861-889 Main St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5Just crossed the intersection of Forest and Main. Both sides of the sidewalk are dug up, I had to step into traffic, no one was directing traffic nor was there a clear path directing me as a pedestrian where to go. This is a heavily traveled pedestrian and cyclist route to get to Oak Grove - which we've been complaining about for months now so you should be more than aware - and someone is going to get hurt unless safety measures are taken.
493 Main St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4People continuously run the red arrow at this intersection, every single day, including MBTA buses and police/fire non-emergency vehicles. As a pedestrian who crosses this intersection twice a day, I've nearly been hit multiple times. It's very dangerous and needs to be dealt with. I see that multiple complaints have been made about this problem over the years and nothing has been done to improve safety.
876 Main St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4Sidewalks are closed on both sides of Main and both sides of Forest. Pedestrians must walk in the street through a construction zone with no area marked off for them to do so. The dangers of this intersection are well documented. And it is a major pedestrian route for the T station. Please come up with a plan to allow pedestrians to safely navigate before someone gets hurt here.
Mbta-Malden Center 230 Pleasant St, Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2
Can something please be done about the exit from the busway and drop-off areas on the Commercial St side? Busses are incredibly aggressive and pull out of the busway onto Commercial, with many of them getting over to take an immediate left onto Centre St with no regard for the flow of traffic and cars who are already in the road. Cars exiting the dropoff area do the same, but are not nearly as problematic.
It holds up traffic and, more importantly, is incredibly dangerous.

Can a cross walk be added to this intersection for pedestrians?
This intersection seems like a good area to have a cross walk because of the median and traffic light pole already there. Many people walk to Oak Grove along this street and I have noticed it is difficult to do it safely.
There are no other designated crosswalks along Forest Street.
I also think there should be a walk button and cross walk for crossing Main at Forest. This would improve pedestrian safety in Malden when walking to Oak Grove.
29 Winter St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4I just witnessed yet ANOTHER near head on collision caused by a reckless driver turning from Winter onto Autumn. This one drove past stopped traffic the full length of the block on Winter from Banks to Autumn on the wrong side of the double yellow, before nearly hitting a car head on turning right from Autumn onto Winter. This is CONSTANT during the evening rush hour, whenever the traffic backs up from Main. I have nearly been hit more times than I can count, as has probably just about every driver who lives in this neighborhood. The behavior is horrendously dangerous, not only for other drivers, but especially for pedestrians who have no reason to expect a car driving the wrong way. As I posted before, I saw a woman and two young children almost run over a few months back by a driver pulling this exact same stunt. The area is dangerous enough without this being tolerated. We need some enforcement here please. Between this and the drivers flying the wrong way up Kenmore as a short cut, it is only a matter of time before something very bad happens.

Oakland Rd Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 5Contractor rebuilding a retaining wall behind 175 Mt. Vernon st. When i asked if he is working for the city or property owner, he doesn`t give a strait answer. The wall is on city property. The contractor and his workers are using property that I rent to work out of and store materials. Is this legal? Is a permit required?
Exchange St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
The past couple of weeks I have had to pickup a family member from the Malden MBTA Station daily. Two nights out of the last nine I have experienced WRONG WAY DRIVERS on Exchange Street! 😰 One was at the intersection of Washington (came down Washington from Pleasant and took a RIGHT onto Exchange) the other was at the intersection of Middlesex.
There seems to be a great deal of traffic coming down Exchange Street. I have noticed this while waiting on Exchange Street to pick up my passenger. (The Malden MBTA Station is just SUCH A DANGEROUS PLACE when entering as EVERYONE just stops at the entrance to drop off rather than pull into a safe spot. I felt it would be safer for BOTH of us if I just waited on Exchange Street.) Think maybe the area should be looked at and MORE SIGNAGE be put up to make it clearer to drivers that Exchange Street is ONE WAY. In both instances it didn’t look like the drivers knew it was a one way street as they both looked quite puzzled at to why so many vehicles were coming towards them.
Hoping a review of the area and added signage with make Exchange Street safer for all!
28 Autumn St Malden, MA 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4Trucks arrived at the corner of Autumn and Rosemont around 6:25 AM, along with the sounds of back up signals, loud voices, and equipment being unchained. By 6:45 this piece of heavy equipment was being offloaded before being driven down Autumn, rattling houses as it went. Looks like the work isn't even in the area, and that the area is being used merely to park and unload equipment. This activity is not supposed to begin until 7:00, correct?
Fairmont St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 1
About year 1-2 yrs ago, 90-92 fairmont street was purchased and rented. I do not know who the landlord is but the neighbors and I have been witnessing a multitude of issues with the new tenants.
1) #90- On the second floor, there is a couple living there who have different but steady tenants coming in and out. (between 3-4 people extra that change every few months. We are assuming that they are subletting.
2) #92 -There are at least 5-6 people currently living in the property when the landlord rented to one woman. Again, these people change from time to time, indicating a sub-letting.
With all these people in a small house, comes:
1) Alcohol related fighting in the middle of the night-(police are called several times)
2) Trash is put out every friday night when the trash day is Monday. As a result Animals break through the bags, leaving garbage all over the street
3) Constant noise into all hours of the night (music, fighting, parties)
4) No respect for the neighbors
5) Absent landlord
6) MOST IMPORTANTLY: They bring with them 10-12 cars (driveway only holds 3 cars). including vans, constructions vans and their own cars but 10 spots are taken on Fairmont street from this one house.
Everyone is sick of it! Please help us.
