This has been a recurrent issue. Due to the location of the parked vehicle one could only conclude the driver works for the police department since this had happened repeatedly and never once ticketed. Parking like this is illegal for a reason.
13 Ramsey Place Albany, NY 12208, USA - Helderberg
Also known as 15 Ramsey Place. This house has been under re-hab for way too long. It's a rat trap and an eyesore. So much so the house at 11 next door never got sold after an investor bought it fixed it up and put it on the market. The current owner is rarely there working.
Cars race out of the park down Hudson Ave the wrong way putting young children's lives in danger. Needs to be additional signing including a sign attached to the traffic signal saying left turn only. that I've seen elsewhere in the city
Intersection Of State Steet And Willet Street Albany, New York - Central Avenue
The traffic signal at the intersection of State Street and Willet Street was removed about year to a year and half ago. A stop sign was placed on the right hand side of the road on the corner of the park. Since this has happened the rush hour traffic through this intersection is filled with horns due to no one yielding or taking turns at the intersection. For 45 minutes to an hour, daily, horns and yelling can be heard down the entire block. I've also witnessed reckless driving by some motorists trying to squeeze by vehicles. In addition, during non-rush hour times, I've witnessed dozens of cars running the stop sign, either because they can't see it, or choose to ignore it. I've almost been struck by speeders missing the sign several times, and I've witnessed my neighbors almost be struck. I'm sure the reason for the traffic signals removal was reasonable at the time, but I hope it can be reconsidered. It doesn't have to be a cycle of red/yellow/green, just a flashing red to let drivers know their approaching an intersection would be great. Thank you for your consideration.
This was first reported last winter and the only action since has been to spray paint the raised portion with a fluorescent paint to improve visibility; however the paint has long since washed away and the result remains a hazard. This is the third time I have reported this dangerous tripping hazard.
