People seem to go out their way to jay walk here. It creates unnecessary public safety issue along public streets. The worst areas are along Sunrise Blvd and 17th st. Causeway.
Gives the city a third world appearance and it obstructs safety and traffic flow.
I have emailed elected officials regarding vehicles permanently housed in FTL, but registered in other states. I asked how report these infractions. I got replies from staffers that pointed fingers in every direction but the correct one. Our communities are deprived of the income associated with these vehicles as well as the fraudulent insurance policies. All I ask is everyone follow the law which provides our community more resources to grow.
Beautify las olas with center isle extension to 15th ave
I propose that the waterway police could benefit by the addition of jet skis. Police would use the jet skis to patrol our waterways much the way motorcycle police patrol our streets. The cops on the jet skis could call the patrol boats for back up just as the motorcycle cops call the cruisers. This would enable the city to increase waterway patrols at a lower cost. I really think this is necessary because I have noticed more and more speed violators and safety violators on the waterways.
Perhaps better instructions on cans. We have many visitors who do not recycle at home apparantly. Public Service Announcements in form of a quiz show. Perhaps with bright eyed children competing on where to put some more unusual items. Wire, Xmas lights, styrofoam, bug spray containers, etc. There are items which I look at and wonder where it should go. I see such atrocities going into recycle bins sometimes I cringe.
Get on a program to replace street lights with ones that do not create light pollution in the sky and my bedroom windows.
Nobody feels safe walking on the sidewalk along either of these bridges, especially if they are walking with young children. The City cannot expect pedestrians who live/ work on one side of the river to regularly attend events/ patronize businesses on the other side of the river, if they have to gamble with their lives in order to get there. The SW 7th Ave bridge sidewalk is especially dangerous because of the way the street curves leading into the bridge. The need for these guard rails will become more pronounced over the next few years as the south side of the Riverwalk becomes more fully developed.
15th Ave between Broward Boulevard and Las Olas is a busy street. Many large vehicles use this street heading east and turning from Broward into 15th Ave. Unfortunately the radius of the corner is very small which causes these vehicles to drive over the gutter and footpath in order to make the turn.This has caused the concrete, over time to break up. I now see that repairs have been made but am astounded that the same radius has been left. It is obvious a larger radius is required so it is my suggestion to improve this corner with that in mind.
Install Misting systems (spritzers) around the City so that people can cool off when they are walking or biking or just hot. Spritzer emit a cool water mist when you press the button.
