  • Russell Field/Dudley&Clifton Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    Now that fall sports started, the illegal parking on the park green grass space accessed from Clifton Str -- by the youth coaches/parents ? -- has started. Yesterday, a car was driving down the pedestrian path -- where there is no place for pedestrians to jump out of the way because of the park construction. And at least 3 other cars were already parked illegally. PLEASE -- EVEN WHEN THIS IS HAPPENING IN NON M-F 9-5 HOURS -- PLEASE CONTROL THE ILLEGAL PARKING AS IT'S NOT A ROAD, IT'S A PEDESTRIAN PATH. (Thanks and I didn't mean to shout.)

    This construction site uses these well travelled bike lanes for truck parking every morning and it’s a major hazard.

    Can a ticket be issued based on this photo? I know Cambridge police is allowed to ticket on photos. This Uber driver refused to leave the bike lane. I pulled over to inform him that this was dangerous. He told me that "you cyclists are no saints", asked me "where [my] ticket book is", and then rolled up his window and stayed. Since he doesn't think he did anything wrong due to the lack of a ticket, can we help him out on that front?

    The same cars parked in this bike lane as are parked in the bike lane every morning! Why isn't there ever any ticketing here?
  • 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.

    Illegally parked truck, blocking the bike lane. This is the same truck in the same location at approximately the same time (8:00 a.m.) as yesterday - either CPD wasn't able to issue a citation yesterday or the company doesn't care. As with yesterday, today I called CPD at the time of the illegal parking.
  • 980 Memorial Dr Cambridge, MA - West Cambridge
    Heading westbound on Memorial Drive in Cambridge and all of a sudden there are cars parked in the right lane. There are no signs to warn you about this and I see people _all_the_time_ swerving in the left lane at the last second. I am frankly surprised that I haven't seen more accidents there. Either put a sign up to warn the drivers in the right lane, or prohibit parking on that stretch of road.
  • 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?

  • 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.
  • 1501 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
