Notified About

  • Damaged Sign Acknowledged
    Soldiers Field Road Boston, MA 02135, USA - Allston-Brighton
  • 74 N Harvard St Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    There is NO STOPPING in front of the gates at the Harvard Muir/Pool buildings, and yet every day entitled yupsters park in the bike lane, endangering cyclists and also blocking half of this very narrow causeway for motorists in order to drop off their coddled progeny. What makes this doubly ridiculous is the fact that they drive another 50 yards and enter the SECOND gate, at the Stadium, in order to turn around. Please post NO STOPPING, DO NOT BLOCK BIKE LANE signs. This also goes for UPS and FEDEX vehicles. There is no reason why all these vehicles can't go the extra 50 yards and drop off their cargo via the Stadium parking lot.
  • Soldiers Field Rd Boston, MA 02163, USA - Allston-Brighton
    As you exit here for Harvard Square, it's not clear if it's a two lane exit or a single lane exit. Perhaps on purpose? As you can see in the overhead image, the lane marking diverges slightly to possibly indicate a two lane exit. Or not? We don't know. The lane markings end before we can find out.
  • 258-298 Brighton Ave Boston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    Vehicles in the left turn lane on Brighton Ave ignore their left turn only signs and cut-off vehicles in the right lane that are heading straight onto North Beacon Street. Motorists us the left turn lane(s) to cut-off the traffic in the right lane.
  • 57 Nottinghil Rd Brighton, MA - Allston-Brighton
    Couple need help to clear their car of snow in the driveway… and clear the sidewalk so they can get out.
  • I don't drive in the city very often, but I take the T at this stop every day, and there are two potholes alongside the stop that fill up with water whenever there's precipitation. Guess what happens whenever someone drives over them... I don't like going to work covered in muddy water.
  • Kenrick St Boston, MA - Allston-Brighton
    THIS WHOLE STREET IS A TREACHEROUS OBSTACLE COURSE IN THE AM!! (Left unfixed for several years now!!)
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    Cambridge Street Boston, Massachusetts - Allston-Brighton
    The fast lanes at the toll booth getting on the mass pike from Cambridge. The metal drain gate areas a large potholes that need to be fixed
  • Foster Street Brighton, MA - Allston-Brighton
    There is a wire hanging from a telephone pole near the corner of Foster and Comm. In addition, the telephone pole at the corner of Comm. is leaning over and looks like it's ready to fall.
  • 56 Gardner St Allston, MA 02134, USA - Allston-Brighton
    The streetlight at the intersection of Gardner street and Chester street is broken. The street is extremely dark.
  • 353 Cambridge Street - Allston-Brighton
    There has been at least one FATALITY at this intersection. Another post shows that 18 people want this fixed already, and that's just the people using this website. People making a left turn from the Northern part of Harvard Ave onto Cambridge street act like they have a protected left turn when they don't. Do you need another death to put up some clear notification preventing people from doing this, and stepping up enforcement?
  • curb cut Archived
    N Harvard St & Soldiers Field Rd Boston, MA - Allston-Brighton
    This curb cut is already on a hill, which makes it even more too steep than it would have been. I can't get up it in my wheelchair. Ordinarily I go up steep slopes at an angle, but it's too narrow and cracked, so I walk in the road across the bridge, but I'd rather not.
