rd to Forest St from the Metropolitan Parkway. My concerns are especially driven given that I was almost struck by a speeding pickup truck several weeks ago. And to this very day, I continue to see people rolling, blowing through the red light to get onto Forest St. I perused the City of Waltham's website, but couldn't find anything relevant to traffic enforcement complaints. It's my hope that someone from the city, such as the Waltham Police, acknowledge this and see to it that some enforcement be allocated to address this.
Stow St Waltham, MA, 02453, USASomething needs to be done about the speeding on Stow Street (BOTH DIRECTIONS) and Tavern Road. The turn from Stow onto Tavern isn't a ramp to Rt 95!! Yet drivers are speeding around the corner racing to the red light (and honking at each other). The signal light change of last year was a HUGE mistake and has caused unnecessary backups all the way down Stow Street. It's like no one from the city actually has observed what has happened. They make a change and never monitor. If they did, they would see it was a mistake.
The City of Waltham needs to do something about the speeding on this street - put up SIGNS! Start ticketing people! Do something! People like to walk with their children and dogs on this street and it's dangerous because of the speeding.
