  • Traffic Signals Acknowledged
    457-461 Lafayette St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Flashing light for people walking the bike path to cross Lafayette close to the lead mills and Salem/Marblehead line. Unfortunately drivers completely ignore the light. We get halfway across when one side of traffic stops but people speed through on the other side, nearly hitting us. This should be a full traffic light, not a flashing orange light.
  • 35 Flint Street Salem Massachusetts - City of Salem
    does not exist and need to be added on Lafayette street in several places. The street is too wide to only have crosswalks and no traffic signals. Children are going to school there and need to be able to cross the street at any time not just when the paid guard is helping them.
  • 44 Boston Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    On the corner where Dunkin Donuts is with Walgreens on Boston Street and Bridge Street is very deadly to try to cross even with the crosswalk no one will stop multiple times my self and my children have almost gotten hit trying to walk across the street to Dunkin Donuts nobody stops there is a crosswalk but that nobody sees it I really think you should invest in time to think about putting a proper cross walk light there for safety of everyone

    The river walk along Leslie's retreat park is great. There is a very real danger of drowning here however. If you look in the North river there are new wood walls on either side of the river. These walls offer absolutely no grip or hand or foot holds. If someone were to fall in their only option would be to swim up to 100 yards possibly against a strong current to be able to climb out near O'Rourke's.
    At mid tide the wall is seven feet high with no hope of a person touching bottom.

    Is there some way the city can put even some makeshift 2*4 ladders inside these walls in a couple places in each side?

    Honestly, especially in winter, the next person who falls in here or has to go in after a child or dog is going to die. There is no way to get out of the water even if you are in great shape. It's a flat wall. You couldn't design a better trap if you tried.

    Please consider this issue, it's completely unsafe.

    A committee that is funded with city tax dollars and has several city paid members is actively pursuing and promoting fund raising in regards to a ballot question. This is a clear.violation of MA election laws
  • 1 Swampscott Road Salem, MA 01970, United States of America - City of Salem
    The city has posted 25 mph signs illegally, in violation of both federal and state guidelines.
  • 100 Washington St Salem MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    This is an very busy tourist section between viewing the bewitched statue, the tours, and all the restaurants near. A crossing signal would be a great addition here especially with all the night life around here and many people walk home or to the hotel if local it would make it a lot safer the only crossing signals on this road are at the tavern in the square intersection and the intersection at the train station I think adding one in the middle would be smart and safer with the amount of people walking around that intersection and cars driving, its always a traffic jam.

    Question: Why are some in favor of an "Addiction Recovery" facility vs. 4 new condominiums (8 units) on the site of the old Ward 2 Social Club? I can understand concerns re. traffic but, don't the neighbors feel that a slight uptick in traffic would far outweigh the cons of having an addiction recovery center in the neighborhood?

    I saw that the last time someone broached this topic, on this site, it was taken down after receiving some fairly heated responses from neighbors. Is reporting potholes and graffiti more important than the safety of our families, specifically those of us who have young, impressionable children?

    The question that I have, as I'm sure others do, as well, is how do we stop this from happening? Can't the abutting neighbors (whose names are public due their pending lawsuit) realize that a new condominium, with the proposed beach access and other improvements, will raise land values for all and beautify the Bridge Street Neck neighborhood? Why would anyone choose an addiction clinic, or the abandoned social club, over a new development that will improve the entire neighborhood?

    Again the stoplight from federal and Boston a cross with a lights are multiple children cross that and again nobody stops they will sooner run you over you have to stand in the middle of the street to get somebody to stop which is not safe multiple people and myself have reported this issue I'm not understanding if you can't fix the light can you at least put a pedestrian crossing sign it shouldn't be that hard can fix everything else in Salem but this for the safety of the children of our city you can't fix it that's a little insane don't you think
  • 168 Bridge St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Please pass to the Salem PD: two drivers ran the red light while the crosswalk signal was lit (6:14am 1/12/17). I cross this intersection weekday mornings between 6:10-6:18 am and evenings between 5-7 pm. I see an average of 4 cars a week run the red light at this intersection. Twice between mid-November and end of December I was nearly Hit when crossing IN the crosswalk while the crossing light was ON due to drivers running the red light. This issue is getting worse. Despite the reflective clothing I wear drivers are ignoring the lights. Someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed. PLEASE do something to address this issue.
