    This SUV parked *all* weekend in this same spot and received NO TICKETS. Why??? Not only did it block the crosswalk, it blocked the curb cut. The plates have a "disabled" symbol -- and apparently the driver doesn't care if anyone else has to walk out into the street or get hit by a car turning left from Grays Ferry to 24th because this enormous SUV has blocked all visibility.

    (This car sat in the adjacent alley another weekend without getting ticketed, even though others were trying to access the alley for legitimate reasons.)

    Please make sure this car gets ticketed just as everyone else does! The driver is getting the message that s/he can park wherever s/he likes, and that's totally uncool.

    There's a worsening sinkhole right in the middle of the intersection of 24th & Catharine.
  • 23rd Street Between Pine And South Philadelphia, PA - Fitler Square

    A few potholes were "repaired" last week, but they are in terrible shape -- lumpy, above the surface of surrounding pavement, and with holes.

    As a bicyclist, I still need to go around them.

    There are a few like this in the Pine and Spruce Street bike lanes as well.

    THIS ISSUE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ARCHIVED AS IT REMAINS A PROBLEM.

    Right next to the "no angle parking" the cars are parked at an angle, blocking the entire bike lane. Needs enforcement!

    In addition, the businesses there monopolize the bike lane with their gravel and sand, making it dangerous to travel in the bike lane, and "safer" to travel in the right-hand motor vehicle lane.

    Dangerous for cyclists, especially at night.
  • 1300 Block Of Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    #94056 has been archived but the problem has not gone away.

    Please FIX this problem -- don't just archive it. This is unsafe for bicyclists - and the store is using the public right-of-way and putting bicyclists in the way of high-speed motorists.

  • 2401 Grays Ferry Ave Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Intersection and parking have been striped, but PPA's not enforcing. Frustrating!
  • 2401 Grays Ferry Ave Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    There are no crosswalk markings and cars park in front of the curb cuts where the crosswalk should be painted. The parked cars impede view to turning motorists of pedestrians crossing, and obstruct the right of way for pedestrians. It's not safe to cross there because cars make very fast left turns from Gray's Ferry to 24th without slowing down.

    These need to be repaired. There's gravel all over the road and it looks as if work was begun and not completed. It's a real hazard, especially for bicyclists.
  • 2416 Madison Square Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Pothole repair incomplete: was filled up to two inches from surface with concrete, but team didn't return to cover with asphalt. Hole collects water since it's below grade.

  • 1300 Block Of Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Two sandwich boards announcing a furniture sale were fully blocking the bike lane today. Two days ago when I passed by there were also cars double-parked in the bike lane, and I flagged down a police car to let them know and ask them to enforce the bike lane. They seemed mildly interested, but they clearly didn't really scare these guys into changing their behavior.

    Right next to the "no angled parking" the entire block has cars parked at an angle, blocking the bike lane. Needs enforcement!
  • 724 S 24th St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    Southbound cars on Grays Ferry make left turns onto 24th at full speed, ignoring pedestrians attempting to cross 24th Street. Also, as there is no crosswalk painted, cars park in the crosswalk, in front of the curb cuts -- and they are not ticketed. These parked cars reduce visibility of pedestrians by left-turning cars.

    A start would be to paint the crosswalk. A better solution would be to narrow down the intersection so that the turning radius is tighter, forcing cars to slow down.

    This is very dangerous!

    Huge pothole on one-lane street makes the street treacherous.
  • 22nd & Lombard Philadelphia, PA - Fitler Square
    Cars are chronically parked in the bike lane here, causing bicyclists to ride in the motor vehicle lane. Most common offenders are the police! Recently I saw vehicle 1721 in this zone.
