I live on Thompson St for many years I have complained to the city to put up a speed bump here I was told it can't be done on city streets. Hardly anyone stops for this sign Parents in a hurry to get their children to the ball fields (GEER FIELD) blow though it Cars taking the short cut to avoid mill st and NOW even the ice cream truck doesn't even stop anymore and she attracts children and still blows through the signage I asked her to stop and NOPE I NO GIVE YOUR KIDS ICE CREAM YOU YELL AT ME stop means stop REALLY there not my kids but thanks for thinking im young enough to have children that young They are the children in my neighborhood and the blind corner doesn't have stop sign I've been here long enough to see lots of accidents BUT no deaths yet of children But back to my original thought I drove over WalkerA ve by Spring Little league to see they have a speed bump and they put speed bumps up on Sherman Ave when they detoured traffic ARE THE CHILDREN of LESSER VALUE ON THOMPSON STREET THAT WE DON'T GET CONSIDERATION FOR A SPEED BUMP OR DOES A CHILD HAVE TO DIE FIRST What to do now at a loss Thanks
Thanks! Thanked!7 Morrison Ave Troy, NY 12180, USA
Vehicles turning left onto Morrison from High Street are in a bad situation if they miss the left arrow at the beginning of the cycle. They enter the intersection, but during high traffic times, will never get a chance to turn before Morrison gets the green light (meanwhile, Northbound High Street traffic turning onto Morrison has a green arrow the whole time). This signal needs to be re-evaluated.
Not to mention this whole intersection is a pedestrian death-trap.

Speeding and failure to yield to pedestrians make it near impossible to cross River Street to get to parking lot of Hedley Building. With or without the warning sign in the middle of the cross walk - hardly anyone actually stops and those who do risk getting rear ended by the speeders and others not paying attention.· Reported by Hedley Building - crossing to parking lot is VERY dangerous (Guest) · Share · Flag Flagged

When heading east on Rt 7 (Hoosick St) and wanting to make a left turn (to go north) onto 15th Street - the green left turn arrow/signal only stays lit for exactly 11 seconds! This means that unless you are one of the first 3 cars in-line - you are NOT able to make the left turn as the traffic coming down Hoosick prevents you from turning left onto 15th St. You thereby hold up a ton of cars behind you who want to head up Hoosick Street. This often causes a back-up all the way to the Hoosick St bridge if it's rush hour (between 4pm and 6 pm). This green arrow should be green for at least 20 seconds and not 11 seconds.

When traveling in a southerly direction on River Street, you are not allowed to make a turn to go East onto Federal Street. This was designed initially to have travelers go into downtown. The days of downtown shopping are practically over yet the traveling up the hill is still denied. Open your eyes, this is the 21st. century.I

The corner of 10th Street and Hoosick Street going west, there should be a "no right turn on red" sign. Vehicles are forever pulling out into the driving lane in order to take a right on red. This has the potential for a very serious accident. I have complained about this situation before, but evidently no one from the traffic dept reads these comments. It would be advisable for them to occasionally pay attention to the citizens using the roads as they are the ones to spot these problems.

There are no speed limit signs on Oakwood Ave.
If you're traveling on Oakwood ave torward hoosick street... the first and only speed limit sign is way up on Oakwood ave BEFORE Oakwood cemetery! At that's a temporary sign built out of 2x4's.
By the time drivers get to middleburgh ave and the long HILL, they've forgotten what the speed limit is. I regularly see drivers exceeding the 30mph limit by 10-20mph.
I'm sure it'll take a pedestrian or a child to get killed before the city puts proper speed limit signs on Oakwood ave.
The attached picture is just west of middleburgh ave in the area where there are no speed limit signs. If you live in the area of travel through oftne, you recognize these homes.

People constantly treat this old cemetery as a dog park. They let their dogs off leash to run and many if not most do not pick up after their dogs. I know for a fact that folks drive in from Brunswick and Wynantskill, park on graves and let their dogs run. Can we please get some signs and start issuing tickets for these offenses!?
7-15 Congress Street Troy, New York
A lot of drivers seem to think that they can take a "left on red" from Congress to River St. A sign should be placed by the signal, and perhaps traffic enforcement should spend a few shifts at this intersection.
