The bike lanes on Spruce st. are barely a month old, and already they are being plagued by illegal parking, stopping, idling.
does a good job documenting parking + idling with eyes on the street, addresses, and photos
What can we do to get parking enforced? Are the neighborhoods on board?
Here are a few complaints about Spruce:

2214 South St philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill SouthwestThere are always parked (not idling) cars outside of Phoebe's BBQ. I don't think there has been one rush hour that the lane hasn't been blocked there. Please be considerate and not park your car in the bike lane.
310 W Chelten Avenue Philadelphia, PA - Germantown
Pulaski partners has had the sidewalk closed for weeks, forcing pedestrians out beyond the row of parked cars into the bike lane.
There is also no clearance between the fence and septa bus parking, forcing peds into busy traffic in front of idling buses.
I want the PPD and LI to investigate. I will forward this issue to the feds as an ADA compliance issue.
City Council, we're fed up with your inaction. You push your pet projects but provide no oversight. DRM, what happened to abiding by your oath of office? You represent the builders and lawyers but blatantly ignore your constituents.

1740 South Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
Many ambulances have idled for no reason. Sometimes the driver of the ambulance will even get out and leave the engine running.
I've decided to report each instance in hopes that something will happen.
I did not get the company name of the latest ambulance, but the number of the company was on the side 215-332-1509. The ambulance number on the side was 422-8. When I called the company after the ambulance had been out there for an hour idling, they called the driver, who moved the ambulance before I could get the name of the company.
I've called many ambulance companies and have found that some are responsive and some not.
I feel that I am too frequently needing to ask drivers to turn off engines or calling ambulance companies to get them to do so.
