Notified About

  • 241 Perkins St. B701 Jamaica Plain, MA - Jamaica Plain
    There is absolutely no access to safe pedestrian crossing between our condominium at 241 Perkins St., Jamaica Plain (Cabot Estate) and Jamaica Pond, which is directly across the street. We are a community of 161 residences and more than 300 people living in a virtual pedestrian island. Yesterday one of our neighbors was hit a seriously injured while crossing the street. We have been trying for decades to hear "yes" from someone with the authority to give us a safe way to cross the street. We have heard lots of folks say "no, because....." but it seems illogical that there is no one who can figure out a way to permit folks in our community to safely cross the street.
  • 241 Perkins Street - Jamaica Plain
    Cabot Estate Condominiums are home to over 300 people
    who cross the 30 feet from the entrance of the complex across Perkins Street to Jamaica Pond. The crossing is hazardous because of the blind curve coming west, the recklessness of some drivers and the lack of a crosswalk and signage. On 9/10/2010 my S.O. was crossing with her dog, as she does 4 times each day, when she was struck by a distracted driver and sent to the ICU with 8 broken bones and a subdural hematoma. If she were not light and in excellent physical condition, she would have been the fatality which would get attention.
  • 309-399 Heath St Boston, MA 02130, USA - Mission Hill
    Cars driving down Heath St and turning right onto S Huntington frequently ignore the posted yield sign and green-painted bike lane and proceed through the intersection without yielding to bicyclists in the bike lane. When biking north on S Huntington in the bike lane, I have been involved in several near misses with drivers who ignore right of way and proceed unexpectedly through the intersection. There needs to be better signage or better enforcement of existing traffic laws.
  • 7-11 Sheridan St Boston, MA 02130, USA - Mission Hill
    Sheridan Street has been littered with graffiti tags that say "meow" and "cat-hill" up and down the street over the past few months. From mailboxes, to the retaining wall at 7 Sheridan to the side wall of "slice o Pie" pizza, stop signs and a for sale sign on the corner of Sheridan and Chestnut.

  • 20 Wait St Roxbury Crossing, MA 02120, USA - Mission Hill
    At the corner of Wait St. and Pequot St. there is a Verizon telephone box. Water drains continuously past this box, on to the sidewalk and into the street towards Huntington Ave. Once cold weather starts, this ices over and makes the sidewalk dangerously slick. People have fallen and been injured.

  • Ruggles St Wentworth Institute of Technology, Boston, MA 02115, USA - Jamaica Plain
    I witnessed one accident and two almost accidents in 10 minutes. 5:00-5:10. A few weeks ago I was almost hit crossing the street (I had a walk signal)
  • 815 Centre St Boston, MA - Jamaica Plain
    Centre St was resurfaced last year. It was raised higher than the roads off of Centre are lower so that when it rains, massive puddles form at the the crosswalks because the water pools near the drains it can't reach. This is true at the corner of Dunster and Centre Sts and at Holbrook and Centre Sts.
