Thank you, Holly! The context is quite helpful.

Please don't remove the unsignalized midblock crosswalk between Walker Memorial and the Sailing Pavilion. People are going to cross there. Make it safer for them to do so. In fact, consider making it a raised crosswalk to slow vehicles. Memorial Dr shouldn't be a highway.

Okay, I have to ask: what is the extremely loud horn that now goes off as two blasts randomly through out the day? It is even louder than the actual trains that come through the Grand Junction. And, since there is no pattern to when it sounds, it feels like working under a Logan airport flight path. My sympathies to local residents.

Can you put up some "Go Slow" signs in the cattle chute we have to walk through to get to MIT Medical? I've had to dodge bikes, rollerbladers & Vespas there; but it took a motorized wheelchair going full speed around a blind corner to finally cause me injury. The way just past the Kendall Hotel is narrow with uneven pavement and blind corners at the E23 steps and the sharp left turn just after them. Getting people on wheels to go the same speed as pedestrians (headway speed) would be great.

Motion seconded. A summer knee injury means I can echo that this is not just an inconvenience when every step is painful or difficult. Also, the placement of 120+db generators/motors right next to the elevator at the Kendall Sq. stop really does hearing damage while you are waiting for the elevator when you cannot take the stairs. When those are going, your ears keep ringing once you get into the elevator.
