Vehicles (trucks & cars) speed after stopping. In 2012, and 2017 - I have had two PARKED cars on the building side of the street - 100 ft from the curb, hit by speeding drivers and totaled. My car has been a complete loss twice within 5 years in the same exact parking spot. Cars notoriously speed after stopping. They put the gas pedal to the max. I have had fellow neighbors and citizens -complain, tell cars to slow down. There is no signage of a school the the end of this block. There are two speed bumps in the middle but they do little to slow down traffic at the beginning of the street. In both accidents, two cars were totaled - which means 4 totaled cars in the same spot within 5 years. ---- Raise the Crosswalks - turn them into a raised crosswalk like over by St. Stan on Driggs Ave. It will slow traffic immensely and deter trucks. Also CURVE the sidewalk on the PARK side out into Monitor to mirror the other side. It will deter cars from making tight turns while speeding after stopping.

The 2 signs clearly indicate NO THRU TRUCK TRAFFIC. Trucks use Kent Street all day and all night long. Trucks turning off of Manhattan Ave to get to McGuiness. My windows rattle all night long from speeding trucks speeding up at night to beat the red light that is at the end of the street. When the trucks don't make the light, they come to a screeching halt. This has to be monitored. The construction noise is loud enough during the day.

Obviously the pictures here were taken years ago before the condo boom at 5AM. All of Manhattan Ave. is overly congested with cars, pedestrians & trucks that have to supply stores. Trucks now having to sit in the middle of the street so that bikes can have a lane! WHY in the middle of this congested shopping area?? Get the bikes off the Ave. so that cars do not have to go into oncoming traffic over the double yellow lines!!!! This whole bike thing is insane.

Traffic exiting the Williamsburg Bridge and turning left onto Broadway rarely yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk (traversing Broadway north/south) Since the reconstruction of this area we expected that this hazard would be addressed - unfortunately this has not been the case and the intersection is still a nightmare. A veritable pedestrian crap shoot. A delayed green would easily allow for pedestrians to cross safely without having to guess whether the traffic will yield to them in the crosswalk.

Vehicles routinely run the red light here, particularly during morning rush/school hours. Vehicles traveling north on Rodney/Meeker gun their engines, as do vehicles making the left turn from Metropolitan Ave to Meeker, because traffic backs up so bad they want to beat the oncoming light. Pedestrians crossing Meeker are thus subject to erratic and dangerous driver behavior and must dodge vehicles when pedestrians have the right of way.

This intersection is desperately in need of a signal. The heavy volumes of pedestrians that cross this intersection (even more so now with the addition of the Whole Foods and Apple stores) creates the need. Vehicles are often jockeying for position around pedestrians to either turn from N. 4th onto Bedford or cross Bedford.

They speed over the speed bumps and often do not stop at the intersection of Driggs and Monitor (by PS 110!!!!) They completely disregard the school zone signs. Could we get some flashing lights on the no trucks and school zone signs? I don't know what else can be done.

This is a major entrance route to the Kent Bike Lane (especially for those commuting across the Williamsburg Bridge heading north). There is no traffic control for the cars on Kent. I think there should be a light here.

No Crosswalk
No Crosswalk

This intersection of Maspeth and Woodpoint Rd. is heavily used by pedestrians. There is no crosswalk. The traffic on Woodpoint is heavy and two-way. Especially dangerous is cars using this right-turn lane and not seeing pedestrians about to cross. There is inadequate lighting, and at night, pedestrians are invisible. I've seen a man struck by a car here, even though he was in the crosswalk across Maspeth. You can see that sight lines are blocked by illegal parking on the sidewalk. With thousands more people living in new buildings east of this intersection, it's only a matter of time before someone is killed. The whole intersection needs redesigning.

Illegal truck traffic is constant on this two-way stretch of Maspeth Ave. (between Morgan and Woodpoint), which borders on Cooper Park. Better signage prohibiting trucks and perhaps a neck-down at the intersection of Morgan and Maspeth would deter trucks from using this illegal "shortcut."

Pedestrians are in danger when they attempt to cross, even in the crosswalk. At this intersection of two two-way streets, cars turn from three directions, often disregarding pedestrians in the crosswalk. Solution could be three-way stop signs and two additional crosswalks across Maspeth Ave.

This intersection needs a stop light and crosswalk to make it safer for bikers, pedestrians and motorists. Cars and pedestrians crossing Kent have low visibility - especially visibility of the bike lane. The river/pier area makes it a popular pedestrian area. Cyclists do not yield to pedestrians.

Please add a stop light + pedestrian crosswalk. The traffic on the intersection of Kent and N4th is problematic and dangerous. We have a ton of people coming to the area for the smorgasburg/flea market, etc who are not familiar with the miriad of vehicles, bikes, runners and what not on the streets. Not a week goes by without someone being nearly hit either by bikers or pedestrians. As a driver, it is very hard to cross Kent Ave if one is on N4th. Please add traffic lights. Thanks.

Brooklyn Bowl has determined that they "own" the parking in front of their building and constantly put orange cones in front to "reserve" parking. City permits anyone to park here and they are not allowed to reserve parking spots. They need to be instructed to stop and allow anyone who wants to park there.
