theLoop is still working on identifying dangerous areas for drivers, pedestrians and the general public. Our information is mainly crowdsourced.
Do not hesitate to contact us. We are still working on getting the attention of more public officials.
Kudos to The Loop! Years ago after contacting local officials about the problem with traffic going the wrong way up Alden Road, no action. A month after posting this problem (and it is getting MUCH worse) we had a new ONE WAY sign posted at BRP and the base of Alden. Thank you Loop!
Last week, a middle school student was hit by a car in the crosswalk on Hommocks Road (thankfully, no serious injury to the child). There was also a minor collision between a school bus and a garbage truck. No injuries thankfully. (note, garbage truck was pulling out and clipped the back of the bus, not bus drivers fault) The issue of traffic around town esp at school arrival and dismissal times needs to be kept in the headlines until more is done! If God forbid a situation calls for emergency vehicles to get near school grounds during those times, it just cant happen. BTW, really, shouldnt garbage collection be put on hold for the 30 minutes or so when kids are getting to school? Would parents be interested in a large scale carpooling effort? would there be any assistance available from town or other orgs to help organize and implement something like that?
