Despite spending $50K in late 2004 to construct a traffic safety speed table and cutout on South Pleasant Avenue near the Somerville School, Village Council members are still very unhappy with motor vehicle traffic flow and parking in the area.
On March 12, Ordinance 3108 was introduced by Council members. This ordinance, if approved, will ban all stopping and standing along the west side of South Pleasant Avenue between the hours of 7:00 AM and 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
So, regardless of the new traffic safety speed table and cutout, which were constructed to facilitate drop offs and pick ups on the west side of South Pleasant Avenue, Council members plan to ban this practice.
The Fly thinks this will create even more of a traffic mess in the area. What do you think?
