I walk to and from the train station each day as part of my commute, as do many others who live in my neighborhood, which requires that we cross the two very busy roads in the title of this thread. There are marked pedestrian crossings on the pavement but no conspicuous signs, and motorists often do not yield. I've had a few close calls and honestly think it's only a matter of time before someone gets hit, assuming it hasn't happened already.

My question is this: what is the best course of action to get the town to do something about it? Who is the best person to write to or call? Anyone have any experience with anything like this?

Thanks!

Start with your town. Go to the town meeting and state your opinion so it's on the record. Write a letter to a newspaper. If it's a county road, the town might try to say that it's the county's problem, but it's still the town's job to fight for needed improvements.

Sad to say, many times it takes a fatal accident to get needed improvements.
