  • Western Boulevard Raleigh, North Carolina - Central
    The intersection of Western Blvd and Boylan Ave remains a problem. In the last three days I have nearly been hit by a car that did not recognize the red light as relevant to their desire to turn left from Western onto Boylan and seen three other cars turning onto Western from Boylan run the red light for pedestrian crossing. Cars do not know where to stop (for westbound traffic on Western some go through the intersection and stop by the walkway others stop before the intersection, eastbound cars on Western turning left onto Boylan do not always stop before the crosswalk but seek to turn while the cars are stopped on Western). All of this is very hazardous for pedestrians and motorists. Is there some kind of signage to alert those turning onto Western from Boylan that they should be alert to the possibility of a red light at the crosswalk? Should the crosswalk be moved? Is there a sign to inform turning traffic from Western onto Boylan about where to stop or can an additional light be placed over the turn lane? I don't know the best solution, but this is an ongoing problem.
  • 1700 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh, North Carolina - Five Points
    When traveling in either direction on Glenwood Avenue, it is extremely unsafe to make a left turn onto either Whitaker Mill Road, or Fairview Road. Drivers who attempt to turn left on the solid green light (not the green arrow) cannot see far enough ahead to know if the intersection is clear. This intersection is confusing enough without this added safety concern. I've seen many accidents here and was in one myself when I tried to turn left here. If you don't turn left on the solid green, the drivers behind you will get angry and try to drive around you, which is even more dangerous. The addition of a No Left Turn arrow on this traffic signal would solve this problem. I can't believe that hasn't been done already!
  • 4201-4299 Lassiter Mill Road Raleigh, North Carolina - Six Forks Corridor
    Road was just paved and re-marked and heading west on Lassiter Mill road the road suddenly without warning goes from two lanes to one because of the new bike lane marking. This will cause accidents.
  • 3600 Mackinac Island Ln Raleigh, NC 27610, USA - Southeast
    There is very often a red cab tractor trailer parked in front of this residence. It's difficult to see around the corner with it. It's also tough because it parks quite a bit away from The curb on occasion.
  • 2524 Hillsborough Street Raleigh, North Carolina - Wade
    In front of Reverie Coffee every morning, there are cars parked in the bus lane.
  • 5900 Timber Creek Raleigh, North Carolina - Northwest

    When driving west on W. Millbrook, there is an exit from Timbers Apartments on the left. Residents frequently do these two things during heavy 5 PM traffic and there are frequent accidents and near misses at the Millbrook x Timber Creek intersection because of it.

    1) They get in the eastbound right turn lane (marked with a yellow star in the picture) going the wrong way and trying to turn left into Timbers. By the way, during rush hour, this lane is almost always backed up past the entrance to the Timbers, so it creates a standstill.
    2) They come to a full stop in the westbound lane (blue star in the picture), waiting for the eastbound turn lane to clear so they can turn into Timbers. They come to a full and unexpected stop during rush hour on a 45 mph road. It's no wonder there are wrecks.

    I am also attempting to contact Timbers management to get them to communicate regarding this issue to their residents, but in the meantime, I believe DOT or police should evaluate. Whether there needs to be additional painting in the eastbound turn lane that makes it clear it's not a left-into-Timbers lane, or a sign, or additional police monitoring during rush hour, I'm not sure. But the problem occurs there daily. An officer in an unmarked car could sit there from 5:15 until 5:45 and probably witness a fender bender, several near misses, and a lot of flustered honking and confusion.

    I really can't see how this apartment complex was not required to provide an additional entrance or notify their residents to U turn and take a right into the complex instead of causing traffic jams and wrecks.

  • 701 S. Boylan Avenue Raleigh, North Carolina - Central
    Please ask City of Raleigh Inspections Dept. to investigate whether someone is living at 701 S. Boylan Avenue without proper permits. The house has no electricity but a car is parked in the front yard many mornings and a dog continues to be chained to the front porch during the day. Recently the dog was alone all day and began barking non-stop in the evening presumably because it didn't have food or water. Thank you.
  • Leaking water mainAcknowledged
    1953-2009 Midwood Drive Raleigh, North Carolina - East Raleigh

    There is a leaking water main on Midwood Dr. near Dennis Ave. A Public Utilities crew did work here 3-4 weeks ago at this spot, patching the road around a water main valve. However, the valve has slowly leaked on the road ever since. This has created a large patch of ice in the mornings and I imagine that some of this water is also leaking below ground.

    I called about this a week ago but nothing's been done. Hopefully this ticket will help. Thanks! - Mark
