  • 1629 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    the snow from the bike lanes has been piled in one of the parking spaces on Roberts Rd. I would appreciate a schedule for when it will be removed as there is only a limited number of parking spaces available
  • 1 Alewife Ctr Cambridge 02140, United States - North Cambridge
    This construction site uses these well travelled bike lanes for truck parking every morning and it’s a major hazard.
  • 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?

  • 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.
  • 35 Cambridgepark Dr Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    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?
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 35 Berkshire St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - Wellington-Harrington
    The earth walls of the foundation recently dug (and abandoned due to COVID-19) at 35 Berkshire St are eroding underneath the adjacent sidewalk (pictured) and parking lot access road. I don't know how close either are to collapsing, but it seems like a serious hazard.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
