All Streets Saratoga Springs NY, USA
Why is it that Saratoga Springs still forces its residents to move their cars to the other side of the road on Holiday mornings? It would be so nice of the city to suspend alternate street parking for those few days during the winter months? Many other cities do this Saratoga, time to get with the program.

Regent Street between Lincoln Avenue and Union Avenue has increasingly become a busy shortcut for speeding drivers looking to avoid Broadway traffic on their route between South Broadway and Union Avenue (and other parts north, and vice versa).
On these two blocks of Regent Street, there is a busy church with daily soup kitchen and daycare/playground, the Beagle School preschool, the Waldorf School, and Empire State College (so, lots of children, and pedestrians in general, along with parked cars).
Cars speeding through these busy blocks are often accelerating, and traveling at dangerous speeds without regard for area residents. Just today, a driver (maroon pickup) was witnessed on this stretch, intentionally speeding up and swerving to hit and kill a crow in the road. Who or what is next?
Thankfully, a four-way stop was installed at Regent Street/Park Place a few years ago, making that very accident-prone intersection a bit safer. But this "wide" section of Regent Street remains a dragstrip. Help!
Caroline Off Of Broadway
The right hand side of Caroline street reads "No Standing" while the left hand side says "No Parking". There are no other streets with "No Standing", but what "No Standing actually means is "No Parking" or loading, etc. This is inconsistent with the entire rest of downtown and the city should add a "No Parking" sign to clarify because many visitors to our city are not going to be familiar with this sign and could easily misunderstand this to be a reference to loitering.

The City's current Ballston Avenue project (limits = Lincoln Ave to Hamilton Street) calls for dead-ending Union Street on the south side of Ballstion Ave. Emphasis has been on the two other, more major intersections - including the announcement for the public meeting last fall which did not mention proposed changes here. There is no option to keep Union Street open in both directions. There has been no trafffic diversion analysis completed to determine where traffic currently using Union Street would go. This change would increase traffic volumes at other nearby intersections where existing accident problems are much worse. While I hope it's not the case it certainly appears someone is trying to 'slip in' this change when no one is looking. I'm afraid most people would have no idea this was being planned until one day they find they can no longer travel up/down Union Street.

When is the city going to wake up and understand the need for a sidewalk or running/bike path along Grand Ave Extension? This has been addressed on many posts but doesn't seem to get any attention or response?
Saratoga Springs NY, USA
This is a very dangerous intersection where I have almost gotten into numerous accidents and seen almost twice as many close calls second-hand. There should be a traffic signal similar to the one at Railroad Place/Federal St. and Washington St. This would create a semi-typical four way intersection and greatly reduce the chances of accidents.

Traffic gets heavy and people trying to make left out of Crescent St onto Route 9 get frustrated with long waits. Have this month saw two close calls when drivers "made a run for it."
Washington Ave. And Pine Rd Saratoga Springs, NY
This intersection is becoming more and more dangerous. The speed limit from either direction is 45 MPH and frequently cars ignore the signal change to red and simply fly through the intersection. It is becoming more frequent that it is not even people trying to beat the yellow light and missing but people even back a distance are simply not slowing down or stopping. There is going to be a major accident if something is not done as cross traffic cannot predict someone going through the red light even after several moments have passed. I think the speed limit needs to be dropped to 30 MPH prior to the intersection to encourage compliance.
