Need a Traffic Light at Henry Ford High II. For the safety of students some one should install a traffic light at this location before a major accident.
M-59 (Hall Road) Between Van Dyke And Mound Sterling Heights, MI - Sterling Heights
M-59 going eastbound speed drops from 70 mph to 55 mph then to 45 mph from Mound to Van Dyke.
The only warning is a diamond yellow sign reading "Reduced Speed Zone Ahead". There is no specification of what the new reduced speed will be. The speed limit drops to 55 mph. Then another "Reduced Speed Zone Ahead" and the speed limit drops to 45 mph.
In the "Old Days" a white rectangular sign would have read "Reduced Speed Ahead 55 mph" then another white rectangular sign "Reduced Speed Ahead 45 mph".
Why must we be kept in suspense until the new speed limit sign appears?
I'm now used to the situation, but I want the old white sign more informative put up.
I know this might decrease Utica and Sterling Heights speeding revenues, but knowing what the new speed limit will be should make a safer drive.

Railroad overpass allows no legal / safe method to cross over railroad tracks on 17 Mile Road between Mound Rd and Van Dyke. Please add a bike / walking lane with Jersey barrier type dividers to ensure safety of walkers / bike riders.

The asphalt on Canal at the intersection of Clinton River is very poor. The greatest impact seems to be for drivers turning from eastbound Canal Rd. onto southbound Clinton River Rd. This cobblestone-like surface is dangerous for braking and turning due to reduced handling and surface contact. This area is very busy with people turning in both directions during rush hour, and the ability to stop or turn properly is necessary for drivers' safety.
Ryan Road(13mile-16mile) Macomb, MI - Sterling Heights
this is insane! Bad enough Warren Con. Schools do not use the red flashers when dropping off kids but the people that speed around the bus(es) Law says to stop period yet many do not and yes there has been an accident on Ryan just north of Grissom school too! Thankfully no kids were involved. Morning or afternoon this goes on everyday!
Franklin Park And Ryan Road Sterling Heights, MI 48310, USA - Sterling Heights
Franklin Park light is too confusing to motoristw when flashing-most recent incident is as I was turning left (east) southbound onto Franklin Park with motorists waiting at the red flashing light-the motorist on Franklin park headed west, turning north proceeded in front of me as I was turning on the yellow light and didn't even stop-this light needs to return to a regular traffic light as the motorists in the area do not know what to do here-WAY too many incidents here-
34083-34471 Hayes Rd Fraser, MI 48026, USA - Sterling Heights
Hayes Road North of 12 Mile: 30 to 35 MPH speed limit for 3 miles then jumps to 45 MPH for 1.3 miles. High speeds and reckless driving far in excess of the 45 MPH occur on this section of tree lined road! You name it, it probably happens here. I personally have witnessed motorcycles with one wheel in the air, heard hot rods petal to the metal and regular folks having "fun" screaming out the window at high speeds. It is frightening to see the speeds down this road. I understand the driveway quantity and other factors used to calculate the speed limits would probably dictate a 45 MPH speed limit but jump in speed limit section of Hayes is very tempting to a wide range of drivers. Please help keep things safer along this section of road and remove the temptation. Please continue the 30 MPH limit for just 1.3 miles until the road ends. Please help.

This road is hazardous to walk on with the speeders in the morning and after 5:00. Police were called many times. When they do come, they sit in plain site and nobody of course speeds. We have had cars rolled over on neighbors lawns, in ditches and my son was almost hit a few years back. We have no sidewalks and I always worry about the children. We just had a neighbor move before their kids started school so they won't have to walk on the road. Other neighbor's cuss at the driver's and they of course continue speeding faster. When I called 911 to inform them someone lost control into the ditch, the 911 operator said they can't come out because it's not an emergency. We are now looking at moving from this city and locate to another city where the police work for the city and people who pay their wages. Keep in mind this is a gravel road.
