Issues: street signal
13100-13198 Eastpoint Park Blvd Louisville, KY 40223, USAAt the intersection LaGrange Rd and Nelson Miller Parkway we need a traffic light. It is very difficult to exit the office park against the traffic on LaGrange Rd especially at 5pm when everyone leaves at the same time.
5 VotesFix it! Voted!Stannard Ave Branford, CTRed house on Stannard Ave 2nd on left from traffic light has dogs that bark all day everyday starting around 630a until sometimes 9=10p. These dogs get loose and roam as well. They haven't any shots, and are very aggressive. I'm afraid my dog or child will be attacked when they are running free. I have seen them chase joggers, and people riding bikes. My baby can't nap because of the noise. Numerous calls to animal control does nothing because they know them and warn them, I think it's unfair, and something needs to be done ASAP before someone is harmed.
Stannard Ave And Short Beach Rd Branford, CTThe traffic light on Stannard Ave leading to Short Beach Rd needs to be adjusted or reviewed. It will not change if a motorcycle comes to the light, it seems like it only changes based on the weight of a car. The motorcycles/scooters/bicycles that sit and weight for the light end up running it after about 5-10 min of sitting there, unless a car pulls up behind it. It's annoying and dangerous at the same time. They'll sit out there revving their engines and then finally take the chance to turn left risking oncoming traffic and being hit or killed. Please review this light. and change the way that it indicates when the traffic on Stannard Ave can go. Perhaps on a timer rather than based on a car sitting at the light like it is now, because it's not registering light weight cycles. Please before someone is killed because they take a chance and run a light that won't change.
2 VotesFix it! Voted!Sr 45 At Southfork Subdivision Old Hickory/Davidson, TNOver the years there have been ALOT of accidents (several fatal) at this intersection due to traffic NOT yeilding to cars that are already pulling out onto SR 45 out of the Southfork Subdivision. I have sit and watched this intersection and cannot begin to count how many times there have been "close calls" and even witnessed a few 'fender-benders'! Over the years there have been SEVERAL serious MVAs with fatalities also! Is it going to take the right person t o have to SUE the city in order to have a traffic signal placed at this location? They have a traffic light further down the road at THAT subdivision entrance! Whats it going to take? I have been told that people have even notified the councilman but still nothing has been done! I personally get tired of having to sit and sit waiting for traffic to clear in order to be able to pull out. Even then, alot of times you have to make sure an inconsiderate driver doesnt decide at the last second to pull into Southfork coming from the left lane WITHOUT using the center turning lane nor even a signal! (but they sure can be on their cell phones all along while making this illegal turn!)
Sellers Ave. @ Boeing Traffic LightThis is a huge accident waiting to happen. Numerous amounts of people come up the ramp from I95 north and turn right. They proceed to the traffic light a short distance away and u-turn at the light to avoid the ramp traffic. Many blindly U-turn right in front of traffic that has the green. Too many close calls have been witnessed.

If anyone's ever tried to take High Street between, say, Maxwell Park or the Laurel to 880 or Alameda during the day, especially about 2-7pm, knows this horrific backup.
Here's the situation: There are two lanes of traffic in each direction, no left turn lanes, no median barrier, no bike lanes, sidewalks abutting lanes of traffic (ie, no room to widen the street). The traffic light is on the simplest cycle imaginable: green for International, green for High, repeat.
When the light turns green for High Street, traffic in the left lane almost invariably wants to turn left, and has to yield to oncoming traffic, blocking the left lane for most of the cycle of the light. Meanwhile, traffic in the right lane has to yield to the high volume of pedestrian traffic in the neighborhood, which can easily block the right lane. It is not uncommon for traffic to only be able to advance a couple of car lengths per green. To make matters worse, few drivers signal their intentions to turn, at best at the last second when it is too late to get out of their lane!
While I don't expect any progress on Oakland driving etiquette, A left turn lane would alleviate a lot of this traffic. Perhaps signs at Courtland and 880 advising through traffic to take SR 77 (42nd Avenue).
Here's my ideal situation for this intersection: approaching International on High (in either direction), there would be, from right to left, a right turn lane, a through traffic lane, a left turn lane, and the opposing through traffic lane, coupled with signalized left turns, in all four directions (there is already a left turn lane on International, but no separate signal phase). This geometry involves some slight weaving in the intersection, but only about as much as there currently is at High and Foothill. Of course, it means that technically, this would create a bottleneck as two lanes in each direction merge into only one, but one lane that actually moves would be a remarkable improvement over none!
I have to drive this stretch of road multiple times a day, and I just can't believe how long this dysfunctional intersection has remained unchanged. Thank you!

Accessing the Polyclinic parking lot on the north side of their building really mucks things up here. The problem seems to be North bound cars turning left (or west) across the south bound lanes of Meridian, as well as having cars exiting that same parking lot.
The intersection stop lights are pretty quick. People in the south bound lanes are confused in how to handle the people using the polyclinic, and so often yield the right of way.
The effect is that only a few cars make it through the intersection (south bound) which is toward North Seattle Community College. About 15 minutes before each morning hour (when classes start) meridian can back up all the way to N 115th st. Lots of cars become impatient and drive aggressively here, sometimes running the red light so that they can continue on their way, either south on meridian, or east towards I-5 on Northgate way.
My suggestions 1) is for the Polyclinic to direct their customers to using their garage entrance (free to the public) which can be accessed from N. Northgate way, just west of Meridian; 2) extend the length of the intersection lights, or 3), prevent north bound drivers on Meridian to turning left into the polyclinic.
2-20 Loveland St Middletown, CT 06457, USAThere are no parking signs on the north side of Loveland Street but cars continually park on that side down by the traffic light at the intersection of Loveland St. & South Main St. causing the left turn lane to be unaccessible to traffic wishing to turn left which also causes traffic to back up on Loveland St. When they attempted to paint the curb yellow indicating the no parking area, there were vehicles illegally parked there so the curb could not be painted. Please enforce the no parking ban in that area.
1-25 Hillside Ave Middletown, CT 06457, USAThis light is super long for no reason making people run the light. I've timed it at the end of Hillside it stays red for about 4 minutes
5-7 Russell St Middletown, CT 06457, USAThe section of road just under the stop lights is littered with potholes
