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.
Veterans Way At The Cv Whitney Arterial Saratoga Springs, NY
I have waited thru complete signalization cycles, with every car getting an opportunity to pass thru this intersection, but not getting a "green light" when on my bicycle. I a trying to cross the Arterial (since bicycles are prohibited from it) to reach Gick Road, but unless a car pulls up behind me to activate the "green light" for Northbound traffic on Veterans Way.
222 Lake Ave Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, USA
Parking areas around the East Side Recreation Park designated "No Parking" are being ignored by park users and not being enforced by police. This results in a dangerous situation for traffic attempting to enter Lake Avenue as their line of sight of oncoming traffic is blocked by illegally parked cars.

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.

The street sign for Wall Street at the intersection of Route 29 is missing. Someone put up a word homemade sign years ago that is barely readable.

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.
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.
6 VotesFix it! Voted!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.
