OK, I don't have any reason to walk or drive that block of Pavonia often, but I would have sworn on a stack of bibles there was a stop sign on Pavonia, as there should be. Did someone steal it?

Uncontrolled intersections are pretty rare around here, the one that blows my mind is getting from rt 3 to Tonnelle, perpendicular ramps with a "yield" sign.

The intersection had absolutely no signage so essentially cars going north on West Hamilton Place and cars going east on Pavonia Avenue both had the "right of way", i.e. an accident waiting to happen. In any case, I did reach out to Candice and she informed me of this frustrating fight since October 2013. Well, finally a stop sign was installed today for those traveling east on Pavonia. Painted crosswalks will be there tomorrow.

West Hamilton Place and Pavonia is half a short block. It needs pedestrian crossing markings. A stop sign is a bit of overkill imo.

I've been talking with Candus about this exact same intersection since October of last year. How hard is it to get a stop sign up at an intersection of two roads at a park?!?
I've been copied on several of the emails Candus has sent to the Department of Public Works and
Division of Traffic & Transportation and I can safely say it is not Candus' fault. The department is just not responding and doesn't seem to care at all. It's ridiculous.

Four months later I am still baffled what the problem could be as to why that intersection doesn't deserve a stop sign or two immediately. Am I wrong to think that there should at least be one stop sign at that intersection, probably two? The fact that there is not stop sign at all is asking for an accident. Please be careful when crossing those streets.

I find it sad that we can't look outside our own little sandbox to see solutions in other communities other than having every single block everywhere having a stop sign. Out neighbor Hoboken, which has similar problems has found ways to make the "pedestrian right of way" thing work. Almost too well, pedestrians there are so confident they don't even look up when crossing the street!

As it stands now, every resident wants a stop or a hump or both on THEIR street! This is not the solution, but for some reason better educating and disciplining drivers, normally a lucrative industry for local law enforcement, doesn't seem to be in the playbook. Every once in a while there's a push and you'll see a lot of tickets given, then it stops. As we all know, a cop at any stop sign in JC could issue tickets as fast as he could write them. I can't drive 10 minutes here without seeing someone blow a stop, and I don't mean a roll through. So adding stop signs without any significant enforcement is begging the question, don't you think?

Once again Reading comprehension skills on here are at an all time low. We went off track because a poster on here mentioned how their dog was almost hit from some jackass backing up down a one way street. The idiot driver is the given in this scenario. Agreed? Can we all agree we acknowledge the drivers suck?

Ok, we also then established this poster walks their dog like most dopey dog walkers in this city, as in well ahead of them. As in improperly. Therefore, if you just walked your dog properly (not likely), the chances of it getting hit by an errant driver are reduced.

Are some of you guys and gals on here not able to walk and chew gum at the same time?

Thank you, your link backs up everything I've said on this board. The only wiggle room is concept of dominance, which is playing semantics. The bottom line point is majority of dog owners in this city haven't taken a second to train their dogs (and themselves).

Thanks again for providing this. I just hope the dopey dog owners in this town actually take the time to be a responsible dog owner.

That's not what I am saying. Control what you can control. If you walk your properly, then it will be much more difficult for it to get when drivers make mistakes. What's insane is how little attention the dog owners in this town actually give to properly training themselves to own a dog (much different than simply training their dogs).

Wow. Seriously?! Somebody drives the wrong way down a one-way street, BACKWARDS, and the only takeaway you have is "you're walking your dog wrong?"

JCBiscuit, it's not about pulling. Your dog walks you. Period

Step up, and be the human in the relationship. Stop making excuses for why you're terrible at walking your dog and wondering how it almost got hit by a car.

http://m.dogbreedinfo.com/?url=http%3 ... ticles%2Fdogwalk.htm#2933

"Walk your dog, do not let your dog walk you. If you allow your dog to walk in front of you while on a lead you are reinforcing in the dog's mind that the dog is alpha over you because the leader always goes first. This can lead to many behavioral issues that some regard as a "breed trait" or "personality," when actually it is your dog being in charge of its humans. When a dog walks in front, it does not drain its mental energy. The dog is not relaxed, as it has the big responsibility of leading the pack. This mental anguish can build up inside of a dog. When a dog is hyper or high-strung it means the dog is not getting the proper amount and/or type of exercise. If your dog runs laps around your yard or house, this is an indication that it is not getting enough exercise."

He doesn't pull me, he simply walks ahead of me where I can see him. There are, sadly, more horrible events happening in the world.

Only in Jersey City does one need to look both ways on a one-way street.

And I was 2 feet behind my dog, who walks on a regular leash.

Morris Canal WAS the safest place to run your dog. In a few weeks its going to be known as the place to get the most tickets from animal control. Second behind VVP and Hamilton. Just wait and see what's in store...

Everybody knows that the best, safest place to run your dog is Morris Canal Park but I would hardly blame the "almost" victim since they did indeed get out of harms way. I suppose you think that woman who got run over with her 5 year old is a terrible parent?

Didn't your mother tell you to look both ways ? Also how long was you dog's leash and was it retractable ?

This is why so many college music programs make you use pen. If you make a mistake you gotta live with it or start over. She missed her turn so she backs up? What a moron.

Interesting side-note: The man who alerted me was the same gentleman who walks down Erie yelling at phantoms, occasionally with a vuvuzela and/or hardhat. This is the only moment of clarity I've ever witnessed from him, and it literally saved my dog's life. I thanked him profusely, and he replied, "the people in this town drive like they're crazy."
