1. Thank you. I moved back here from an area with a lot more biking and pedestrian infrastructure and it's shocking how our planning is stuck back in 1990 or so. Buffalo is *so flat*, there's loads of empty space, and the city is compact. There's no reason there shouldn't be a built-out bike network like that's developed in Chicago over the years.

  2. My road to my building now has speed humps from jefferson to the 33….. yet jefferson itself looks like it was targeted by a heavy bombing run

  3. As badly as I want protected bike lanes, I have to agree with this too. Why do so many intersections in Buffalo basically not have lane lines? Is road paint that expensive?

  4. I used to deliver mail in the city and now I work a different job that has me all over the city on a weekly basis. It never ceases to amaze me how fast people drive down neighborhood streets. It blows me away how reckless some of these assholes are. And then they get pulled over for blowing a stop sign or driving over 50 MPH and have the nerve to blame the cops for it. Lay the speed bumps down and fuck their cars up. Hopefully that serves as a deterrent.

  5. The whole 14621 area and even most of the city has speed humps on on almost every side street. I definitely agree about speeding getting worse.

  6. Plot twist: The potholes and lack of plowing have been a street slowing Byron Brown program all along.

  7. They did this on Days Park which I've never seen an issue with speeding but the street is still a minefield of potholes that will ruin your car. I'm so glad we are spending our tax dollars on solutions to problems that aren't that big of a deal while ignoring the ones that are. Most of the residential street speeding is done be folks trying to bypass stoplights and traffic jams on main roads. Why not hire a civil engineer or two and actually make the main streets move better?

  8. When the mayor's street gets them we'll talk. People are entitled Here? Damm right. It's our city. On another note the news should do a story on whose getting the contract to make the humps. Follow the money is the real story not public safety.

  9. Follow the money, sure. But in the end if it gets traced back to someone’s favorite candidate, it’ll just get looked over and they’ll be voted in again and again.

  10. Really the correct solution is a traffic enforcement office much like parking enforcement. We don't need to be paying someone $100k to give out speeding tickets, and we don't need people getting shot by cops because they were speeding.

  11. C’mon, we all know the only time the BPD gives a shit about ticketing is when they are trying to strong arm the city into meeting their demands for funding. Cops write tickets to citizens. Citizens complain to politicians. Politicians cave to cops’ demands. The circle of local politics is complete.

  12. We got them in our neighborhood back in the Fall and they've been pretty helpful. I'm not sure what the criteria is or why we were chosen.

  13. They absolutely are not. They're currently being installed on parallel streets, with perpendicular streets being left open. So emergency vehicles can easily traverse to a location, pop over at maximum, two speed bumps, and be on their way.

  14. Unfortunately they also slow down emergency vehicles, like ambulances and fire trucks, which isn’t good…but I get why residents want them, even if I find them extremely annoying.
