County streets and city streets
« on: February 24, 2022, 03:59:33 PM »
I've been upset that Bergen County, which "owns" many streets in Hackensack and the other towns in the county, hasn't installed walk/don't walk signs at Passaic Street and Summit Avenue for pedestrians after a woman was run down and then run over last year nor done anything to make Polifly Road safer after another woman was killed by a hit-run driver as she was crossing to the CVS in darkness (there are no crosswalks or adequate lights for 6 bocks of Polifly from Essex to Lodi streets). But it turns out that at least in Hackensack, Bergen only is responsible only for parts of Summit Avenue and other streets I formerly thought of as being under the supervision of the county. I haven't been able to reach anyone at the county, including the public information officer, Michael Pagan, who is also a Teaneck councilman.

I wrote two blog posts on these topics:

For many years, two side-by-side traffic lanes on Prospect Avenue and Passaic Street going toward Euclid Avenue were unmarked with arrows, but turn arrows were finally added to the left lane by the city of Hackensack after repeated requests to the Bergen County road department were ignored for years. I'd post a photo here, if I could figure out how to do that.

Pedestrians are sitting ducks on Polifly Road in Hackensack, where another woman was killed in July as she tried to cross the street at night

Bergen County refuses to add crosswalks, warning signs
