The last 5 miles of Avra Valley Rd in pima county is so terrible, that some of the workers have had to replace certain parts on theirs vehicles prior to the average repair date. As car parts are rather expensive along with the repairs it is very costly for the workers to maintain vehicle stability.
Some workers have commented that they have to get alignments every couple months to prevent vehicle breakdown. The road can be considered dangerous for drivers to drive down as there are many holes and uneven paches in the pavement.
Michigan's transportation infrastructure is crumbling due to the lack of proper funding. Michigan roads are consistently ranked as the worst in the nation. The gas tax has not been increased since 1997 (16 years).
Poor roads and bridges are reducing safety, damaging vehicles, and lowering on time deliveries due to congestion and delays. The cost to repair the roads increases substantially as they go from fair to poor.
If we do not increase the investment in our transportation infrastructure, it is estimated that the number of Michigan roads in poor condition will increase to 65% by 2018 (currently 32%).
Parow Valley in Cape Town's Northern suburbs is a residential area and situated next to Beaconvale, which is an industrial area. Riley street, which is the street linking to the industrial area and surrounds, has become a thoroughfare for motorists and truck drivers. Most are careless and reckless.
This is a suburban area, where kids play in the street. It should be separated from the industrial area in order to avoid such happenings.
Brisbane's inner city suburbs are being inundated with rat running motorists trying to escape peak hour congestion.
Residents are worried about safety and amenity on their local streets.
The Auwahi Windmill project began construction on a stretch of land in Kanai’o along Piilani Highway they removed all hills to help ease the pass of the large platforms in transportation to the projects main site.
In doing so, they have created a long smooth stretch of roadway; normally this would be a plus.
Speeding has became a huge issue and specifically in a school bus drop off zone which is a 15 mile an hour zone now the cars are flying through at speeds of 40 -50 and 60 MPH.
There have two recent collisions and one fatality in the last year as well as in 3 months two pregnant cows were hit and killed.
The removal of the hills are having a severe impact on the community’s safety. As well as the wild life and ranch in the area. We are petitioning the county to install TWO speed tables in the 15-mile an hour stretch at the school bus stops on each side of the main roadway reinstall speed limit signs all long the entire Piilani Highway as required.
Buttevant Main Street is on the N20 and a main artery between Cork & Limerick. The road is in total disrepair and has been marked as the worst primary road in Ireland.
As you drive your vehicle along this stretch of road your car just bounces along as every part of the surface is uneven.
The road is even higher than the pavement in places and you literally fall out of your vehicle onto the pavement.
Senior citizens have complained that they find it difficult to get off the bus or cross the road at some points.
The roads in our town are full of potholes and are tearing up our cars. They are also unsightly.
We have a ice town with good schools and wonderful neighbors.
Please make our town a place that looks as nice as it is.
Lambeth’s road casualty figures are some of the highest in the UK. Of all the 32 boroughs in London only Westminster and Barnet have more casualties on the roads. Lambeth has the second highest casualty rate in London for both pedestrians and cyclists. (See: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/Cycling/casualties-in-greater-london-2010.pdf ) A third of the worst spots for collisions involving cyclists in London, are found in Lambeth ( http://lambethgreennews.blogspot.com/2011/10/lambeth-and-southwark-account-for-half.html )
A study conducted at monitoring sites across the capital in 2009 showed roads in Lambeth were among those to exceed recommended levels of nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas that can cause health problems. Brixton Road, Christchurch Road in Tulse Hill, the Bondway Interchange in Vauxhall and Streatham High Road all had levels above the recommended limits.
20 mph speed limits have been proven by several studies to significantly reduce road accidents. They also encourage cycling and walking, reduce carbon emissions by helping the flow of traffic and improve air quality. Slower speeds also promote social inclusion and access to transport, particularly for those with mobility, vision and hearing impairments.
Already 7m residents in the UK live in towns which are adopting or have adopted this policy. It is time that Lambeth did too. (For more information see here: http://www.20splentyforus.org.uk/ )
Cemetery Road is the main bypass around the town centre linking the road that goes from Manchester to Doncaster - there is heavy traffic on it all day and "boy racers" use it like a speed circuit at night.
This is in a residential area. it's only a matter of time before there's a bad accident so I want to see speed bumps installed.
Islington’s first Green Councillor, Katie Dawson, successfully secured cross-party commitment for a 20 mph limit on all the borough’s residential streets.
Islington Green Party is now calling for this to be extended to the borough’s main roads too.
The benefits of 20 mph limits should not be confined to those who live on the quiet side roads. Many Islington residents live, shop, work and travel to school along our main roads.
Extending the limit would make it easier to cross the roads and encourage more people to visit local shops. The safety benefits are well established: if you are hit by a car at 35 mph your chance of survival is 50%. If you are hit by a car at 20 mph your chance of survival leaps to 97%.
Islington is a borough with very limited green space, so it is critical our streets are designed for people and not just as corridors for moving vehicles. 20 mph limits on our main roads would help achieve this by:
• reducing the risk and severity of collisions
• improving accessibility for older people
• making our streets more sociable
• improving health by reducing air pollution
• smoothing traffic flow by reducing bunching at junctions
• reducing noise by minimising acceleration and deceleration
Many residents, including drivers, have told us they’d welcome the benefits of a default 20 mph limit on our main roads. If you feel the same and want to see 20 mph limits on the A1201 (Blackstock Rd, Highbury Park and Highbury Grove), please sign our petition and send a strong message to Islington Council and Transport for London that Islington’s residents want and deserve roads that are safer, calmer and less polluted.
[When signing the petition, please note that it is optional to give your address & postcode. They will NOT be publicly displayed, but would add weight to the petition particularly with the council.]
Wire rope barriers are dangerous and expensive. Where they have been installed, motorcyclists colliding with them have suffered horrific injuries and death, often far worse than the consequences of the item the wire rope was protecting them from.
Recent studies have shown that they are also more expensive to maintain than their competitors. Various countries such as the Netherlands and Norway have banned their use so there is no reason why they continue to be used in the UK.
Please support this as it can help everyone and hurt no one. The cuts are due to the debts caused by the banks failing and they are hurting society in a very serious manner.
The banks failed in their own eyes and by their own standards. Yet we are bailing them out at great expense and harm to ourselves. Our social infrastructure and societys across the world are being harmed. It is not necessary. If we Drop The Debt no lives will be lost no one will die and no buildings will disappear.
These debts are just marks on a piece of paper, cyphers in a computer. The Banks dont have and never did have the money we are paying them, they cant loose what they never had. As we pay the debt we harm every school and hospital every social structure and every family and every job. No one is free of the harm. They did not have the money they are asking us to repay. So if they didn't have it, why are we paying it back?
No matter what wealth is, its in the people and their work, not the banks, but when these said banks bankrupt themselves, one way or another, we get to pay. Their wealth is our work. Now their "fictional" debts are paid with our real work and lives. Economics is not like physics or chemistry, it is not a science. It is invented and shaped only by humans. We can shape it any way we want. If the nature of our economics is hurting us then we can simply change the nature of those economics. We have that power.
Banks wont be damaged by Dropping The Debt because to the banks the wealth is virtual, it is flickers on a screen, not like a house or food or cars or anything real, produced by work. They will not loose anything they actually had. No houses will disappear, no schools will close, no roads will go un-fixed, Nothing real would be lost. So when the banks change society for the worse because they messed up we could simply Drop The Debt. Remember wealth is not created by the banks but by people, by our work. The banks only create debt.
Banks are a private business. They exist to, and do, make vast profits for themselves at our expense. If they mess up its nothing to do with us. We owe them no loyalty. We should not be hurting society to give them "back" money that they never actually had. We can change that. So I urge you to Drop The Debt.
We did it before with third world countries and it worked very well, no one died, and lives were improved across the globe. Lets do it again.
Please support this as it can help everyone and hurt no one.
Our Government has implemented a road toll policy which is quite frankly a rip off.
We are being charged an extra exorbitant amount to use roads which should be covered by the taxes we pay?
Parker street is the continuation of the Northern road and runs south to north from Maxwell street to Coreen avenue.
It has 3 lanes of traffic from Maxwell street to Copeland street and merges into 2 lanes at Gascoigne street.
The speed camera is situated 33.6m south of Gascoigne street and within the merging zone. This is creating a state of confusion and a traffic hazard as merging drivers are taking their eyes off the road to check their speed.
This situation is only further complicated during the 40 km/h school zone where drivers are also taking their eyes off the road to check for time as well.
For the above mentioned reasons we the undersigned deem this camera to be unlawful in it's current position.
In the Village of Bolingbrook, IL between Weber Road and Illinois Route 53, the far right (southern) East-bound lane of Boughton Road is splitting down the middle and has uneven (not level) pavement. In certain sections, there has been maintenance work and there are two rectangular man-hole covers approximately every 500 feet.
The patched pavement around these covers is rough and in places higher than a speed-bump, which can cause severe strain or damage to vehicle tires, struts, and shocks.
We feel that drivers aren't aware of the dangers of cylcists on the road. They don't want to over take properly, they get to close. They also beep some times for no reason. Please sign our petition to help cyclists on the road.
The residents of McKillop Drive and surrounding areas ask to keep McKillop Drive a no-through road by creating a cul-de-sac. Our families have come to enjoy the quietness and security that our street provides.
The plans from InSight Developments for the area (North of Despard Ave, between Craig St and Hwy 4A) calls for McKillop Dr to be a through road to the new development. The City of Parksville has set precedence by keeping other streets in the city no-through roads. A few examples of this are - Bass Ave., Kingsley St, Ermineskin Ave and McKinnon St.
Gosford City Council needs to do something about this.
The recent imposition of the draconian road restrictions (Double Yellow Lines) on the Pinner Road in front of all the small stores means almost certain destruction of some of the small stores, which will create a domino affect on the rest of the businesses and hence, the area will resemble a desolate wasteland not too dis-similar to the once prosperous North Harrow.
21. Legalize It
Legalization of marijuana should take place in the state of Florida reasons for this are many profits generated could help support education, roads and highways, and even help public funds for food stamps.
Statistics show 20% of all Americans smoke weed this shows there is money to be made the product could be taxed and sold where cigarettes are sold.
Facts show the following:
1. It is not addictive
2. It does not cause over dose
3. It is natural
4. Is much less harmful than ciggarettes
5.Has strong support
6. Many powerful and influential people in the U.S. have used it
7. It stave's off Alzheimer’s
8. Marijuana helps with: Stress Relief, Pain Relief, Meditation, Eating Disorders
9. Marijuana has been around since ancient times
10. Marijuana does NOT cause violent behavior
This should be plenty enough reasons to support my thoughts and I think many will agree.
In order to get a construction certificate for properties near the rail corridor, home owners in NSW currently need to get an acoustics assessment The Department of Planning applies this condition to all properties near the rail corridor regardless of the type of rail operating. In the "Development Near Rail Corridors and Busy Roads Interim Guidelines 2007", it is stated that ‘The impact from railway depends on a range of factors including train type.’(p14).
However, The Department of planning does not make any distinction between the different types of rail in practical application. Therefore an acoustic assessment is required by anyone who wants to develop a property located near rail regardless of the type of rail it is.
This requirement is excessive in the case of light rail as the noise generated by light rail is significantly less than other types of rail.
Shannock RI was a country town until a trucking company moved onto West Shannock Road. We would like an end to the trailer trucks coming down our Roads in Shannock. This company has ruined our town with all the noise coming from them (It appears to be some kind of gravel pit), the trucks coming down our roads all hours of the day and polluting our air with the exhaust coming from these trucks. The Zoning needs to be re-evaluated.
There are currently NO cat laws in Australia.
Cats a getting out of control.
They destroy our native wildlife, wander the streets, getting into garbage, Breed excessively, fight with other cats, males 'spray' in other people's yards to mark their territory from other cats, even if that person does not own a cat or dog. They run across people's roofs & fight.
They are also a danger to themselves, by running across roads, getting attacked by dogs, getting trapped in small confined spaces or up trees & power poles.
Irresponsible owners allow the cats to wander, fail to have them desexed & quite often own a large number of cats, well in excess of over 2 or 3 cats. When this occurs, the odor of cat urine on the property or neighbouring properties is disgusting & annoying, they fight in neighbours yards, kill birds & other small animals & become a nuisance to everyone.
Cats are not required to be licensed. There are no cat laws for a cat that is constantly noisy or meows a lot or if a cat is mistreated.
The animal laws in Australia are way out of date, far behind & need updating to include cats.
Thousands of cats become strays, are run over on busy roads or are put to sleep every day.
ONLY IF YOU LIVE IN AUSTRALIA, & you believe there should be laws for cats, then please sign this petition.
South Point Subdivision was established in the year of 2002 in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Every since its formation, the streets of the subdivision have been used by oversized trucks and vehicles resulting in the wear and tear of the streets. This problem is getting worse daily, and we propose to have South Point Subdivision's streets deemed as "NO TRUCK ROUTE" as per (Ord. No. 97-10, §§ 1--4, 7-10-97) Not only will this make the neighborhood a better place to live, without the fear of oversized vehicles racing down the roadway, but it will also save the Parish a substantial amount of money.
We are constantly contacting the Parish to come out and fix potholes created by these monstrous vehicles from driving up and down the road way of the subdivision, as a thru street for their personal gain. Being that the subdivision has no sidewalks built in it, it is just unsafe, and unsound to continue to allow the trucks not serving a purpose to travel the roads of South Point on a daily basis.
Sec. 10-11. No truck routes.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to operate a truck of a size of more than one (1) ton on any road/street where a sign has been erected specifying "NO TRUCK ROUTE" by the Parish of Livingston giving notice thereof and prohibiting such operation.
(b) The prohibitions contained in subsection (a) shall not apply to fire and emergency vehicles, commercial garbage, refuse or trash removal vehicles including waste removal vehicles, public and private utility vehicles (including electric, gas, telephone and cable television vehicles), nor shall it be applicable to any person driving a truck making a delivery or pickup of merchandise, goods or equipment in an area where it would be necessary for the vehicle to use the road/street in the ordinary course of business.
(c) "No truck routes" will be established by a majority vote of the Livingston Parish Council.
(d) Violation of this section shall constitute a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than five hundred dollars ($500.00) or a term of imprisonment of not more than thirty (30) days in the parish jail, or both.
(Ord. No. 97-10, §§ 1--4, 7-10-97)
I have seen elderly people almost back into other cars, drive too fast, drive too slow, change lanes without checking mirrors and drive onto the shoulder too many times. Some of them shouldn't be driving because they have health issues or they need glasses.
I want our nation's elderly people to drive safe, So I propose that once any person turns 65 they have to retake their driven portion of their exam every 2 years until they turn 75. Once a person turns 75 they have to take the driven portion of the test every year.
The elderly over 70 and the teenagers under 20 have the highest rate of accidents per mile. Let's make our roads safer!
This petition is for the legalization of mini-bikes, off-road trail bikes, mini-cycles, and electric scooters on public roads in the state of Michigan.
On October 21, 2008, at around 3:16 AM, an eye doctor (whose name was Francisco Sarabia) was killed and three other persons were injured in a road accident along Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA). The optometrist and his passenger were about to exit their Mercedes-Benz (plate number NFH-602) when a Joanna Jesh bus (plate number TYG-660) collided with that car.
This petition is dedicated in memoriam to Francisco Sarabia.
I hope that me and my countrymen would be showing concern for traffic safety.
Since many customers are not able to enter the BP Gas station, on E Van Fleet Drive, (Bartow), our company is loosing a lot of business.
The reason for this business loss is that there is no entrance for drivers traveling from SR 60 West through E Van Fleet Drive, to enter the convenient store/gas station. If there was a left turn opening on the road to the store, then the store will recieve customers coming from both sides of the road, thus increasing our business. Please consider this petition.
Our store location is:
BP Gas Station
1140 E van Fleet Dr
Bartow, FL 33830
In my opinion the Government made a good decision when they increased fuel prices. It's obviously something that's going to make people think twice before they turn they set off in a car.
What the Government has failed to do, however, is provide an affordable alternative means of transport.
