2) Stand outside the Stanley Theatre by JSQ and watch the JFK traffic light. EVERY SINGLE TIME, traffic goes through the red light- especially traffic making a south-bound left-hand turn onto Pavonia. Every. Single. Time.
THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY TRAFFIC ENGINEERING!!!
If there is no credible threat of enforcement there will be no compliance. JC drivers have no fear of being ticketed for ignoring traffic signals, stop signs or speeding.
I completely agree with you, which is why Safe Streets JC is pressuring the Mayor to implement consistent enforcement. He's put some in place and its helping. Its our goal to keep this going and get it expanded. (I think the title of this thread stresses that!).
We have a public meeting with the Mayor about this very issue - a commitment to improving enforcement - on Dec. 13. All are welcome, details soon.
