Be informed. Get involved. City Councilor at-Large Michael Flaherty is hosting a community meeting on behalf of all the South Boston elected officials and the mayor’s office on Monday, June 26th from 5:30-7:30pm at the Curley Community Center aka the L. A public safety plan for the summer with Boston, State and MBTA police will be the topic of discussion.
We know we’re gonna bring up how scary Day Blvd. is for pedestrians! Slow down, people!
Mark your calendars! All are encourage to attend!
I knew two people who were hit and killed by cars on Day Boulevard. This is not a new situation. Why hasn’t this been addressed in a permanent manner?
The recent story of oversized vehicles on this roadway is just more of the same thing. The police make a show of force, write citations and then in a manner of days; are gone. The situation resumes.
There needs to be more traffic signals along Day Blvd. They need to be timed to slow traffic down. The present situation is unsatisfactory.
Drinking at “M” street beach..MUST STOP..this is family town..Their should be designated area of “m” street beach for “sports activities” ( throwing footballs, frisbees, corn hole ECT) and stop bothering beach goers playing their stupid “games” .. What ever happened to just going to the beach and relaxing..this place during the summer is being INVADED by a a lot (not all) of real IDIOTS..What about UBER CARS stopping right in the middle of DAY BLVD. And letting the beach goers exit the vehicle while blocking traffic !..TELL THESE YUPPIE INVADERS TO PICK UP THEIR TRASH (mostly empty beer cans) when going home to their nice south shore homes..
Will the subject of the increased population in the Waterfront and demand for more police/fire/EMS protectection be brought up at this meeting? If they plan to create an entire neighborhood in this area along with numerous people passing through and working in this area, the public safety resources in the neighborhood should be increased to deal with this increase in population.
We do NOT need more traffic signals on Day Boulevard. We already have 3 light signals in a 5 block area, between L St and P St. What we desperately need in is a police presence to stop the commuters from going through red lights at the intersection of L St and Day Blvd. I live in the neighborhood and see it every day. Traffic signals do not stop these people but maybe police will.
Better yet, a police presence on M St. Beach would serve 2 purposes, to stop the speeding AND public drinking on M Street Beach. For some reason, this beach attracts more millennials who consistently make a mess of the beach with their trash, beer cans, and bottles. I’m all for people using the beach but this is the height of laziness and totally unacceptable.
