  • South Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    The intersection of South Street and Arlington Street is dangerous as there is no signage. Most people do not know what to do - some people speed through while others randomly stop. There needs to be some signage in order to organize the intersection.
  • Woodland And Brook Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    There is a banged up car that has been parked on the shoulder at the corner of Woodland Drive and Brook Street for weeks. It is full of junk and clothes. This corner is an extremely busy school bus stop area and the car presents a danger to the children that must walk in the road to get around it. Putting them right in the blind spot of cars entering Woodland from Brook Street. Additionally it adds to the congestion of an already busy intersection at pick up and drop off time.

  • 7 Thru 25 Elm Street - Framingham

    Recently the parking ban for the odd side of the street was enforced on the residents of Chestnut and Elm Streets. Many of us were given tickets for parking in front of our homes (very few of us have driveways) with out any warning, prior notification or a chance to simply move our cars to the even side of the streets.


    Yet school teachers, parents, church goers, business owners and business customers are CONSTANTLY parking on the odd side of Elm Street EVERY SINGLE DAY, all throughout the day.

    It seems ridiculously unfair to give the residents of Chestnut and Edwards Streets parking tickets for parking on the odd side of the street when Elm Street has vehicles allowed to CONSTANTLY parked on the odd side of its street (in front of the Mary E Stapleton Elementary school – 25 Elm Street, the Boston Taiwanese Church – 15 Elm Street, the creepy daycare, and the Chimney Sweep Shop – 7 Elm Street) BLOCKING the view of oncoming traffic from drivers attempting to leave Chestnut Street.

    When I myself am trying to turn left or right out of Chestnut Street – onto Elm Street, it is sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to see ANY oncoming traffic from the left or the right because of cars parked on the odd side of Elm Street. Making a left or right turn onto Elm Street is often an extremely dangerous risk. So dangerous in fact, this past January a woman speeding through the Concord/Elm Street light, speeding into the elementary school zone, speeding well over 35 mph in a 20 mph zone, hit my car as I was turning onto Elm Street.

    Perhaps the town of Framingham could better serve its residents by monitoring the parking habits of drivers on busy dangerous streets, and not punish residents who are forced to park on the street due to the cramped layout of houses with no driveways.

  • 20 Briarwood Road Framingham, MA 01701, USA - Framingham
    The street light between 20 & 22 Briarwood Road is not functioning.
  • 200 Arlington Street Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    Arlington st, primarily a residential st with lots of families and small children has had a increasing number of 18 wheelers and car carriers traveling this route. It is now mainly trucks driving up and down this street at all hours. Concerns have been expressed by numerous neighbors on the amount of large trucks on this road and the safety concerns it brings to the people who reside there. The trucks are traveling to the businesses in the Arlington Heights area where there is a warehouse and a couple other businesses. There is another road on the other side of these businesses that is non-residential and would be more appropriate for truck routes. What can be done about this concern as it has become more and more of an issue over the last couple years. Thanks.

  • 120 Woodland Dr Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    At the service plaza on the Westbound side of the Mass Pike, in between exits 12 and 13, there is a yellow gate in the back. This is presumably used by authorized personnel only.

    However, recently I have noticed a substantial uptick in cars simply "cutting through" this area to avoid traffic and/or avoid paying a toll. This has resulted in increased traffic in the Woodland Rd/Audrea Rd/Florita Rd neighborhood. Often times this is late at night and neighbors of this quiet area aren't happy with the uptick in unauthorized use of that cut through.

    Who's jurisdiction is this, can the gate be closed and locked aside from official use, and what can be done to enforce this? Thank you!
