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.
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

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.

there is no parking allowed on caroline st between broadway and maple ave but the signs that say so are very confusing and people park there for hours holding up delivery's.
Saratoga Springs Library Saratoga Springs, NY
the handicapped designated parking at the end of that very long ramp is often filled with autos without the appropriate designations. Where are Saratoga police enforcing handicapped placards? In front, where is handicapped parking?

The left turn sign out of Adirondack Trust is completely and utterly unnecessary. If you wait for a minute, you can almost always find a wide enough gap to turn out of. This is an especially annoying thing if you need to head south after going to the bank.

The large dip in Petrified Sea Gardens Road is quite a dangerous spot. I have seen three major accidents in which an ambulance took one or more severely injured people. At the very least, would it be possible to put signs at the top of the hill? If you take this hill too fast, you run a strong risk of wiping out. It is very steep, and cannot see who is coming until you crest over the hill.

Crossing Lake Ave (Rt. 29) by East Side Rec. while in the crosswalk is dangerous. Vehicles rarely stop as they are required by law.
The crosswalk signs and flashing lights should include signs stating the law in words and be posted in the center of the road. The city does a poor job reminding drivers of this law. During heavy traffic pedestrians can wait a long time for traffic to stop in both directions.
What will it take someone getting hit and either injured or killed. I cross with children and vehicles don't stop. I have watched children waiting and vehicles don't stop.
