17 VotesFix it! Voted!Intersection @ Wick Rd & Pardee Rd.
For over 40 yrs citizens have seen accidents -or have had to use extreme caution -at the intersection of Wick/Pardee in Taylor. Other intersections in our community have had "new" street traffic lights installed ... other intersections that did not necessarily *need them as much - seemingly for "cosmetic" reason. The two traffic lights in front of Heritage Park is one too many while accidents occur of a frequent basis just a few kilometers north at Wick. We live in the subdivision behind Sax Save-More and the years of hearing sirens has Got To Stop. We pay taxes. We vote. We serve. We deserve a safer intersection.
Fix This!! Before it is said that a life-disabling accident or death was Preventable however TAYLOR did not take heed. Wick: there are *three lanes* here. Visibility is extremely hampered* Cars are constantly switching lanes to avoid the left turning vehicles* Oncoming traffic is dangerously spontaneous. HELP and Thank you! We'll see if this gets "fixed" within the next 40 years.
Plantation Street And Research Drive Worcester, MA
The traffic signal at the intersection of Plantation St and Research Drive to allow cars to leave UMass University Campus/The Beechwood is malfunctioning at nights and on weekends. Cars wait for the traffic light to give a green light for at least 5-6 minutes (I've timed it many times, it takes at least this long to finally turn green), while the lights facing Plantation Street cycle through the Green Arrow/Green Light cycle many times without allowing cars leaving UMass or the Beechwood to get a green light.
12 VotesFix it! Voted!Gratiot And Marketplace Blvd
Due to the heavy traffic on Gratiot, cars turning on red from Hall Rd and all the fast food establishments just north of Hall, it is dangerous if not impossible to turn left from Marketplace Blvd as well as from Kingspointe Subdivision just north of Walmart. A light needs to be put up to break traffic for safe turning.

Ryan Rd / Martin - we need a trafficlight which shows Left turn only. It's almost not possible to turn into martin rd from ryan rd in rush hour

The turn around light here, and the one just west of Rochester Rd. on Long Lake Rd., do not need to be going most of the day. They only need to be going on weekdays maybe between 7:30am and 7:00pm. On weekends they do not need to be going at 8:00am, nor do they need to be going after around 6pm. These lights are unnecessarily impeding traffic on early and late times during the weekends, and in the evening on weekdays. They have made living along Long Lake absolutely miserable. Please feel free to call me at 248-709-7659 if you have any questions. We are so frustrated with these crazy lights we are considering moving out of Troy.

This intersection needs major work. Narrowing the travel lanes by reducing pedestrian crossing distances would be one of the most effective ways to permanently reduce speeds. The city could also consider raised intersections and roundabouts, as they have in other neighborhoods.

Cars don’t look like that when crashing at 25mph, which is what the posted speed limit is here and throughout New Haven. On neighborhood streets like Central and Willard, it arguably should be slower, more like 20mph. While the NHPD has done an excellent job of stepping up traffic enforcement in the neighborhood, enforcement will only get us so far. Similarly with education: it’s needed, but will have a very limited impact (no pun intended). The third “E” - Engineering - is where the city can really improve safety here. As Pedro suggests, this intersection is an excellent candidate for a small roundabout (not as big as on West Park, for which there’s no room here). Other alternatives would be bumping out the sidewalk at all four corners, thus narrowing the street and reducing crossing distances, raised crosswalks, and/or pedestrian refuges/planted medians leading into the intersection. The city needs to really study what the BEST solution would be here, and to consult with neighbors throughout. My concern with the idea of another traffic light is that cars would arguably speed more in order to make the light. The solution needs to SLOW PEOPLE DOWN, which would make this safer for cars, pedestrians, cyclists, and the kids who cross and wait here for the school bus every morning.
Thank goodness no one was seriously hurt yesterday and that no pedestrians or cyclists without 3000 pounds of steel to product them were in the intersection when this happened. A big thank you to the NHFD for a job well done and to the Independent for bringing attention to this sadly ongoing yet preventable issue.

- I live a few houses down on Willard, and that intersection is horrible. You have to pull out almost into the middle of Central to see past the street parking, and people fly up and down Central. It’s the only big intersection in the area without a 4 way stop.
- I was almost involved in a serious accident in high school right at this intersection. A guy in a Camaro was flying down central, and I pulled out from willard not seeing him (since he was so far down the street) and he slammed his brakes hard and just missed me. While I was the “cause” of him stopping, it was the fact that he was going about 60 down central that would have caused the accident.
- Central is a nice long straight run through Westville and people use it as a speedway to cross over New Haven all the time since it links Rt 34 to Whalley. The minimal cost of stop signs at all of the unsignaled intersections would greatly reduce the speeds on this street.
- Thank God no one was killed last night. That is without question one of THE WORST intersections in New Haven. Speed on Central Ave combined with poor visibility from Willard is a recipe for casualties.
