  • Arlington, VA - Ballston-Virginia Square

    I drop my husband at an office building at 3803 North Fairfax Drive in Arlington several times a week. It is impossible to get to the kerb to drop him because there is a long line of orange cones marking off the parking lane, preventing parking or stopping there -- there are No Parking signs along this area of the street, but apparently the cones are considered important items. I could accept the cones, but every day, all day -- when I drop him and when I pick him up -- there is a police car parked behind the cones, with a real live police officer within. Also, the same situation pertains on the side street, which I believe is Nelson Street. Why is it so important to prevent people from parking here that we need to send two fulltime police officers and their patrol cars to spend all day here? This is an ongoing situation, and I have observed this for more than a year now.

    By the way, my husband is physically handicapped, and it is quite difficult for him to reach the kerb from the car because I am forced to pull up in the righthand traffic lane, AND block the pedestrian crossing. Arlington County, what's the story here? Is parking control so important that it requires not only No Parking signs, traffic cones, AND two police officers in official cars?

  • 4639 20th Place N arlington, va - Waverly Hills
    We haven't had a street sign for 20th Place ever since the county did work on Woodrow Street some years ago. I have reported this several times.
  • 12th St S Arlington, VA - Douglas Park
    The intersection of S. Highland and 12th St. S. needs a traffic circle like the one a block south at 11th St. It's hard to see oncoming traffic when trying to turn onto Highland.
  • 4304 N Arlington Blvd Arlington, VA - Alcova Heights

    The exit signs on Route 50 are tiny and way off to the side. They're also placed just before the exit.

    This leads to a lot of last-minute swerving -- we're talking a four-lane road, people -- and could be solved with an additional sign a ways before each exit.

    NOTE: I'm not terribly geriatric, these signs are tiny for a highway

  • Virginia 27 & Columbia Pike & S Washington Blvd Arlington, VA - Foxcroft Heights
    Construction has eliminated an acceleration lane. I've seen cars coming from the westbound Columbia Pike to East/South Washington Blvd. enter the right lane without stopping or yielding. One almost hit me and I've seen it happen to other drivers. We had to slam on our brakes to prevent an accident. The "yield" sign needs to be immediately replaced by several "stop" signs with signs warning those drivers about the stop.
  • Jefferson Davis Hwy Arlington, VA - Arlington
    current signage is not clear enough for northbound traffic to know which lane to be in before either going towards the pentagon or going across the 14th street bridge to DC. Near accidents happen every day.
  • Army Navy Dr Arlington, VA - Arlington
    I travel up and down Army Navy Drive as part of my daily commute. Recently the timing of the lights has changed, causing me to sit and wait through two full lights, adding nearly five minutes to my commute. Previous to this change, if you made the first light and traveled the speed limit, you would make green lights all the way to 395. Coming home on the same street means the same wait time. It makes no sense.
  • 1533 28th St S Arlington, VA 22206, USA - Long Branch Creek
    Black Toyota celiac plate VA-jhg-1496 has been left unattended and with a flat tire for almost 2 months and is parked in a manor that takes up more than one space on a street with limited spaces free.
  • 901 16th St S Arlington, VA 22202, USA - Aurora Highlands

    The path that leads from the neighborhood park toward the mall and metro has a 3' diameter depression in it that collects water. You have to step into the mud to avoid the puddle when it rains. In the winter, ice forms and creates a hazard. This is a main communter path.

    Walking from the 16th St. follow the path toward the park. After you go down the small slope and cross the path that runs from Joyce St to the soccer field, the depression is in front of you.

    This path was recently paved, and the contractor should come back and fix the problem.

  • N Park Drive & N George Mason Crive Arlington, VA - Buckingham
    This pedestrian crossing is one block from the elementary school. Despite new signs, cars never stop at the pedestrian crossing. Maybe if they get fines, they would consider stopping for Pedestrians
  • 1724 Columbia Pike Arlington, VA - Penrose
    County police set up a trap very often to catch unsuspecting drivers going straight on Columbia Pike from the right lane during morning rush hour. Signage and road markings are difficult to read with small print and do not stand out. The idea is that drivers should be able to turn right onto the 395 onramp from the left lane, but it is a poorly designed idea; rarely do people turn right from the left lane because they know it is dangerous to do so. The idea may work in theory but does not work in practice. The county should eliminate this ridiculous rush hour turn lane system and remove the police trap along with it.
  • 3227-3251 Washington Blvd Arlington, VA 22201, USA - Lyon Village
    Road in bad shape. Restriping necessary. And lane ID lights need to be bright enough so that you can see them in the setting sun.
