The traffic light located at the entrance to the Fire and Police Academy on W Hanover Ave needs attention (light changes/turns red when nobody's waiting). The hill grade at this location is high for the travelers on W Hanover Ave and the light is badly programmed to turn Red even though there are no vehicles waiting to attempt to exit the "academy", or the facilities across the street - to gain access onto W Hanover Ave. The light changes to Red on the W Hanover Ave for drivers at all hours of the day; and is painfully noticable at late evening and early morning and on weekends when none of the facilities have need for the light. The unnecessary stoppage of Hanover Ave traffic at this location (vehicles traveling up the steep hill & breaking going down the hill) is a big waste of fuel and brake pads with nothing to gain. Better switching is needed here - it's better for the economy and the environment; and, it would make me smile.
Corner Of Farmstead Drive And Knoll Road In Parsippany - Morris County
The school crossing guard parks his car within a few feet of the Stop Sign at the corner of Farmstead Drive and Knoll Road in Parsippany. This forces any car approaching the Stop Sign on Farmstead Drive to go around his car and stop on the opposite side of the road. Cars come around the corner fast from Knoll Road onto Farmstead and do not expect a car to be stopped on their side of the road. On several occasions, I have had near miss head on collisions where I have had to hold my hand on the horn to avoid being hit. This is just one example of a situation that prevails at many crossing guard intersections, not only in Parsippany but other towns.
Cars come onto Main St. in Succasunna and speed up while car(s) are sitting facing east on Main to turn left onto Green Lane. They accelerate and gun the engine to close up any gap to the car in front of them and during rush hour will not allow people to turn left. I have elderly parents I must get back to and these drivers are being dangerous and not road curteous. The other issue is coming onto Main and turning right soon onto Green Lane. We have to tap our breaks and put the blinker on in advance as people fly off Rt. 10 cut over the double yellow line and then come right on your bumper tailgating while you turn into Green Lane. They drive in a menacing manner and seem to have road rage as you are trying to get off the road.
uneven road surface on Clarke place makes it very difficult walking for senior citizens, just walking from our front door to our garage is a challenge as I have had Vascular bypass on my leg, and my wife has had two small TIA's that makes uneven road a hazzard
When I sat on council the DOT promised us that when we did the streetscape project they would come out and install directional arrows on the traffic light at this critical intersection. O.K. so where are they? Council needs to remind them as I believe it would relieve the lineup of traffic at busy traffic hours.
149 Washington St Morristown, NJ 07960 - Morristown
On county road 510 westbound approaching the intersection with Mills St. the road opens up briefly from one lane into two. Some drivers will turn right while some continuing westward see an opportunity to move into the right lane and get ahead of those in the left. When this occurs during a red light this either creates a backup for those wishing to turn right or sets the stage for a potentially dangerous drag race when the light turns green,the problem being that the road immediately returns to a single lane. I believe the right lane should be restricted for right turns only and so marked.
