Troy Police need to attend an event at the new stadium behind the Field House. The PA system can be heard clearly more than a half mile away. If a vehicle with a too loud stereo or a motorcycle with a loud exhaust can be ticketed, why not the RPI administration. TURN IT DOWN!

Ingalls Ave And Oakwood Ave Troy, NY - Frear Park
This is an ongoing problem for the residents of Oakwood Ave hill. There are no fewer than 3 local comapnies that use Oakwood Ave on a daily basis for coming into and out of the city.
I will say that the majority of the heavy trucks that use Oakwood Ave are law abiding but there are a many who are not. The trucks that have "non-seviceable" (AKA-gutted exhausts) are the problem.
They seem to enjoy making us much noise as possible as the engine brake down Oakwood Ave. over and over and over. If it was just once or twice a day it wouldn't be an issue but it is repeated almost hourly and even into the night and morning hours.
The city of Troy has noise ordinances to combat these inconsiderate companies but unless the ordinances are enforced, they are all but useless.
I've said this before and I will say it again... we need the police to come to Oakwood Ave and write tickets to the trucks that are daily breaking the noise laws.
Please don't think you can come just once with your decible meters and decide there isn't a problem. You have to come stealthily and often just like catching speeders.
If the Troy Police want to make a small fortune in fines and help the quality of life issues of a neighborhood in the proces, come to Oakwood ave and set up your decible meter. Don't do it in the open though. The truckers will just refrain from using thei jake brakes until you leave. This happened last time you came.
We need signs like this.
14 Oakwood Ave Troy, NY - Troy
There is a sunken utility access in the center of Oakwood Ave, right in front of Sausse Ave and 14 Oakwood Ave. Being a truck route many trucks hit this sunken hole and it makes a god awful loud noise and shakes nearby houses.
Please DPW come fix this ASAP.
1 House Ave Troy, NY - Troy
A land owner has had a ridicules idea to try and put up a 74 unit senior complex first off there is no space for it and every time you drive down 9th street already only 1 car can fit at a time now, everyone is already always having to pull over to one side or the other to let the car pass and the proposed area doesn't have enough parking for all residents imagine another 100 cars a day along with ambulances and fire trucks and garbage trucks maintenance trucks staff? lol this road can't support 2 more houses let alone 74 units and what an eyesore to the peoples back yard on house ave and 9th instead of relaxing in their back yard and front porches watching the sunset and enjoys there yard all they would have is a huge eyesore looking at them with 150 windows of people staring at them and extra noise and light wow will this kill the neighborhood and kill property values in this nice area this is a residential area not a community commercial area or even a high rise area the zoning is all wrong belongs in the country like all the others being built or down in the river area like where its zoned for not in a nice small community area with no space or streets for it. Half the time you can't even tell if a car is coming on 9th when you are coming down house this is just a ridicules idea and should never even been considered road, zone, land area and neighborhood can't have this!!! there is a meeting to voice your opposition at this bad proposal it is at the Troy City Hall at 1776 Sixth Ave second floor conference room "A" at 6:00PM Tuesday December, 6 , 2011
2431 21st St Troy, NY 12180, USA - Frear Park
The city of Troy has a problem with installing unnecessary stop signs. This intersection is another example of wasted taxpayer money as well as increased noise from stopping traffic, increased pollution from the stop & go, and is in violation of the MUTCD (http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/),
which discourages the use of stop signs as traffic calming device. Traffic signs actually make streets more dangerous for motorists and pedestrians.
