    Trash bins STILL blocking sidewalk. I've placed them in the road so pedestrians can pass.

    21 Kinross Rd Boston, MA 02135, USA - Allston-Brighton
    Vehicle speed is still a major issue on Kinross and Lanark. Several years of requests from residents on this street have resulted in no changes, or even surveys of speed, along these roads. The road is far too wide before the intersection with Lanark, and drivers gain a lot of speed crossing Comm Ave from Wallingford. I've witnessed several near collisions with children, elderly adults, pets, and even traffic cones in the street. This is unsafe, especially around evening commute hours and late at night.

    "Yield to pedestrians" crosswalk sign is detached. Given that drivers already travel far faster than is safe here, and little to no enforcement is seen from BPD, the absolute minimum of traffic calming, even in a form as simple as a knockdown sign, is essential. More calming is absolutely needed for the safety of vulnerable road users here, but this sign must be replaced as soon as possible.

    Fix this bike lane!!! Most drivers in this photo moved when I asked them too, but they all initially stopped in the lane. Nearby transit police officer sympathized, but he can only do so much. No wonder no one is riding here. Cars zipping past as I tried to pass these vehicles. Amazed no one hit me. Someone will be killed by this bike lane, it's a matter of when.

    It's nine thirty on Friday night, and there's a bunch of cars just parked in the bike lane with flashers on. What is the plan to protect riders here? It's raining, dark, and someone's gonna get hit by a speeding driver while trying to pass around these parked vehicles.
  • 2609 Beacon St Boston, MA 02135, USA - Allston-Brighton
    Many drivers still ignore the red arrow when turning right from Beacon St to Chestnut Hill Ave, often without stopping before turning. The crosswalk is still dangerous to use even with a walk signal, as motorists will speed around the corner without visibility, or worse, try to pass another driver who correctly waits for the light.
  • 2002 Beacon St Boston, MA 02135, USA - Allston-Brighton
    Cars still enter Sutherland Rd loop the wring way, often to bypass red light. Needs an actual disincentive to stop this behavior.
  • Nw 21 St & Nw 37 Av Florida 33142, USA - US Congressional District FL18
    No crosswalk to get from train to go south on 37th. Pedestrians also must cross 37th with no light. I thought I had the cross, because the perpendicular light turned red, but half way across I realized the opposite side was still green as a car shot through right ahead of me.

    This traffic light needs enforcement. In one walk to and from the corner store at around 9:30pm, I watched not one, but two cars fly through red lights along Comm Ave at speed. One flew through about four or five seconds after the light changed, WHILE I WAS IN THE CROSSWALK. This driving isn't uncommon. It happens almost daily. How many pedestrian deaths on Comm Ave until we can get some enforcement or some traffic calming. What are they average speeds here? How frequently are red lights run? Does the city have any data on this?
