11 VotesFix it! Voted!Corner Of Washington And Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY
The illegal traffic of oversized 53-foot Special Dimension Vehicles (SDV) tractor-trailers continues hourly through the downtown and at the Washington St & Broadway intersection. These rigs are not sanctioned for our downtown and anyone standing on that corner or sitting in Starbucks can watch trucks climbing the sidewalk making their way up Washington. A few years back, the city dropped the curbs and prohibited parking at this corner, benefiting the trucks over the pedestrians. It's time to put the trucks back on their DOT designated routes. Anyone seeing the numbers 53 on a trailer in town is watching an illegal truck. If PS started occasionally checking manifests (for through trucking of all trucks) and watching out for the big 53 SDV, much of this traffic would fade by way of the truckers’ grapevine.

Crossing Church St. at the Woodlawn crosswalks is hazardous for pedestrians. It is still state law for motorists to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks yet this rarely happens in this (or any) location. Many communities have plastic signs in the middle of the road at such spots to remind motorists who has the right of way. This is a problem that will get worse.

There should be a left-turn signal to turn onto Henning from Union when traveling east. More often than not, I'll sit through a few cycles of light changes because oncoming traffic doesn't allow for left turns and the person next in line to turn has to wait for the light to turn red before they can turn safely.

The intersection of Meadowbrook, Union, and Gilbert is rather dangerous. A traffic signal should be added at this intersection as I, and many others, often spend over 5 minutes sitting on Gilbert or Meadowbrook waiting to turn onto Union (9P). Please fix this.
Saratoga Springs NY, USA
When heading west on Union Ave. I constantly find myself stuck behind people attempting to make a left turn onto Nelson Ave. from Union. There should be a turn signal added to this light so when people are trying to turn left, they can go right away, and not have to wait for heavy traffic from town eastbound to all pass by. This would increase traffic flow and be a smart solution to an annoying problem
458 Union Ave Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
This intersection can be a zoo and certainly a major accident waiting to happen. People entering from Meadowbrook regularly ignore the stop sign. People waiting to cross 9P get frustrated waiting and cross dangerously and people going toward Saratoga Lake, who pull right get passed in the short double -line area by nuts who are breaking the speed limit. The problem is bad all year round but especially back during the racing and summer season. Please, please, please looking this before there is a serious accident. The problem is getting worse almost be the day.
Meadowbrook Estates Saratoga Springs NY
For a long time now the residents of Meadowbrook have seen less and less street signs at intersections in this neighborhood. People have been repeatedly stealing street signs and it is unacceptable because visitors etc. don't know where they're going. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we should have these replaced! Please get on this!

This intersection should have a traffic signal tied to the existing traffic signal or the Gilbert Road should be diverted to the oppsite side of the Stewart's shop so creates a
standard 4 way intersection with a single traffic light.
