The Saratogian helps address dangerous intersection

On Saturday, November 13, The Saratogian  addressed issue #64748, where a SeeClickFix user posted an issue regarding two cedar trees that were planted near a stop sign and are obstructing the view of oncoming traffic between the intersection of Hawthorne Blvd. and Hutchins Rd.  in Saratoga Springs, NY. 

It was reported that there are community concerns that this intersection is dangerous and could cause an accident. With further investigation, The Saratogian found out through City police Sgt. Andrew Prestigiacomo that there was one accident reported at this intersection so far, caused by a driver failing to yeild to the right of way.  

Public works was also interviewed and reported that they will work to assess this intersection within the next two upcoming weeks. Tim Cogan, the Deputy Public Works Commissioner, was reported saying that "We'll trim the trees."
