I have seen many accidents and near accidents on Edwards Street. Cars driving between Orange and State on Edwards really speed, and there are a lot of hidden driveways. Hence, as cars pull in and out of the driveways, speeding cars can't slow down fast enough and hit them.
There isn't much that can be done about the hidden driveways, but what about the speeding? Maybe one of those "this is your speed" signs would at least encourage people to slow down?

There is a large sinking / patched cut here. I'm not sure if it qualifies as a pot hole cuz its just too large. I would call it more like a reverse speed bump.
It looks like this was caused by some sort of utility cut in the asphalt.

I just witness three tow trucks in a row driving up Bishop toward Orange St. traveling AT LEAST 50 m.p.h. This is a 25 m.p.h. street and these tow trucks, which are undoubtedly being contracted by the city to two vehicles for street cleaning on this street and others today, should be ticketed. Everyday I see vehicles traveling at excessive rates of speed up this street. I have lived here for two years and not once have I seen a traffic officer with a speed gun on this street.

Once again it appears that FedEx is not concerned with training their drivers to follow basic traffic regulations. Also the lack of enforcement by the police is clearly encouraging drivers to brazenly disregard the safety of others in favor of their own convenience. This driver crossed the entire intersection on red while an NHPD car sat writing up a fender bender and did not even bat an eye.

The "walk" signals in this intersection do not give enough time to safely cross the street. I barely make it as a young, healthy adult--I can't imagine that the elderly or people with kids can make it before cars start speeding through again.

There are two dead squirrels at the base of an utility/electrical box that has a loud fan. The squirrels may be diseased or were perhaps electrocuted. The box should be checked for safety and the animal remains properly disposed of.

Some homeowners have lobbied the city to construct a rotary ( too little space, speed bumps or a raised structure to impede ( they say "slow down" ) the traffic here. With the snow having a similar effect, traffic on Edwards st has been a nightmare, and altercations are becoming common. Luckily, however, there are still no accidents reported. The city can use the allocated $200,000-$300,000 on some more useful project.

It's bad enough when residents speed down Bishop St, a family friendly st with lots of children, but I just witnessed a NH Parks pickup truck turn off Orange and speed down Bishop to State at about 50 mph. Emergency lawn mowing?

Cars speed excessively down Edwards Street, particularly the stretch between Orange and State Street. I was almost hit pulling out of my driveway the other day! A speed bump would help resolve the issue.

A car accident yesterday (9 July 08) at this intersection was the result of a driver speeding through a red light. Police need to crack down on these violations in order to stop these accidents.
