The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
When driving on Rt 9 at night, south of the lake, I often see pedestrians that are dressed in dark clothing walking on he side of the road. If a car would go to the shoulder, to pass a turning car, it can lead to the pedestrian getting hit.
I think placing rumble strips (like Rt. 88 has in the center) on the shoulders of the road would prevent cars from swerving to the shoulder, or at least slow them down.
Response from Mayor Coles:
I will be attending a meeting with the sate DOT this month to discus a number of issues about Rt 9 and we will ask if they would allow these strips to be installed.
