Issues: road safety
26 E. Coulter St Philadelphia, PA 19144A trash dumpster has been placed by Cunningham Piano Co. on the street. This was placed there before Christmas, 2010 because of PGW work on the sidewalk. The problem has been corrected but the dumpster has remained in place for 3 months. It is a magnet for short dumping, graffiti tagging and when it was placed there in the past it was actually set ablaze. This dumpster is a safety hazard and a sanitation hazard. Cunningham is aware of this problem but they have not bothered to do anything about it.

253 W Haines Street Philadelphia, PA
The residents at 253 W Haines street drive a commercial vehicle with a very loud backup beeper.
Between the hours of 7am and 12am, 7days a week, this vehicle generates 97db of beeping noise, less than 10feet from residential housing. Furthermore the vehicle is often left in reverse for extended periods of time.
Philadelphia noise code states:
"10-401. Legislative Findings. (1) The City Council of the City of Philadelphia finds: (a) that noise and excessive vibration degrade the environment of the City to a degree which: (.1) is harmful and detrimental to the health, welfare and safety of its inhabitants; (.2) interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life, property and recreation and with the conduct and operation of business and industry; and (.3) causes nuisances;"
It its not fair that law-abiding citizens are unable to enjoy any peace and quiet while resting at home.· Reported by Angry Taxpayer · Flag Flagged
