There it’s an actual issue.

It's not the conflicting signage
June 18, 2024 6:00 pm

Pedestrians who have been crossing that service lane regularly are just not used to looking for a walk signal and are used to cars automatically stopping.
We need to train ourselves to start looking at and following the walk signal like we do for the rest of the Parkway and the other service lane.
In the long run having a walk signal there will be much safer.

Not quite

No one is used to cars ‘automatically stopping’.

The truth is...

Whenever anyone crosses the street, whether there is a stop sign or red light for oncoming traffic, one should ALWAYS look and not just assume the driver will stop at a red light or stop sign. I’ve seen dozens of times when drives blow stop signs or red lights. All you need is someone to walk into the intersection looking at their phone and assuming the driver has stopped……

Thank you Rabbi Yehoshua Lustig!

Nothing will happen

Nothing will happen until God forbid………

I’m not going to say the rest, but I’m Shure you’ll figure out the rest.

Oh.

What happened on 9/11?

And who reacted after the fact?

Just spray paint the STOP writing in black.

Or call 311 and report it.

Thanks for the PSA.

Btw, there’s also a traffic light on Nostrand and Lefferts (Not Mamash in the Shechuna) in which the pedestrian crossing signals are always red. I called 311 three times, and they said they’d look into it, but nothing changed.

Today, while walking down Kingston Avenue, I saw a kid dash away from his mother towards the busy traffic on Empire Boulevard. The mother screamed sooo loud. Everyone on the street stopped to look, and even the store owners peaked their heads out the door. As I’m feeling my stomach drop from the stress, I immediately turned around and buried my head near the tree as not to see what was about to unfold. Just as the child stepped into the street, the mother grabbed him, saving his life at the last second B”H. TYH! Just a reminder about street… Read more »

The police should have been called to put up a notice somehow to bring awareness
before the ny city will take care of it!!!

That crossing needed a traffic light...

Just get used to actually looking at the signal.
Instead of walking across the road assuming cars will stop.

Never assume

Even if you have the Green light, you should ALWAYS look to see if oncoming cars are actually stopping. TOO many crazy, entitled drivers around…

Something similar multiple times on Troy & EP

In that case traffic light not working on one side and cars not realizing and just plowing right through while pedestrians see the walk sign across the parkway and step into the street. It has happened so many times now AND LEFT THAT WAY FOR HOURS or maybe whole days that I can almost believe that this is no longer just negligence. The streets are teeming with psychos and addicts, homeless and migrant shelters all over the place right in our neighborhood, citibikes taking over parking, targeted ticketing, no consequences for the increasing crime on our community.. definitely a pattern.

This is part of a serious ongoing problem
June 19, 2024 1:05 am

Call it what you like but.. if this were anywhere else, a quick call to 311 would correct a dangerous situation like this on the same day. In CH, where for some reason we have no govt representation, this very simple fix will not be seen to without phone calls to congress.

If someone was a chevraman...

All you need to do is cover the old stop sign with a garbage bag. (perhaps someone from the school should do it mostly affects them)

Big deal out of nothing
June 19, 2024 1:34 am

A person should never start crossing a street if there’s a car driving regular speed never assume ever that the car for sure sees the red light. Especially if it’s only a stop sign. When they changed the stop sign to a red light on union and Kingston did that lead to accidents??

in the long run
June 19, 2024 10:18 am

this is an actual good improvement in the long run unlike some other ‘improvements’. but there should be signage to alert pedestriians of changes

thank you so much

Even if a car has a stop sign, you as a pedestrian always need to stop and check that the car is stopping before crossing. Always act as if they will blow through the stop sign, don’t just cross without checking, that’s just basic safety…
