Thanks! Thanked!Plaza De Oro Santa Fe, NM
It's been a year since I complained, in this forum, about the large chamisa bushes in front of Quick Lane on Alameda and Plaza De Oro which need to be cut. As I sit in my car on Plaza De Oro, trying to get on to Alameda, it's difficult to see the oncoming traffic coming from the east on Alameda.
They were cut down once, towards the Plaza De Oro side, within that year which does help and I'm appreciative. However, it is still difficult to get a completeley clear unobstructed view. ALL the chamisa bushes need to be cut so as not to obstruct our vision to oncoming traffic from the St. Francis intersection.
Cerillos/St. Francis Intersection
The reason why everyone is confused about where to stop their cars in this intersection is simple!
You stop your car where the red light is! When the city moved back the stopping area because of the Railrunner, they never moved the red lights! They are way out in the middle of the intersection, far from where the signs say to stop.
When I see a light turn red, I stop at the light. But here, you have to stop a full 50-60 feet BEFORE the light! No wonder people are confused.
City of Santa Fe: Please FINISH the job of updating tis intersection and MOVE THE LIGHTS TO WHERE YOU WANT THE CARS TO STOP! Then you won't even need all those extra signs and painted white stripes.
2724-2754 Cerrillos Rd Santa Fe, NM 87507, USA
Drivers who are too impatient to wait for the light to change during peak morning drive time (7:45 a.m.--8:10 a.m.) are cutting through the customer parking at Pep Boys on Cerrillos Road. They enter on Cerrillos and exit on Camino Carlos Rey, and cut off traffic turning left and right onto Camino Carlos Rey. These drivers go to the parking lots at the library or to the high schools nearby. They do not appear to be residents.
Lots of near misses, especially in the rain and snow!
Santa Fe Prep
Students from Santa Fe Prep who drive their cars to school park in a leased parking lot at the Carmelite Sanctuary. Often the students cross the pedestrian crossing in a random order, sometimes a few students at a time but most often a string of single student spread out over a distance cross. Sometimes a drive will wait 30 seconds or more for a string of students to cross and causing traffic to back up past Old Santa Fe Trail. Sometimes a police officer is parked at the cross walk keeping drivers in check, but since the traffic is backed up no one moves beyond the speed limit. I seems to me that he/she could make a judgment call and hold the students back a few seconds in order to keep traffic flowing, the stop traffic and allowing 5 or more student to cross. Regulating pedestrian and auto traffic here is needed and could be done by the school or the police. It would take just 15 minutes or less to solve this problem. Otherwise the traffic will continue to back up on OSFT.

The intersection of Buena Vista and Don Cubero is an accident waiting to happen. It needs the attention of the city engineer. The single stop sign located there was put in before Don Cubero was extended as a dirt road on the other side of Buena Vista. Cars take that corner at top speed without realizing the intersecting traffic doesn't have a stop sign. In winter, it's especially dangerous due to a depression that collects water and ice. There's no way to stop then. Please reevaluate signage at this corner.
810 East Zia Road Santa Fe, NM 87505, USA
For years we have corresponded with our councilors, the mayor, police dept, and city offices regarding speeding and overweight through-truck traffic on E Zia Rd, to basically no avail. The speeding continues through the blind curves near Acoma & E Zia intersection unabated. There is very rarely to never, speed limit enforcement between Acoma and Old Santa Fe Trail. E Zia has continuously been denied any form “traffic calming” through almost any excuse one can imagine while new instances of same have appeared on every type of street and throughout the city in other neighborhoods too numerous to mention! Each end of E Zia Rd (Old Pecos Trail & Old Santa Fe Trail) exhibits signs specifically prohibiting through-truck traffic of vehicles over 5 tons, yet every day there is a continuous parade of such vehicles accessing business and construction sites nowhere even near within this neighborhood. It’s well and truly past time for some type of action on these dangerous and quality of life issues for this RESIDENTIAL neighborhood.!
1227 S St Francis Dr Santa Fe, NM 87505, USA
There is a huge pothole in the right traffic lane, northbound on St. Francis Drive. Roughly halfway between Columbia Street and Alta Vista Street. The pothole is so large it could cause considerable damage to a vehicle.
700-708 Paseo De Peralta Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA
Too many cars cutting down Hillside as they can not turn left on Palace. Hillside is not made for this much traffic!! PEOPLE ARE DRIVING TOO FAST AS WELL.
Paseo Del Sol W Santa Fe, NM
Plant growth by the roundabout at Mesa del Oro and Paseo del Sol W obstruct the view of traffic traveling on Paseo del Sol W when attempting to enter the roundabout from Mesa del Oro. This is a problem when looking north due to plants along the west side of Paseo del Sol W as well as shrubs in the median when looking south. Since traffic on Paseo del Sol West does not have a stop or yield sign and most people speed through this intersection, this makes for very dangerous conditions. I would suggest some plant removal first, and converting this intersection to a 4-way stop.
