East eagle St. East Boston ma.02128 American Legion playground. On East eagle St. right before condor St. the 18 wheelers from the fish market are driving up the one way to turn around to pull into a spot at fish market or a 18 wheelers drives down East eagle St and can't clear the wires, so it keeps hitting them. This is happening every week there's a wire hanging from being hit by a truck that can't clear it. Is there any way a sign can be put up showing how the height that can't pass by the w

  • 183 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA, 02115, USA - Fenway-Kenmore

    K&M Transportation, RI plate # 90474 parked in bike lane on 4/1/19 at approximately 9 AM. There was a taxi also parked in the bike lane at this time.

    I ride through here every day, and about 50% of the time, there is someone parked here. Please replace all the flexposts to make sure there is a BARRIER preventing cars from using this lane as extra parking. The other side of Mass Ave is exactly the same issue - flexposts are gone, so it becomes a free parking or uber dropoff lane.

    134 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA, 02115, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    3 cars parked in bike lane this morning during commuting hours due to missing flexposts all along both sides of Mass ave. Why have these not been replaced?

    Bike lane completely blocked by constant stream of cars, Boston Police drive by without doing anything. Please fix this before someone is killed.

    the escalator coming up from Park Street breaks about once every two weeks. I never know it's broken until I'm off the train. while I can use stairs, it's difficult for me and I wish I at least had some warning. an announcement by the conductor would be great. Fixing the escalator so it doesn't break so often would be even better.

    This lamp post (which has no lamp attached) is located smack in the middle of the bicycle path. I ride by there almost daily. The other night, with strong headlights from oncoming car traffic, I almost ran into it even though I know it well. It’s time that it gets removed, it’s been there for years. At the very least could you have a crew do something so it’s visible at night? Thanks.
  • Broken Sidewalk Acknowledged

    Extremely dangerous obstruction on bike path. Impossible to see at night against oncoming car lights. At thee rly least, place a cone!
  • Snow in Bike Lane Acknowledged
    121 Seaport Blvd Boston, MA 02210, USA - South Boston
    It is absolutely ridiculous and embarrassing that
    there is still snow in the protected bike lanes on seaport Blvd. About 50% in both directions is unusable due to snow blocking the entrance or large amounts of snow elsewhere in the bike lane. There's almost zero snow in the entire city and yet this still hasn't been addressed. It shows a complete lack of interest in supporting the protected bike infrastructure the city installed. The bike infrastructure in the seaport looks like the city wanted to check a box but doesn't care about the cyclists at all. I'm so disappointed.
  • 100 Tremont St Boston, MA 02108, USA - Central

    Tremont Street's left lane is a travel lane, with posted "No stopping any time" signs. This holiday season's installation of wreaths obstructs many of these signs.

    As my request comes after Christmas day, I suggest an early removal of these wreaths, and to have guidelines in place for future years.

  • 47a Massachusetts Ave Boston 02115, United States - Back Bay
    Large bus from Local Motion company parked illegally for at least ten minutes. No active loading of passengers. Partially blocking MBTA stop and fully blocking access to the protected bike lane. All of the work to create these lanes, plow them, etc is completely wasted if there is no enforcement. BPD refuses to enforce even if I call them (and when I was intentionally assaulted by a vehicle.) Also a recurrent issue with this company. Submitted another report for a different bus parked at the same time blocking bus stop and bike lane at MIT. This city obviously does not care about cyclists and will continue to have deaths until something changes!!

    At the time of this report, there are three cars sitting in the bike lane with their blinkers going. This report isn't a request for enforcement (which is why I am not labeling it "illegal Parking"), is a request to fix the bike lane. As is, this bike lane is unusable because it is an open invitation to drivers to use it to pull over. This isn't a bike lane, it's a temporary parking lane, where anyone on a bicycle is expected to merge into fast (and impatient) traffic. I have been personally threatened by drivers (including an armored van driver!) for asking them not to park here. "I'm just going to be a minute." "Why don't you just go around." "No one is going to ticket me here." "F*#k off, mind your own business." Don't close this ticket and say "area clear". Fix this lane before another BU student is killed just trying to get around the Boston metro area. The longer you leave this, the more drivers will feel that they have every right to park here. I would like to be able to commute home without worrying whether I'll make it alive. Is avoiding flex posts here for plowing and delivery reasons worth my life?
  • 54-82 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA, 02115, USA - Back Bay
    MA 9AG 934 parked in bike lane during commuting hours.. there were several other cars also parked on Mass Ave - this is the only one I managed to get a photo of. Please station an officer here to ticket these offenders.
  • Traffic Signal Acknowledged
    Cambridge St Allston, MA, 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    There are two traffic signals on Cambridge Street located within a short distance. Can you adjust the timing of these two signals to be in sync for a longer period of time to allow for sufficient traffic flow? A majority of the traffic is coming off of the Pike into Cambridge. One light is often red while the other is green and cars are sitting there at the lights because there is nowhere to go unless both lights are obviously green at the same time. When both lights are green at the same time it is only for a few seconds. Adjusting the timing could seriously help with the traffic jams at this intersection. Thanks!
