  • Angle Parking Archived
    1200-1300 Shunk Street Philadelphia, PA - South Philadelphia
    On Shunk St. between 12th and 13th there are signs indicating angle parking on the North side of Shunk however there is no angle parking lines and it is not enforced. Cars coming out of 2600 S. Isminger St. have difficulty because they cannot see oncoming traffic... this has caused many accidents...HELP
  • 1000-1098 W Ritner St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - South Philadelphia
    All the houses on this street park on the sidewalk in front of their garages, 365 days a year. They angle in towards the house so there is NO clearance for wheelchairs/strollers. Reported this issue to PPA and was told the street was "not a targeted enforcement area". What gives? This is illegal and unfair to handicapped people!
  • 1948 S 12th St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - South Philadelphia

    The concrete pad next to the SEPTA trolley tracks is sinking (possibly from the weight of the buses). The asphalt to the right (west) of this concrete is several inches higher. There is a 10' long section just north of McKean Street where the asphalt forms this 'ledge'.

    If you bump along this with your bike tire, it's like hitting a wall (sideways). I've seen three bike accidents and have reported the issue to 311 to no avail.

  • 1021 Synder Ave - South Philadelphia
    Rocco's Collision chronically uses the bike lane as a temporary parking lot in the mornings between 8:00 and 9:00
  • 2129 S 8th St Philadelphia, PA - South Philadelphia

    This auto repair place is still consistently using the sidewalk as their personal parking lot, sometimes working on cars out there rather than inside their garage.

    Was previously told by 311 to "call 911" when this happens. Surely someone can see what an idiotic solution that is. This needs parking enforcement, not emergency responders.

  • Dudley St Philadelphia, PA - South Philadelphia
    Approx 8 X 10 area of a garage door to the Bok School vandalized with graffiti. Roughly across the street from 828 Dudley. Separate graffiti tag of MS:13 on Bok School.Roughly across from 802 Dudley.
  • 508 Pierce St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - Pennsport-Whitman-Queen
    We need a two way street sign or to have the painted divider lines repainted at the intersection of Tasker and Columbus Blvd. For the 5th time in 2 months I have started to turn right onto Tasker from Columbus only to find the street blocked by a drivers who are treating the road like a one way intersection. This is very dangerous for turning traffic as well a buses. The 29 bus drives straight across Columbus onto Tasker and this could cause an accident.

  • 3601 S Broad St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - Marconi Plaza-Packer Park
    Almost every morning I see cars making left turns onto Broad Street when their light is RED. Two days ago I almost got into a sever accident because of a car turning on a red light into oncoming green light traffic there needs to be a camera or a cop posted to to deter this
  • 11th St & Moore St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista
    While riding bike in the rain, the front tire hit the trolley tracks and spun out. Ended up crashing into a parked car.
  • 2500 Blk S. 2nd St Philadelphia, PA - Pennsport-Whitman-Queen
    This is a lot which has several properties. They are woned by different people as well as 2 lots by the city. THe weeds grow outrageous. Call 311 and nothing. I know there is debris as well as other items which cannot be seen. This is a hazard.
