  • 35 Cambridge Park Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Uber and Lyft cars have been parking on the bike path outside of Cambridge Park Apartments in the morning and evenings. This is blocking traffic and making drivers drive on the wrong side of the road. The elevated bike path has only made things worse since the taxi cars now will not pull over and just park in the middle of the road.

    Hi Cambridge, it's Ian, are you listening?

    Once again there are trucks parking in the bicycle lane on Broadway between Hampshire St and Galileo Galilei Way. I've attached a picture of the truck showing the license plate, as well as the back of a sign that says:

    TOW ZONE
    NO
    STOPPING
    ANY TIME

    I think the sign is pretty clear, no stopping means no stopping, right? But the trucks are stopping and obstructing traffic. So let's take some action. I'd like to either see some bollards put up to prevent trucks from stopping here, or I'd like to see you removing the bike lane striping and put a "LOADING ZONE" sign in so that everyone is aware that this is a legal loading zone. I'd prefer bollards, but let's be real here, if you'd rather this stretch of road be a loading zone that's fine, just mark it as such so I expect to have to fight for my life while biking through this critical connector to Kendall Square.

    I don't want a generic "This is being looked into" response. I'd like to talk to someone about what we can do to take some serious action here. If you're interested in bollards but not convinced they'll help let's trial it with orange traffic cones for a week.

  • 6th St Cambridge, MA, USA - East Cambridge
    I find it incredibly hard to find parking on 6th St as residents are using space savers (chairs, stools, trash can) to reserve shoveled parking spots.
  • 16 Trowbridge St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    There are delivery vehicles, moving trucks, uber/lyft cars and residents parking on the bike lane in Trowbridge Street on a daily basis forcing bikes to enter dangerous traffic. How/where can we submit a request to dedicate 2 or 4 parking spots in Trowbridge street permanently as loading zone? I think this is the only way to solves this dangerous situation in the long run.
  • Green St & Pleasant St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Riverside

    Thank you for installing electric chargers in some of the parking lots in Cambridge. This is something great and very important!

    The problem is that numerous times these Electric Vehicle (EV) spots are occupied by non-EV (gasoline) cars! :((
    There have been times that I was unable to charge my EV car because these spots were blocked by non-EV cars.

    While the drivers are also to blame, we can do a better job explaining to them this new concept. For example, see the attached image from one of the 2 parking lots in Green st. & Pleasant st. There is no sign on the charger, and there is some mark with a thin chalk on the ground. The problem with the thin chalk is that it is completely invisible when there is snow or ice, or when it is dark (any time of the year).

    What we need is something like the chargers in the Union Square parking lot in Somerville: "Electric Vehicles only". Adding a note that the car may be otherwise towed would definitely help. Once we have such signs, enforcing this rule (the same way we efficiently enforce expired parking) would be totally justified.

    Many thanks,
    Tasos

    Cars and delivery vehicles pose a perpetual danger to cyclists and motorists by using the bike lane as a temporary parking space. Not only do bicyclists have to merge into traffic, but vehicles often have to cross the stripe into oncoming traffic to go around the violating vehicle. Hazard lights shouldn't get you out of breaking the law and endangering your neighbors.
  • 23 Cushing St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Cambridge
    Someone has painted parking stalls, lane striping, and directional arrows near the intersection of Cushing and Belmont streets.

    Isn't it illegal in Cambridge to rent out a residential parking space? This is the Norfolk St side of property.
  • 20 Gray St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    This "no parking" sign was stapled directly on to our house -- the sign should not be stapled to private property.
  • Alewife Station Access Road Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridge

    Northbound of two-way (T station side) before one-way to Rte 2/Rte 16:

    Cars constantly use the bike lane here. I'm in the designated car lane every day and I see cars coming down this street or pulling out of the T station parking lot into the bike lane.

    The traffic is always awful here, especially now that there is construction on the one-way section going to the highway. HOWEVER, that is no excuse for cars to use the bike lane. I don't know how this can be fixed, but I really don't want a cyclist getting clipped -- or worse -- at this spot! Maybe some anchored flexible traffic delineators would do the trick?

  • 82 Mt Auburn St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Riverside
    God forbid we should use a parking space to pile snow rather than the nice new bike lane. Cars deserve parking. People can fight over the scraps.
