13 VotesFix it! Voted!North Tryon Street Between Eastway And University City Blvd Charlotte, NC
More and more housing is going up in neighborhoods between Eastway Drive and University City Blvd (NC49) that feed onto N. Tryon (NC29/49). Pedestrians with a LONG walk to a traffic light, and cars turning left into streets with no lights are having to dart across traffic at all hours.
How many fatalities and how many vehicle crashes does it take to make a change?

In the morning students headed to the Charter School (Crossroads Charter?) stop off at the Dunkin Donuts store.
They dart across North Tryon to head to school in front of traffic. There is no cross walk within 3 blocks of the school. This is VERY DANGEROUS. They could cross at the light at Old Concord and N. Tryon, but instead they cross in front of traffic.

A young lady was killed while attempting to cross the street at Garinger High School earlier this year. A crosswalk was placed at Ardrey Kell HS, but none has been placed at Garinger. What more does it take to actually see some action with school returning in just a few weeks?

Can we have some posted signs in this area that say "No Jay Walking in the Middle of the Road. I can't tell you how many times I see a mom running thru the traffic carrying their baby hoping a car doesn't hit them.
There are two crosswalks with walking lights on both sides of this area. No one uses the crosswalks.
Oh, and this would have to be enforced by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police or the signs would mean nothing.

On Freeland Ln. the railroad crossing gate (for the Lynx) comes down in the middle of the crosswalk. This is dangerous for both pedestrians and for cyclists. Either the gate needs to be moved behind the crosswalk or the crosswalk needs to move west of the gate.
Mckee Road At Weddington Road Charlotte, NC
All Summer long this cross-walk has not been working- it ONLY works to cross Weddington Rd, but does NOT work to cross McKee Rd. - This is a crying shame; 2 large subdivisions full of kids and some elderly folks who live on the opposite side of McKee Rd have had to dodge traffic to access the Siskey YMCA . Virtually every store are all located on the OPPOSITE side of McKee Rd and need this light working- My adult daughter crossing this road was verbally chastised by a motorist wanting to make a right-on-red and he honked his horn, pointed at the light in anger at her. She shouted back at him, "It's NOT WORKING!" and finished crossing. Aren't any parents aware of this situation?? 6 people clicked on this the last time this issue was reported but nothing was done! YOUR YOUNG KIDS ARE CROSSING THIS ROAD!

Most of the residents on the street have reported this mess over the last couple weeks.There is some nasty smelling water leaking out of cracks in the street where the city had already done repairs. Not to mention the repairs spots are sinking ! The problem is located directly in front of two driveways. The smelly water drains straight into Little Sugar Creek. HELP PLEASE !!

Talking crosswalk on SE corner of intersection does not talk - endangering visually impaired employees and visitors in the area.
