Commuters speed through this residential area to avoid Broadway traffic. A stop sign would make it safer for children who live and play in the area.
7 VotesFix it! Voted!Interesection Of Woodlawn And Church Streets
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.
20 Locust Grove Road
Currentyly the posted speed limit is 40 miles per hour and 45 miles per hour on Locust Grove Road and Denton Road, respectively. This is a country residential and recreational neightorhood, where there are no sidewalks or usable shoulders. There are many walkers, joggers and bicyclists that use this area for recreation and they are required to use these roads. In addition, the Skidmore baseball field and Saratoga Polo Field are recreational venues located on Denton Road, where many pedestrians congregate.
The increased number of traffic lights within the City of Saratoga Springs have encouraged motorists to change their travel route to take this neighborhood of back roads to avoid the congestion within the city. The block encompassing the area accessed by Locust Grove Road, Denton Road, Bloomfield Road and Daniels Road has become a major traffic thoroughfare. In addition, the driveway for the Stewart's Ice Cream Plant , located at the intersection of Locust Grove Road and Denton Road is in use for the ingress and egress of their employees and service vehicles to access the plant. This has created an industrial influence to the residential zoned neighborhood, which is adding to the current traffic condition.
This block of concern is a country residential zoned neighborhood, where the roads were not designed to handle the current flow of traffic and at the current posted speed limits, creating a very dangerous situation for pedestrians, residents and motorists.
A reduction of the speed limit from 40 and 45 miles per hour to 30 miles per hour with the addition of a four way stop sign at the intersection of Locust Grove Road and Denton Road is needed.

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.
69 Ash St Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
A stop sign is needed at the corner of Ash and Elm. The parked cars make it very difficult to see if there is oncoming traffic on Ash before proceeding accross the intersection. Ash is the only one way street intersecting Elm without a stop sign.
Union Ave & Interstate 87 Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
The exit ramp from I 87 and 9P has TWO stop signs..... On a daily basis I see cars barely stopping at the double stop signs.and driving right out onto 9P . Maybe some kind of ripple strips from where the exit splits to the double stop signs may help drivers be more alert about stopping.

The crosswalk/pedestrian signs at the intersection of West Avenue and Washington Street(Route 29) were installed without ever being checked for proper function.
For years, since new and originally installed, these crosswalks do not change for pedestrians when traffic conditions allow.
The signs always read DO NOT CROSS.
Merging traffic sees pedestrians crossing against a red 'do not cross' sign and do not offer the people using the crisswalk the right-of-way.
This is a constant danger for crosswalk activity and motor vehicle operators.Confusion abounds.There are plenty of horns and cars driving with people in the middle of the intersection, crossing the road and knowing that they are going to be annoying another driver/motor vehicle operator and are going to be in unnecessary danger because someone never checked the basic operating function of these signs when they were originally installed.

Cars come speeding up Maple Avenue, rounding a blind corner at Catherine Street. Lots of kids in the neighborhood. Very dangerous intersection with nothing to control traffic on Maple
178 Circular Street At York Avenue Saratoga Springs, NY
This intersection is so dangers. North of York Avenue, Circular heads down a hill. So pedestrians trying to cross here, as well as cars coming from McTygue and York Ave, have a very difficult time seeing oncoming traffic. (Parked cars contribute to the difficulty also.)
This block has so many pedestrians - children and parents walking to and from one of the two elementary schools and playgrounds as well as bus stops within 3 blocks, and pedestrians of all ages going to and from downtown and to the nearby Farmer's Market.
There are numerous lights along the main part of Circular Street. North of Lake, there is an extremely long stretch without any lights or stop signs. A stop sign at York Ave would ease traffic dangers, and provide a safe place to cross for pedestrians.
By the way, there are dozens of children that live within a few blocks of this intersection. This has been reported to the commissioner of safety. They proposed having a patrol car look for speeders. However, speeding isn't the issue. It's the difficulty crossing safely, even with cars that are obeying the speed limit. Nothing has been done, unfortunately.
