  • 1040-1046 Broadway Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    This intersection is set up in a extremely confusing way. Drivers in the lane second from the left are seemingly in a left turn only lane heading towards Carolan. However, most of them continue straight down Broadway to turn left on California seemingly running a red light in the process. Cars in the lane second from the right seemingly have the right of way but they have to shift to the left, putting them in the path of the cars running the red light. These drivers don't seem to realize they are running a red light and the intersection is so confusing I'm not even sure what is correct. I've already been in two near misses. Please figure out a way to make this interaction clearer, perhaps with cones separating the correct lanes?
  • Traffic Concerns Acknowledged
    1234-1266 California Dr Burlingame, CA, 94010, USA - Burlingame
    In this area of southbound California drive, especially during rush hour, vehicles routinely drive in the bike lane to pass waiting traffic. Vehicles in the southbound direction also routinely drive into oncoming traffic in order to get into the two left-hand turn lanes to proceed east on Broadway. Traffic delineators need to be erected in order to prevent this issue or at least more traffic enforcement.
  • 1512 Adeline Drive Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    The north sidewalk on Adeline between El Camino and Balboa is partially blocked by think hedges. This is a major route for kids to walk to school, but it is impossible to walk two abreast or even easy to push a wide pram.
  • 1316-1320 Sanchez Ave Burlingame, CA 94010, USA - Burlingame
    Now that the Paloma playground is complete it is imperative that either end of this block of Paloma is as safe as possible. The intersection of Paloma and Edgehill is already an All way stop. But Paloma and Sanchez is only a partial. Several families cross here with young children. And there is virtually no visibility of oncoming traffic on Paloma whatsoever. It is dangerous.
  • 1072-1076 Broadway Burlingame, CA 94010, USA - Burlingame
  • 1329 Sanchez Ave Burlingame 94010, United States - Burlingame
    Impossible to see around the corner from Paloma if cars or trucks are allowed all the way up to a small intersection. This corner needs a one space red zone.
  • 1480 Highway Rd Burlingame, CA 94010, USA - Burlingame
    Please consider painting the unmarked crosswalk crossing Oxford at Highway Rd. Plenty of school children and their parents cross here daily. Although there is a crosswalk right next to El Camino Real, practically no one crosses there because it's right next to high speed traffic. The unmarked crosswalk that almost everyone uses connects the east sidewalk along Highway Rd. I don't believe this is Caltrans so it would be up to City of Burlingame to do. Please consider painting that unmarked crosswalk.
  • 1049 Broadway Burlingame, California - Burlingame

    Ever since Caltrans (the city?) created a 2nd left turn only lane from Broadway onto Carolan I have constantly witnessed multiple vehicles in the 2nd from the left lane ignore the street and overhead markings designating the lane as left turn only and proceeding straight across the tracks to the left turn lane onto California.

    **My request is to please install semi-permanent cones/structures on Broadway at Carolan to force these vehicles to obey the law and turn left onto Carolan. Every time I am heading west on Broadway in the proper lane to proceed through the light at Carolan and then legally move into the left turn lane to turn left onto California it is a constant game of having to check and see how many vehicles realize they are in a left turn only lane and simply ignore the law and go straight ahead into the left turn lane for California. I imagine much of this issue is being caused by the fact that the current 2nd from the left turn lane at Carolan used to be, prior to the interchange construction, the lane used by drivers who wished to turn left onto California.

    I greatly appreciate your help in resolving this issue in order to improve the safety of our roads. Thanks very much.

  • 1500 & 1600 Blocks Of Howard Avenue Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    The 1500 and 1600 blocks of Howard Avenue, immediately west of El Camino, are in dire need of some sort of vehicle speed calming. Vehicles traveling east speed up to make the green light at El Camino. Vehicles traveling west from the stoplight at El Camino speed up because they've been in traffic and they see open space and accelerate. We need either a stop sign at the corner of Howard and Crescent, speed bumps, an electronic speed sign indicator or a combination. I would be happy to organize a collection of residents to meet with appropriate city employees if that would help.
    Thank you,

  • 141 California 82 Burlingame, California - Burlingame

    The sidewalk between Howard Ave and Newlands Ave on El Camino Real is very unsafe to walk. There are multiple issues:

    1) sidewalk is too low - almost level with the street (El Camino Real) at some point
    2) sidewalk is uneven / lumpy with patches
    3) sidewalk is too narrow - maybe 5 ft max.

    I feel unsafe to walk with my newborn in a stroller. Especially walking north with oncoming traffic facing us. Please fix the unevenness, raise it above the street level and widen the sidewalk.

  • 1001–1015 Cadillac Way Burlingame 94010, United States - Burlingame
    I can’t cross this intersection and get to the bike ped bridge on my bike from Cadillac bc the light does not detect my bike. I can only get the light to turn green if there are cars behind me.
  • 1101 Broadway Burlingame 94010, United States - Burlingame
    This intersection is still not working right I waited 4 light changes to turn left at 5:15 pm today from California to Broadway right by the Goodwill. Some new traffic light changes were supposed to have been made to detect cars better but it’s still terrible. Please put this intersection back the way it used to be.
