concern about safety

There is an urgent need for adequate lighting on the North side of the 606 at Bloomingdale and Western. The pavement is very uneven and dangerous to pedestrians. Also any traffic coming from the East trying to merge onto Western cannot see what's coming from northbound traffic on Western. There should be a way for cars to see what's coming on Western, in order to merge without blocking the crosswalk or entering Western since that's very dangerous to the moving cars on Western as well.

    . I still think a more intense street light would be necessary for the pedestrians though as repaving would probably not last due to Chicago climate and the fact that it's somewhat under a viaduct (the 606) which always has bad pavement anyway. That would be better than a stop sign, if it would stay visible. Right now you can see a little portion of coming traffic thru the posts, but not everything....and you're not totally sure of what's coming and how fast.
    Where should it be placed exactly? T He more detail you tell the city, the better.

  • Artist girl Artist and Muscian

    I didn't say a stop sign, I said a convex traffic mirror that would show approaching traffic reflected in it. It would solve the problem. You would place it to the right, on the north side of Bloomingdale, where it meets Western, and turn it so that it shows approaching traffic.

    So Hoping this girl might be Shayna missing from Skokie. Her family saw a camera video from where she was lost while with a sitter that showed she was picked up, so it's possible she ended up in Chicago. I did contact Shayna's mom and she is going to contact you as she looks like her girl. She is not on facebook and I believe her grandson who lives in Texas is trying to help her set up a facebook account to comment on on the hospital's post. Her phone number: (224) 766-6566 https://www.facebook.com/LostFoundPetsChicagoIL/photos/a.1940701626149048.1073741828.1753317621554117/2028868947332315/?type=3&theater

    Thank you so much for posting as this lead to Shayna, missing from Skokie and she is back home with her mom tonight Sunday 11/19/2017. Your post helped me remember a lost post I saw from pawboost and the rest is history. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, you gave Shayna and her family a Thanksgiving miracle!

  • Oh this is so great! How great you found the owner! I bet the family is so relieved. Thanks for taking her in, and to Ev for the followup. Thanks for letting us know how it turned out.

Share Christmas/ Sponsoring a child or family

Hello!

Does anyone know of any good local organizations that have a share Christmas program; meaning any program where you are able to donate gifts, and/or sponsor a family/child for Christmas?

Hello neighbors: Something to look out for in near Damen / Thomas / Hoyne /Haddon areas of 60622: This evening while I was walking my dog, a man in a white Volkswagen sedan moved his car up to block the crosswalk I was trying to cross. He was looking straight at me and jerking off. Appalled, I turned and walked the other way. Then I get to my house not even a block away and another different man in a white Nissan sedan is doing the same thing in his car in front of my house not even 5 minutes later. Two different dudes, two different white cars within less than a block away from each other. I did not have my phone on my so I did not call the police to report either incident and I was too grossed out to go back out the car parked in front of my house to get the plate number. If you are in this zone of 60622, perhaps keep an eye out and be safe.

    Mute, according to Illinois Statutes and City Ordinance no matter what size of taser it is considered possession of a weapon. But a small pocket size taser or mace would be a misdemeanor. But I don't know any Police Officer that would charge you if you were being attacked and you used it. Mace is sold practically everywhere. You want to get the stream and not the spray. The stream does exactly that. The spray goes all over and could spray an innocent. The stream is like a water hose and goes directly at your target. There is a saying that says it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. The mace sells for about $10 to $15. I don't think you are the kind of person that would be walking down the street and be subject to stop and frisk. It is better to be safe than sorry. If you were my sister I wouldn't hesitate to get her both to protect herself. Stay safe Mute

    My oldest has been attending Burr since pre-school and is now in 2nd grade. Every year, the teachers have been caring, compassionate and attentive. I've seen my child grow leaps and bounds.

Flasher (and worse) on North Avenue between Hoyne and Leavitt

Tonight at about 10pm while walking on the southside of North Ave just west of Hoyne, a man in a black Acura sedan stopped in an alley as he approached North avenue. As I walked in front of his car, I noticed that he had exposed himself (and was engaged in an activity I can't say here). I continued walking down North. 20 feet or so later, he pulls up next to me on North, before speeding away. Gross.

    Also, post signs with pictures in a six block radius around your house. Put some of her litter and old clothes that smell like you around the door to your house or apartment. Make sure all the shelters know she is missing, too. GOOD LUCK!!!

  • Also you might want to set a trap outside. Put some food like can tuna and sardines with a blanket over the trap. The smell might bring her around. Someone suggested this to me when my inside cat got out. It worked. Good luck. I was crazy when my cat got out. Please keep us posted.

Dear Joggers

When running up from behind a person with dogs or around blind corners please slow down and make sure a dog walker is aware of your presence so they can secure their dogs. Or even better, simply divert to the street. If you want to pretend you're Usain Bolt find a track or join Midtown Athletic Club. The sidewalk is not a running track.

  • @John C. says "Joggers are looking straight ahead."

    That's called tunnel vision or can't see the forest through the trees, a form of ignorance that not only afflicts joggers, but drivers, politicians, and society in general. Parents are very diligent teaching their children about cars careening out of alleys. They usually don't teach them to look around corners when crossing a sidewalk, probably because sidewalks are supposed to be areas safe from being run over.

  • Oddly, the one thing my super nervous dog isn’t scared by is joggers approaching from behind. A garbage truck 2 blocks over, freak out. Some guy zooming up and past us, whatever.

    You can usually hear joggers coming anyway. Most wear running shoes that sound alike.
