  • 54-98 N 12th St Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA - City Center East
    The abandoned trolly tracks on 12th Street are a terrific hazard for bicyclist. Aware of one serious accident at least. Tracks not only go straight but curve out to the right close to the parking lane at this location.
  • 1320-1322 Spruce St Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA - City Center East
    Cars routinely drive in them, taxis routinely pull into them well ahead of a right turn, dangerously cutting you off, delivery vans and people unloading routinely stop in them, and cars park in them en masse on the weekends. All you have to do is look at the per capita murder rate of a city to see how well managed and livable it is....

    The new 13th Street bike lane between Filbert and Arch Streets is blocked by a row of parked police cars every week day!

  • 200 Locust Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Society Hill
    Residents of Society Hill Towers dump ALL their trash into garbage chutes on each floor without seperating recycling. When you look at the huge dumpsters downstairs in the garage they are full of bottles, papers, etc that should be recycled under Philadelphia Law. The towers have a very strong PAC that appears to keep them above the law but this must be corrected, it's disgusting, illegal and filling trash landfills.
  • 800 Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    UPS, FedEx, USPS, and cars CONSTANTLY blocking bike lanes. Super dangerous and they never get ticketed. PPA should spend more time ticketing bike lanes and less stalking parking meters!
  • 150 N 13th St Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA - City Center East
    The new traffic tunnel under the convention center has a sudden lane shift and bike lane without proper notifying signage at the tunnel entrance vehicles are using the bike lane as a bypass - this is dangerous for everyone and causes confusion at the intersection of 13th and Race
