Recently on Gerritsen Avenue the Department of Transportation laid out 6 traffic counting devices at the intersections of Florence & Gerritsen, and Cyrus & Gerritsen.
Not surprisingly, 3 of them have been damaged to the point that they aren’t able to work properly. They have been cut, ripped up and moved, and in one case the rubber strip has been laid completely parallel to the sidewalk.
It seems that, as a community, we have been yelling and screaming that we want a traffic light or some sort of traffic control measures on Gerritsen Avenue. However, when it comes down to the actual traffic studies, we are completely hypocritical by destroying the devices that are there to help. Who destroyed these devices? Adults that don’t want change? Kids that see a new target?
I’ve been told that the DOT has been notified and will be replacing the strips, if not already.
