Reader Voices Serious Concerns At Ken Smith Crossing

“The Infamous bike lane is really prominent in the accompanying picture. It is rarely used by bikers( too dangerous), has compromised safe turns from Broad Street and West Ridgewood Avenue and unless it is completely removed and 2 lanes restored under the bridge going to the west side, the apartment complex going up at the old Ken Smith Motors site will create serious concerns at that intersection which is already bad enough.”

Reader says , ” I hate taking trees and green space no matter how small “

” Hated Paul’s giant garage, don’t think at this point we need the smaller version but most of all I hate taking trees and green space no matter how small for more for extra spaces at the Train Station which will not make a difference in the end and will cost commuters an arm and a leg. Also agree with the post about over regulation in the CBD. If anything is going to hurt the downtown businesses it will be this. I almost feel like first come first served would be a better plan and open up the streets with free parking. It has been done on other town “

Reader calls taxing bags ,”just another money grab”

” I was happy with paper bags. Then they put handles on them and I was happier. Then, ‘they’ said that WE WERE destroying the rainforests and plastic bags became the rage – despite their lack of support. Then, supermarkets and Whole Foods-esque places asked ‘paper or plastic?’. Now, it’s plastic bad, paper better, reusable best. Oh, and we’ll tax/charge you to use the first 2 options. I don’t mind being charged by the market for bags, like Ikea would do, I’m not a fan of taxing. It’s just another money grab. Taxing bags is another in a year-long tax-a-thon – bags, rain, salons, signs, leaves (oh, that’s a fine, my bad) gas…on top of the $.23 that Christie adopted, weed. And the list goes on. “

Reader says , “I am certain that there would be fewer accidents if drivers paid attention to the road and not their electronic devices when driving”

” I am certain that there would be fewer accidents if drivers paid attention to the road and not their electronic devices when driving. Also , when I walk in the CBD I wait for cars to stop and let me cross and they often do not especially on Broad Street in front of the Super Cellars area and Union St. in back of Talbots. Why? because there are no police there. Cars stop in front of Van Neste Square because there are police cars there watching.
Cars are vehicles controlled by people. Many of the people driving cars hate other people and would just as soon run over someone and kill them. Have you noticed in the news how many hit and run driving incidents there are. The question is why are so many people so hateful. Is it because the area is expensive and crowded; is it some kind of me first attitude, and you can go to hell. Of course those things all contribute. Does anyone know other reasons , or the reason? “
