normally i’m happy when traffic slows down a bit, but why do the police ignore double parking on washington street? on sunday there were probably 3 cars double parked per block for the full length of the city. when Sinatra is closed, and washington carries double the amount of traffic, plus the visitors for the festival, why don’t the cops control the flow on Washington? is this too difficult a concept for the HPD? were they ALL at the festival for crowd control? is there any reason they DO NOT ticket for double parking on Washington? when the busses cannot pass, the traffic comes to a standstill.

I almost got ran over 3 times today.

Each time I was already in the crosswalk, and I had to stop since an oncoming car seemed to have little regard for stop signs or basic traffic laws.

The tall dude screaming his head off at a livery cab at Newark and River st.about 2pm, yeah that was me.

When are they gonna turn on that goddamned stoplight already?

Traffic in town today (Sunday) is ridiculously bad. Can’t wait until Maxwell Place is 100% filled along with the other new developments…should make for some fun times with all the new lows we’ll hit in gridlock, not to mention road rage. I know the question has been asked MILLIONS of times, but…is our local government really that oblivious to what’s going on with the traffic situation?
