  • I-64 Eb @I-264 - Norfolk city
    double solid lines are totally ignored. sign states crossing solid double lines prohibited. This has never been enforced and is violated every few seconds during peak rush hours backing traffic up past North Hampton exit #282
  • 348 Newtown Road Virginia Beach Virginia - Northwest
    The traffic signals heading south on Newtown Road from Virginia Beach Blvd. to I-264 are not synced to create a good flow. The traffic every morning and every evening encounters multiple stops because the lights are set up to turn red as soon as a group of cars gets to it. I live in the Fair Meadows neighborhood, so I see the disruption and frustration quite a bit. I know you guys are busy managing all kinds of traffic flow, but this one is crucial since it's an entrance to both I-264 and I-64. Thanks for what you do and providing a forum for complaints.
  • Hampton Roads Beltway Norfolk, VA 23513, USA - Norfolk city
    Making the changeable lanes and the hov lanes high occupancy lanes during periods of the day is adding to the severe traffic congestion felt along area freeways. During the afternoon rush hours when these sections of roads go to 2 or more occupants there is a significant decrease in traffic along the changeable road way that it is comparable to 3am road way traffic. Removing the hov 2 or more requirement would allow for the easing of some of the traffic congestion so that those who are headed to 264 east / west and to points further south on 64 past the 264 interchange to not be tied up in traffic which increases the risk of accidents and increases fuel consumption.
  • Brambleton Ave Norfolk, VA - Norfolk city
    Weekday evenings, after 6PM, cars coming westbound down Brambleton like to make an illegal u-turn to use that on-ramp to get to the Midtown Tunnel. There is clearly a "no u-turn" sign there and these inconsiderate drivers ultimately cause a back up to the cars that ARE following the traffic rules, as there is no stop sign forcing them to stop before making said u-turn. This certainly cannot be helping the headache that has become Hampton Blvd in Ghent.
  • 5700-5734 Chesapeake Blvd Norfolk, VA 23513, USA - Norfolk city
    There are "No Parking This Side Of Street" signs here but they are too far apart. People park here all the time and don't get tickets. The police officer at our civic league said it was because the signs were too far apart to enforce. Please put up new signs before someone gets their car door ripped off or they get hit by a car.
  • 300 Monticello Ave Norfolk, VA - Norfolk city
    The signs are up. Do not drive on tracks. No Parking. No Stopping on Crosswalk. They need to be enforced. Due to the construction of the light rail, there is now one lane in each direction. There are people the turn onto Monticello and get off of the asphalt and drive down the tracks. Taxicabs park in the lane and try to wave you around them and onto the tracks. Cars park in the crosswalk in front of MacArthur Center blocking not only the crosswalk but the travel lane that you are supposed to be driving in. You can see the tire marks on the catenary pole foundations where cars have hit them while illegally driving on the tracks. The city needs to start enforcement now. If these rules are not enforced well in advance of the opening of the light rail, we will have to deal with accidents instead of minor tickets.
  • 1401-1599 Armistead Avenue Norfolk, VA 23510, USA - Norfolk city
    Stop sign missing at 16th and Armistead. It's creating traffic issues at the new chick-fil-a.
  • 1513 Sewells Point Rd Norfolk, VA 23502, USA - Norfolk city
    A turn lane & signal is greatly needed at this intersection for left hand turn vehicles. I have seen too many "close calls" on a daily basis.
  • Denver Avenue & Birch Street Norfolk, VA - Norfolk city
    The stop sign at the intersection on Denver Avenue & Birch Street is missing.
  • 649 Newtown Road Norfolk, Virginia - Northwest
    During the morning rush hour between the hours of 7am and 8am, the traffic signals going south between Virginia Beach Blvd and Highway 264 are not timed to allow a for adequate flow of traffic. In that approximately, mile stretch of road, there are 3 or 4(can't remember) traffic signals . When one light is green, the next light is still red so traffic is stagnated at a green light because the next light is still red. Then by the time that light turns green, the light you are sitting at turns red. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the highway on this little stretch of road. While on the other side of the road, there is very little traffic. Can the timing of the signals align a little better to allow for a better flow of traffic and to allow the actual red, yellow and green signals to be more useful?
  • 822-898 Monticello Ave Norfolk, VA 23510, USA - Norfolk city
    During rush hour (especially between 5 pm and 6 pm), drivers on St. Paul's Blvd. frequently block the intersection, prohibiting cars turning left from Monticello Avenue from proceeding through the intersection. The line behind which drivers should stop on St. Paul's Blvd. should be more clearly marked, and the city should add signs at this intersection reminding drivers on St. Paul's Blvd. not to block the intersection. The city should also consider an increased fine for drivers who do block the intersection.
  • 501-599 Market St Norfolk, VA 23510, USA - Norfolk city
    The no outlet sign is on the ground at the corner of Cumberland and Market. It is supposed to let people know out is not a through road. Please fix.
