13-71 Pond Ln Arlington, MA 02474, USAThere is a stop sign as you head toward the pond before the underpass (bike trail is overhead). In summer, stop sign is obscured by foliage. Even in winter, cars often do not stop. Perhaps a double stop sign? or a sign over the underpass? How about a yellow caution sign "Playground Ahead" or "Children Playing"?· Reported by M.

The road surface on this street is deteriorating from pavement back to unpaved. After last winter, when a snowplow came through here, there's been a pothole literally all the way across the street. There's no way to go through here in a car without hitting the pothole; the abutting neighbors have recently placed large rocks to keep cars out of their yard--- as they have a right to do--- but the result is that the road's becoming a serious hazard even at very slow speeds.
This street has no name on the town maps; I've heard that the town considers it a "fire access road" to Hancock Street, and that it's neither a private way nor a public road, which means no one's responsible for it. Frankly, I don't care about the jurisdictional details anymore. The other end of Hancock Street is a very steep hill, and this is the flat way to get back and forth to Hancock. It's important for bicycle and walking access.· Reported by Shane Landrum · Flag Flagged
