Notified About

  • 8649 Orion Ave north hills, CA - North Hills
    There is no red curb at the intersection of Orion ave and Milky Way. Its very dangerous pulling making a turn onto Orion from Milky Way. Exact location is 8649 Orion ave in North Hills, 91343.
  • 18300 Chase St San Fernando Valley, CA 91325, USA - Northridge
    Ever since this area has been repaved, I have noticed many incidences of cars not stopping at this intersection. I have personally came close to getting hit by these cars. I feel that if the "STOP" lettering were re-painted on the street surface, these incidences would be reduced.
  • 20051 Ventura Blvd. Woodland Hills, CA 91364-2646 , Los Angeles, CA - Woodland Hills
    Behind the businesses at the stated address there is an illegal homeless camp with at least 20 people set up. The camp (which includes tarps, tents, clothes lines, shopping carts, trash bags, etc) can bee seen when you enter the 101 south at Winnetka. The homeless citizens can be seen daily pan handling on the 101 south exit on Winnetka.
  • 6800-6852 Valley Cir Blvd West Hills, CA 91307, USA - US Congressional District CA30
    On Valley Circle just north of Vanowen (outside the soccer/baseball fields), in the left lane heading north there is a significant and sudden dip in the road, like a reverse speedbump, for the car's left tire. I believe this is a hazard and can cause damage to the cars driving past, and could possibly even cause an accident. Please take a look and see if you agree. Thank you so much!
  • Devonshire St. And Hayvenhurst St. - Granada Hills
    There is a pothole at the intersection of Devonshire and Hayvenhurst. The pothole is on the South side of the intersection. Pothole is almost unavoidable when making a left hand turn from westbound Devonshire to southbound Hayvenhurst.
  • 20916 Abalar Woodland Hills/Los Angeles, CA - Woodland Hills
    The street is broken up, and now there is a deep pothole, approx. 4 inches deep and 10 x 14 inches wide. This presents a danger to vehicles and people (if someone steps in it, they could sprain or break an ankle).
  • 9225 Topanga Canyon Boulevard Chatsworth CA - California - Chatsworth

    Good Afternoon -- I have written before but nothing has been done about what I feel is a VERY DANGEROUS issue.

    Topanga Canyon Boulevard, SOUTHBOUND (and, to some extent, Northbound), between Lassen Street and Nordhoff Street has been and continues to be a VERY DANGEROUS stretch of road. We have lived in the Nantucket Creek Apartments for almost 2 years and have become aware of NUMEROUS accidents (at least 5 I can think of) -- And some of them are VERY BAD -- one woman, I was told, died from her injuries.

    At this very moment, there are at least 3 or 4 cars JUST along the stretch outside our apartment (between Prairie and Nordhoff) -- these cars have been there [undriveable due to horrible wrecks] for weeks and months on end -- last year a couple of cars sat there (again undriveable] for over 3-4 months before they were finally moved.

    We believe one cause of many of these accidents is the fact that 3 lanes turn into two between Lassen Street and Prairie (just 1/4 block north of the our apartment complex entrance), which causes many SPEEDING motorists to have to veer over into other cars in order NOT to hit the cars ahead of them -- but many times, they are unsuccessful. One tenant told us their car had been sideswiped TWICE within one week, they believe, by drunk drivers who, again, must not have realized how quickly the road goes from 3 lanes to 2.

    I am attaching some pictures I took, which you'll need to zoom in on to see the extent of the damage. This was our most recent two (or was it 3 accidents).

    If there is nothing you can do, PLEASE PLEASE let me know who I can turn to for help! Thank you.

    19138 Hartland Street Reseda/Los Angeles, California - Reseda
    Overgrown front yard - weeds over 3 feet high. Untreated swimming pool in back yard. I believe property is involved in a court dispute by the heirs but no one is taking care of the grounds and swimming pool.
  • 21840 Ventura Blvd Wood Land Hills Ca - Woodland Hills
    A group of about 10 or so homeless people have started sleeping in the parking lot located at the rear of the goodwill store. The problem is made worse by people leaving donation there overnight. The homeless steal the donations and make a big mess. They enter the store and shoplift and they shoplift from the liquor store next door. They harass the staff of the store and they are starting to harass the grounds keeper who tries to clean the mess they made. There are also random guys on bikes who show up and talk to the home less. Either they are drug dealers or they are buying the items the homeless are stealing. The homeless take turns panhandling by the turn lane on topanga blvd and Ventura. And the rest hang out on the grass in front of the rite aid.
