Quarry street has been split into 2 lanes at the intersection for Common and Furnace Brook, this creates a drag race mentaltiy when people leave the lights. They all want to be first. This street was designed as a single lane and should remain so for safety reasons. Too bad our current age dictaes the rules instead of the law
There is a makeshift basketball hoop attached to a utility pole on a public street. My understanding is that this is discouraged if not outright illegal. It frequently ties up the street with children at play (unsafe!), as well as causes general disturbances when matches continue past dark. Please have it removed as soon as possible. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Northbound cars regularly ignore the left turn only lane to turn onto Dimmock Street. The sole purpose of which is to cut ahead of traffic. Cars accelerate at a high rate of speed then in most cases cut into traffic with no turn signal making a very dangerous situation for those legally proceeding up Adams street. Pedestrians are also at risk with this drag race tactic.
At this location and on the other side of the tracks, given the foot traffic crossing over the MBTA rails and the food services on either side, there should be perminent, perhaps a couple BigBelly, trash recepticles to accomodate the well intended citizen who would like to disgard their trash but cannot, and, perhaps encourage the not so well intend to so also. If recepticles were there today I would have had the chance to properly disgard the trash I picked up along the way between Hancock and the rails. In addition, this area (especially on Billings) could have a more pleasant look and feel, if the City and Businesses were to realize the potential for themselves and passersby (Lets get them together on this). Please, at least put some receptilces year round for us so we can participate in helping to up hold a Cleaner - Greener Quincy. Thank you.
Please fill those huge potholes on the approach to the intersection from the city center and facing the Adams Estate. The potholes are almost in a massive row, so cars cannot avoid them at all. Fill them asap please before someone sue the city for their dented rims.
