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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
