14 VotesFix it! Voted!Lawrence Road And West Chester Pike
UPDATE on problem: 11/11/12:
The problem has not improved.
The number of morning rush-hour drivers illegally staying in the left-turn only lanes on West Chester Pike at Lawrence Road and then suddenly switching across the solid white line into the right and left lanes of West Chester Pike in order to enter the northbound Blue Route entrance is a dangerous problem. Sometimes these drivers switch all the way from the left turning lane across all lanes of traffic to get onto the Blue Route going northbound right in the middle of the busy intersection there at the Blue Route entrance and Lawrence Road. Not only is this rude and inconsiderate, it causes danger for drivers in ALL lanes at this intersection, including those sitting and waiting to turn left onto Lawrence Road. These rule breakers think their convenience is more important than everyone else's physical safety, and you can see the results in the number of accidents that occur at this intersection. My car was totaled in the left-turn lane almost two years ago while I was sitting stopped in traffic because some idiot up ahead had come to a complete stop right in the middle of the left-turn only lane to try to switch over to the regular lanes. The person behind me rear-ended me because he didn't expect traffic to be stopped so far back in the turn lane. The solid white line that divides these two left turn lanes from the other lanes of West Chester Pike means that it is ILLEGAL to switch lanes there, people. Perhaps PennDOT needs to put up those yellow stick barriers between the two left turn lanes and the other West Chester Pike lanes leading up to this dangerous intersection in order to FORCE people to follow the rules of the road. Or if that can't be done, maybe they should raise the fines for doing this at this intersection and then enforce the rules by ticketing these dangerous drivers.

Please do away with the parking spaces at Walgreens on MacDade -where the cars come around bend from Sharon Hill to & make a R onto MacDade. When coming out of Walgreens lot you can't see around parked cars to see the speeding drivers who come around flying around that bend when you go to pull out onto MacDade to make a left toward Collingdale.

Unit block of E Chelton needs to get speed bumps installed because the people speed down our street with NO concern for our children. We have too many children on our block. Watch out, you may KILL ONE.

Drivers speed down Barren Rd and rarely stop at the stop signs. Very dangerous.

This is a residential area but many cars & trucks are travelling at high speeds and are unable to stop at the traffic light. They need to reduce the speed limit! Additionally, they should create a bypass from Rt 1 & 202 to Matlack St & 202. This is similar to what was done on Rt 30 and the number of traffic incidents (especially serious ones) has been drastically reduced.

There was a speed hump put in about 40 feet from the Stop sign at Malin and Barren Roads. Malin Road is a highly traveled secondary artery which acts as a border between Newtown and Radnor townships and extends into Broomall. It inconveniences law abiding citizens who follow the posted 25 MPH speed limit. I have witnessed vehicles drive over the hump going no more than 20 mph and damage was caused to the undersides of those vehicles. Heighten a police presence in the area and ticket speeders but don't inconvenience hard working tax payers with unwanted speed humps!
2519 E. Colonial Dr.
Larkin Rd. is 35 MPH and E. Colonial is 15MPH but the people traveling down to lower end of E. Colonial do 35 MPH on the 15 MPH street to avoid the Stop Sign on Conestoga at E. Colonial. Put one on E. Colonial at Conestoga and they will stay on Larkin ( and legally travel 35 MPH ) until they get to Conestoga.
