  • 17 Gore Street Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East Cambridge
    Sign was destroyed by plows this winter.
  • 1218 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Riverside
    Bow St northbound (bike lane) approach to Mass Ave is dangerous because you can't see traffic coming from the right. Often it's trucks that make wide turns and you can't see before it's too late. Traffic moves quite fast also. Perhaps a stop sign would resolve this problem (and also get vehicles to stop for pedestrians, which is a big problem here) or maybe some bollards would give space for sight lines.

    Thousands of instances THROUGHOUT CAMBRIDGE, NOT just the location of this photo:

    Many street signs have rusty wires like this hanging off them. They snag and tear umbrellas and raincoats, especially on the narrower sidewalks where they're harder to avoid. Worse, they're almost always right around eye-level for me or someone I know---don't walk around Cambridge without wearing eye protection or being current on your tetanus shots? ;)

    I believe they're used when you put up temporary car-management signage. When the signs come down, please clean the wires as well. Meanwhile, can we add this to the list of costs caused by cars, and pay for it out of the parking and/or gas tax budget?

    In the short term, it would be good to do a sweep of all of Cambridge and remove all of them so we can start clean. This hazard has been building up for a long time due to laziness on the part of whomever removes the signs, and it would of course have been far more efficient if they'd taken care of it when they removed the signs, but that didn't happen, and now we probably ought to just pay for the fix.

    the slow children signpost is leaning into the pedestrian zone of the crosswalk, please straighten it or remove the signpost, which is farther in from the curb than it needs to be.
