Please remove Embry Circle & Alton Road in Atlanta 30341 from rush hour routes.
This is a residential area with a community pool, a school and a Church. A lot of children and residents walk around the neighborhood every day. People don't honor the speed limits & it is very dangerous. We often see drivers looking at their navigation system zooming through stop signs and sometimes traffic gets so backed up, they turn around and speed through inner streets that don't connect to main roads trying to get around. This is awful and needs to change.
Please, please, please remove our streets. You have destroyed our neighborhood from 330 until 7 or 8 pm with this traffic!!! I can't get out of my driveway without coming to a dead stop in any direction with lined up cars. Don't even get me started on the speeding. I'm terrified to step into the street to open my mailbox on most days. We don't have sidewalks through most of the neighborhood so it has been a ridiculously unnecessary intrusion on our needs to walk and just live peacefully in our own neighborhood.

Please add Embry Hills Drive to the streets in Embry Hills that we, as homeowners and neighbors, would like to have removed from Waze rush hour routing. Just last week, Waze was routing traffic from one side of Embry Circle to the other, down Embry Hills Drive -- ostensibly to avoid one side of Embry Circle because of a slowdown on that specific side of Embry Circle.

I am shocked that a navigation company would route traffic through any neighborhood. At the stop sign at Embry and Shabromat, none of the cars turning right to go back onto Henderson Mill stop for the stop sign and the cars trying to turn left pull into the intersection waiting to turn, which blocks people turning left off of Shabromat. Please stop directing traffic through our neighborhood. I would be curious to see if any of the owners of WAZE have their neighborhoods marked as cut through zones...

As an Alton Road resident, I can’t stress how dangerous these cut through drivers are. They have no regard for stop signs, speed limits, or children on bicycles. Recently, my son crashed into the neighbor’a bushes to avoid being hit by a car.
Please, remove our neighborhood.
Agreed. When I was nine months pregnant and crossing in a cross walk, was nearly run over - the driver didn't stop for the stop sign and had the nerve to honk at me. In addition, traffic is now so backed up that I must now leave my home 15 minutes earlier to pick up my kids from school because our neighborhood is now so congested with cars coming from outside the neighborhood to cut through main roads.

Yes this is true. I would add that many of the cut-thru drivers block residents from getting in their own driveways, and block the all way stop intersection at Shabromat and Embry Circle. Many also play their radios too loud. Whether its hip-hop or classic rock I don't want to hear it blasting me out my yard!
