Witnessed a large gathering of people in the parking lot of the Irish American club. Due to covid 19 restrictions this doesn’t seem safe and would like to see something done about it. Other people are making sacrifices and this doesn’t help the problem.
I asked my neighbor at 24 Thacher Street why he does not park his cars in the driveway. He said that someone had complained. A representative from the city spoke to him about it. After their discussion the city person said it was OK to park in the street. This all sounds odd. The picture attached shows a empty driveway on 12/31/2017. His vehicles parked in the street are 7WR930, 71BP79, I have pictures f this two cars.and sometimes a green Toyota Camary. If I can't park on the street overnight why should he?.
Something needs to be done about morning traffic at this intersection, there is a 4 way stop and no one stops as they are using Malden Street as a cut through. Most of the time the cars are traveling North on West Street and taking a left to turn West bound on Malden Street and they roll through the stop sign. I’ve almost been hit and there are a bunch of kids that walk to school in this neighborhood. Malden Street should be a do not enter from 7-9am Street and there should be a police officer there a few mornings a week issuing tickets, the city would make a fortune from all the failed stops. This is a dangerous issue.
This issue has been reported numerous times since January 2018 and nothing has been done. Can you please fix, or inform us of why the crosswalk at Devir St and Highland ave is still not fixed and is not going to be fixed in the foreseeable future? This intersection is very dangerous, and I avoid it when I can, but unfortunately it's the only crosswalk for a awhile on this stretch of road so it's often unavoidable.
