Crosswalk not marked other than barely noticeable sign. Regularly used by pedestrians to visit new restaurant and mercer students walking to/from class to avoid college street. Drivers don't slow down or notice the pedestrian crossing sign, instead they regularly exceed the speed limit and make crossing very scary during high traffic and at night.
There are no convenient crosswalks across Georgia Avenue, making it dangerous for students crossing to get to and from the Law School and for visitors going to Coleman Hill. Currently, drivers speed past these areas without watching for pedestrians. A crosswalk with ample signage would increase safety.
I have asked for speed bumps to be installed at this location at the stop sign on Curry drive as well as a speed bump on Boulevard at that location. NO ONE stops at this sign and people speed up and down this hill all the time. A drunk driver coming UP the hill destroyed trees, Ga Power pole, his car, etc. last NIGHT. HE HAD TO BE GOING very FAST TO DO THE DAMAGE HE DID. That was going UP the hill also!!. They go faster down the hill. Someone is going to be seriously injured at the intersection if something is not done NOW!!!!! It is time for COMMON SENSE to correct this issue. We need speed bumps like the one at Ingliside Avenue on both streets since they also speed down BOULEVARD> You put up speed limit signs and said speed bumps were not warranted BUT people see the speed limit signs you put up telling them how fast they are going and they slow down before getting to them. DO SOMETHING.
We've requested a speed study and it hasn't happened! We are sick of the super speeders going through Shirley Hills. We need humps and a speed change pronto! People speed 20+ over speed limit DAILY. We have children who can't even safely cross into our own neighborhood park. The people of this neighborhood are willing to assist in making this happen! Please help us. Call me anytime for info 478-919-7232

High Accident Area. I just witnessed my 4th car accident since the roads were narrowed along Oglethorpe, because it is now almost impossible to check for inbound/outbound traffic when pulling onto Oglethorpe from the side streets of the housing area located on Oglethorpe. By the time you have pulled up enough to see past parked cars, your almost sitting in the road. Something needs to be done, or accidents are going to continue to happen. This is a very high traffic area due to its location to schools, the hospital, and Mercer. I mentioned studying “speed” but really that’s not the problem (though some is) the issue is visibility.
This brick house/duplex has been unoccupied for quite a while. It is owned by Associated Partners LLC out of Tallahassee, FL and clearly they don't care about it. The tree is dead and large pieces of it fall into the street frequently. There is also a power pole nearby. The yard is VERY overgrown and the weeds have extended to the curb & street - not to mention into neighboring yards! This makes the rest of us - who take care of your yards - look bad! Regular property maintenance for absentee owners needs to be enforced!!!
Cars traveling south on college frequently jump on to the sidewalk at this point. The road turns slightly and the sidewalk narrows right before the train track bridge. I have almost been hit several times and I have see cars drive over the sidewalk almost daily. A child or a runner w/ headphones is going to be killed or seriously injured at some point. The curb should be raised and the sidewalk widened. There should be caution signs and ideally some form of speed suppression right before the bridge.
Home appears to be abandoned. The yard's grass and shrubbery are grossly overgrown, full trash cart has been sitting in the front yard for months. Neighbors have stated they believe the abandoned and unmaintained pool in the backyard is responsible for the noticeable increase of mosquitos. I have left messages regarding these concerns on the owner's voicemail with no response. Please assist ASAP.
