In a letter to Wicked Local, resident Jane Hanser calls for an end to Newton’s Traffic Council saying the  “approach gets in the way of safety.”

[All] changes in safety or traffic must be citizen-initiated and must go through the Traffic Council, a body which meets only one night each month (that is, only 11 times per year) to deal with all of Newton’s requests for traffic and safety improvements. The current situation hamstrings the City Departments that are focused on safety and traffic.
