573-599 Columbia St Latham, NY 12110, USA
A "LEFT TURN ONLY" sign should be installed hanging on the traffic light of Route 9R westbound in the LEFT TURN ONLY lane.
There only is a left turn arrow painted on the pavement in the left turn lane onto Johnson Rd., but many impatient drivers do not see it, and violently cut past, causing an extremely dangerous situation for people already in the right lane who want to merge left after properly clearing the intersection!
I've almost been rear-ended numerous times by drivers with road rage who are angry when driving behind slow drivers headed from Cohoes toward Latham on 9R!
Once they hit the traffic light onto Johnson Rd., they gun the gas pedal and careen into the left lane at breakneck speeds while trying to pass in the LEFT TURN ONLY lane!
Someone could be killed here!!
Rt. 9 & 9r Latham, NY 12110
There is a yield sign from Rt. 9 North turning right onto 9R heading to Cohoes. When coming off Alt. Rt 7 and crossing Rt. 9 straight on to 9R, cars should yield to my car so I can get in the lane I need to be in to turn right on to Old Loudon Rd. Same goes for turning left on to 9R from Rt. 9 coming south. 95% of the cars pull right through the yield sign, not even slowing down causing me to slam on my breaks and try to squeeze in so I can turn right on to Old Loudon Rd. Why doesn't anyone slow down or yield to traffic? What can be done to fix this?

So many drivers wanting to get on the Northway from Rt 7 drive past the slowed traffic and jut into the off ramp through the median between the ramp and the remaining part of Alt Rt 7. Put a barrier so these drivers get in line like the rest of us and stop causing accidents due to others having to stop quickly.

The Exit 4 ramp from Wolf Road onto Interstate 87 northbound should be a prime candidate for metered on-ramps when it is reconstructed in the next few years.
The number of cars violently accelerating to merge onto Interstate 87 northbound during the afternoon rush hour causes incredibly dangerous weaving/merging actions.
A metered on-ramp would also free up some of the backups of northbound traffic on the Interstate 87 mainline between Exits 5 and 8, especially around the notorious "Twin Bridges."
1-19 Sparrowbush Rd Latham, NY 12110, USA
When traveling eastbound on Sparrowbush Road, there is a yellow sign shaped like a "Y" at the junction of Pollock Road.
This sign is incorrect, because Sparrowbush Road continues on around the curve, and Pollock Road comes in as a SIDE ROAD.
This causes confusion for drivers on all parts of this intersection, because motorists driving westbound on Sparrowbush Road have the right-of-way and are not required to yield, yet many drivers do not know this and yield unexpectedly, and cause traffic to come to a grinding halt for no reason!
I have posted a picture of the proper sign which needs to be installed.
724 New Loudon Rd Latham, NY 12110, USA
This stretch of Route 9 in Latham needs better sidewalks. It is an area with many pedestrians, and with increased bus traffic in the area, there is likely to be even more pedestrians in the near future.
The dirty, gravel-filled strips along the road which are currently there are unacceptable for people to walk on safely.
This area also is in desparate need of better crosswalks and signaling, because motorists do not pay attention to people walking in this area.
29-39 Mill Road Latham, NY
Colonie Police are using private driveways for routine traffic patrolls along Mill Rd.
They are also doing this on numerous other roads and private parking lots in the Town of Colonie.
This is illegal, and violates private property rights.
It is also a violation of the right against illegal search and siezure.

Poor traffic control at intersection of Old Loudon Rd. and Watervliet-Shaker Rd. results in pile-ups on Watervliet-Shaker in both directions. Left turns from Watervliet-Shaker Rd. onto Old Loudon Rd. (and into Stewart's) should be prohibited.
