Lynne Powers watched workers turn Milk Street into Sixth Avenue this evening for Ghostbusters filming.
Chinatown block gets even Chinatownier, if only for a little while.
"Don't block the box" must be a NYC sign since drivers block intersections all over Boston.
...keep it coming.
World Class Status...here we come!!!
Milk Street is narrow and curvy. Sixth Avenue is wide and straight.
Can we please keep the "Don't block the box" sign after filming is over?
Put them up throughout the city/state?? Fines and points included. Please.
there's already painted intersections and "DO NOT BLOCK INTERSECTION" signs in some places. of course it's never enforced and even if it were to be the punishment is a finger-wagging at best.
it works in NY because their points system is no joke.
... is the complete lack of consistency in Massachusetts. The "do not block intersection" signs are not big enough and the boxes are not used frequently enough that people have a crystal clear understanding of their meaning. And, some people are also just idiots. The number of times I see cars pull into a crosswalk - despite the clear stop line in most cases - is astonishing. Perhaps adding some painted "stop here" or "wait here" coupled with "keep clear" in actual intersections and some actual enforcement (instead of useless construction detail) would help a lot.
Say what you will about California's traffic, but at the very least everyone knows there not to block an intersection (because of all of the aforementioned tactics used to educate the driving public).
Also I think New York abandoned the point penalty but has authorized parking enforcement to issue tickets since the "block the box" is no longer considered a moving violation but rather like a parking violation. Would be a boon for BTD!
Actually it doesnt work in NYC. They no longer enforce that or the honking law.
I'd also vote to keep the readable parking sign, and the well-placed one way sign.
now this! Duoh!
Looks like they're turning Kilby St into 6th Avenue.
