I live on a one way street that connects two major thruways in the city, the first being Atwells Avenue, the other being Broadway. The street heads south from Atwells.
It is used by all manor of emergency vehicles so the sirens are a pretty much constant feature.
The continuation of the street is two way traffic so it does cause some of the issues I’ve seen.
And I’ve seen numerous fire engines and rescues come this way, even though the nearest fire station is on Atwells Avenue, west of Knight St.
So while I wonder why they go the wrong way down the street, the one that absolutely floored me is seeing a Providence Police cruiser do the very same thing today, lights on and siren blaring.
Just open it to two way traffic, that’s the solution. The road is wide enough for three cars to fit across, use one lane for parking, the other two for traffic.
