    The same truck parks on the curb ,causing traffic to swerve around it, day in and day out. For some reason the truck is never ticketed. As a tax payer and recent home owner here it kills me to see that kind of stuff especially when it's a hinderence and hazard to so many daily drivers.

  • Harvard Street Medford, MA 02155, USA - Medford

    For years residents have pleaded the mayors office to address the overwhelming problems with traffic volume and commercial trucking on Harvard Street. To this day they have been unresponsive.

    I'd like to report the mayor's office as the overriding ClickFix issue. Please repair this break in the city infrastructure or make room for someone who will.

  • South St And Main St Medford, MA 02155 - Medford
    There is a traffic light installed at this intersection - but it desperately needs to be turned on! Right now it just blinks red. Very, very dangerous -- as well as long traffic backups.

    every road leading into the rotary is causing a problem. There are 2 cars entering the rotary from 3 different locations. The intersection is being blocked. It is a constant from 6:30 in the morning until 10:00 a.m. Something needs to be done.

  • Traffic Issue Acknowledged
    Canal St Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    In the heart of West Medford commuters blow through crosswalks every single day. If a pedestrian is unwilling to put yourself in harms way, the aggressive drivers trying to beat the traintracks will not stop for you. We need better signs placed in the center of the road, the lines repainted, and an occasional police officer enforcing what to me is the most basic sign of respect - letting pedestrians cross when they are standing in a crosswalk. Oh, and this is directly in front of a preschool to boot.

    It needs an overhaul it has turned into a dog park. Also what construction are they doing in that park?

  • Signage Archived
    198 High Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    there needs to be a rotary symbol sign on the island facing south down Winthrop. At night especially it is not easy for strangers to realize it is a rotary. It needs sign like the one on Main Street rotary in Winchester. Last night I was behind an out of state auto that made a left from Winthrop to High westbound without going around the rotary.

    Hi, this is a nice feature. Just wondering if Medford could install leading left green arrows at the intersection of Rte 60 and the Fellsway. This intersection is very dangerous, and I think green arrows for the traffic flowing on Rte 60 would be very helpful in reducing accidents and rush hour(s) traffic. Thanks so much.

  • Lane marking Archived
    Salem Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    Salem Street, from the chicken and rice guys location down to the traffic lights, there are no traffic lane markings whatsoever. On a dark rainy night, it's especially difficult to distinguish what lane you are in, if any.

    The presence of dogs and their owners is one of the few things keeping this park safer than it otherwise would be (especially at night).

    Here are some positive things that I've witnessed:

    -Dog owners are the closest thing we have to a neighborhood watch, especially now that it's getting darker earlier and the lighting in the park is VERY inadequate at night.

    -Dog owners keep the drug dealers from completely taking over the area.

    -Dog owners are the only ones who get together to clean the park of the dangerous broken glass, grocery carts, and other litter that is left behind.

    -I have never witnessed the small dogs that make the majority ever threaten small children and have only ever seen kids playing with the small dogs.

    Instead of focusing on removing a positive influence to Morrison Park, how about focusing on what is really wrong with area?

    -Last year there was a stabbing in Morrison Park.

    -Recently I saw a group of girls viciously beat another in plain daylight.

    -I have witnessed drug deals in the fenced-in play area. I've seen and smelled kids smoking marijuana there as well.

    -I've also seen the same activities occur behind the dugout of the baseball diamond.

    I believe that these persons are more of threat to children than small dogs.

    Oddly enough, it seems that these activities disburse when dogs and dog owners are nearby.

    I think the proper balance would be to add a gated-in area strictly for dogs to safely run off-leash. This way, people who are threatened by dogs would feel less threatened, and we would maintain the positive influence of dog owners in the area.
