2 Vosburgh Rd Mechanicville, NY 12118, USA - Halfmoon, NY
When going northbound on 146 and turning right into Sheldon hills, you are often tailgated and the car tailgating you often uses the advanced left turn lane as a passing lane to avoid slowing down for the car that must slow down to turn into sheldon hills. Furthermore, when making a left hand turn out of Sheldon hills, it is virtually impossible as cars use the dedicated left turn lane onto Vosburgh. I hope that it doesn't take a death to have a light installed. With the Sheldon Hills, Estates of Halfmoon and future Belmonte Builders home sites, traffic will only increase. Please help!!
246 Woodin Rd Clifton Park, NY 12065, USA - Halfmoon, NY
This intersection is bad from all sides- People have a hard time turning left from Sitterly onto Woodin because there's no turning lane or signal. People turning onto Sitterly from Woodin have to wait through several lights because traffic backs up at the light to the Crossings. This is very frustrating from all sides, because people turning left onto Sitterly will drive right through the yellow or even red light because only a few cars can turn left at a time (3-7, usually).
1395-1399 New Loudon Rd Clifton Park, NY 12065, USA - Halfmoon, NY
Going southbound on route 9 at the intersection with Crescent Road the road is three lanes wide. The far right lane that should be a right turn only lane permits drivers to continue straight over the bridge. Every morning, people use the far right line to speed by and avoid the intersection and then have to merge left after cross onto the bridge. There is not a morning that goes by where some driver does this and almost causes an accident. Drivers who stay in the left two lanes are forced to stop quickly when the drivers in the right lane try to merge.
1487 Rte 9 Clifton Park, NY 12065, USA - Halfmoon, NY
The intersections of Rt 9, 236, and Guideboard Road are in close proximity and form a triangle. There are 2 traffic signals in which ever way you have to go. Rarely do you make it through both signals. The signals should be eliminated (or simplified), and the roads between the 3 intersections should be made into a large round-a-bout (South on Rt 9, North on Rt 236, West on Guideboard).
10 Cemetery Rd Clifton Park, NY - Halfmoon, NY
The West side of Cemetery Rd along the cemetery is overgrown and you can not see approaching traffic from the side street. There is a day care drop off here, and over 100 cars use this entrance. It is terribly unsafe for the parents to not be able to see oncoming traffic. I'm not sure if one of those tractors with the side cutters that they use to do I-87 would be enough, or if you need guys with chainsaws as well to cut this back. I think this is Town of Halfmoon DPW that handles this, but maybe it is the owners of the cemetery. If someone who knows who to contact could pass the word along, it would be most appriciated.
91-95 Crossing Blvd Clifton Park, NY 12065, USA - Halfmoon, NY
There are 2 lanes East/Southbound, but neither lane has any marking regarding straight or turn only. Then after the right turn entrance to the Crossings Plaza, there is only one lane. There needs to be a right turn only lane marked, and a straight only lane marked.
102 County Road 99 Waterford, NY 12188, USA - Halfmoon, NY
The past few mornings the green light from Church Hill onto Rt 9 has been way too short and is causing major back-ups on Church Hill. This morning cars were backed up for 1/2 a mile and I ended up waiting through 3 light changes before were able to turn.
145 New York 146 new york, mechanicville, NY - Halfmoon, NY
Entrance to Sheldon Hills extremely dangerous, traffic light needed. This is a 10 lane intersection where drivers go too fast and tailgate cars turning into Sheldon Hills. The tailgaters never reduce speed plus use the left only lanes as a passing lane to go around the cars turning into Sheldon Hills. Numerous traffic violations, carnage nearby and only a small speed reduction. Impossible to exit left from Sheldon Hills during high volume times. With the growth in the area the speed reduction is nothing more that a band aid, a light is needed. This issue has been raised in the past, but a small speed reduction is not the best solution.
Farm To Market & Kinns Clifton Park, New York - Halfmoon, NY
The road sensor on route 9 coming south causes the green to cycle to yellow and red as soon as you hit it. There is not enough time to stop before going through it. There is no oncoming traffic from either Kinns or Farm to Market or Route 9 north to trigger this behavior. I tested it last night in the middle of the night, with no other traffic, and this is duplicatable. Does it every single time. Either programmed wrong or a board has an issue on the controller. Also, it would be good to have an electronic sign on both the north and south sides of Rt 9 about 1/4 of a mile from the intersection that tell you when the light is going to change, and that you will not be able to make it through the intersection before it changes. There are a lot of crashes here, and this would be a low cost safety improvement that would save lives.

I frequently travel through the Clifton Park/Halfmoon area during the evenings. Virtually each time I go through the intersection of routes 9 and 146, there are Saratoga County Sherrif's cars and other police cars sitting in the parking lot, conducting speed traps illegally on private property at the Firestone Auto Center.
This type of surveillance of the citizens is illegal and violates our civil rights.
While I am in favor of police officials conducting proper, legal patrols where necessary in order to promote safety on our highways, I am not in favor of allowing them to overstep their legal authority by usurping private property to accomplish this.
