Over the past few months, we’ve had an increased volume and variety of conversations about the streets of Summit – traffic calming, parking enforcement, signage, and resident parking permits. Some of these (traffic calming Phase I) are done deals, and some (parking permits, further traffic calming) are long term discussions. But parking signage and enforcement are every day issues.
Several neighbors have reported problems with close-to-corner parking. Some folks have gotten tickets for parking too close to a corner, though it was not signposted. Others have complained that negotiating turns into and out of our side streets is difficult and dangerous due to vehicles parked right at the corner. Recently, a neighbor got into an accident due to an illegally parked vehicle “cramping a corner”.
What corner hotspots do you know? What isn’t signposted or curb painted, but should be? Where do accidents or near misses happen? Comment on this post and lets see whether we have a big enough problem to take up with the powers-that-be.
