    Between 9am and 5pm Pennsylvania Hospital shuttle buses routinely idle until their scheduled departure. Very often 2 shuttle buses idling at the same time on southern side of Delancey adjacent to parking garage. Idling time ranges from 5 to 15 minutes. This shuttle bus stop has had idling vehicles for 2-3 years.
  • 150-198 Avenue Of The Arts Philadelphia, PA 19102, USA - City Center West
    While bicycling across Broad St. on Walnut St. with the green traffic light a motorist in a dark blue Mercedes with plate BOB4UK was headed southbound on Broad and swerved into Walnut, cut me off by inches, and turned right onto Walnut street. The driver then sped extremely fast down Walnut St. in an apparent fit of road rage.
  • S Watts St Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    For the past month, Sumo Sushi's dumpster has moved away from all of the other dumpsters, and into the middle of the alley. Sometimes, due to this move, it winds up in the middle of the street. This in turn makes it impossible for cars to get through the street to their garages. The dumpster needs to be permanently placed back to where it is supposed to be, right on the corner of Watts and Pine, where all the other trash dumpsters are located.
  • 133-199 S 8th St Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA - Old City
    Harassment and rage: The driver of a silver Lexus SUV (plate: YAN999) was traveling behind me, heading south on 8th Street. The driver rapidly accellerated towards me, then honked while slamming on their breaks and stopping just short of my rear wheel. The driver ran a red light in order to catch up to me and do this a total of 3 times between Chestnut and Locust Streets. I decided to slow my speed, hoping the driver would pass: While there was plenty of room to pass, the driver intentionally swerved towards me. I had to swerve dangerously close to parked cars to avoid being hit.
  • 300-398 S Watts St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - City Center East
    This is my 2nd report. The first one was acknowledged but was NEVER fixed (2-3 months ago). The sinkhole has now started taking over the sidewalk and the nearby pipes in its path. If anyone runs over the pipes sticking out, its going to be BAD news. Everyone that gets their car in and out of the alley to and from their garages has to pull up onto the sidewalk in order to avoid this. PLEASE FIX ASAP.
  • 1300 Wood Street Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA - Callowhill
    Drivers, bikers, and pedestrians heading east on Wood Street are unable to see cross traffic heading north on 13th Street due to vehicles (often U-Haul trucks from the adjacent facility) parked on the west side of 13th Street. Parking should not be allowed here, or, alternatively, a mirror should be installed on the northeast corner to allow visibility.
  • 300-398 S Watts St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - City Center East
    This sinkhole has been in this street for almost 2 years. The city "repaired" something, and never fully re-filled the hole. Now, it is getting deeper and deeper each day. It needs to be repaired and filled ASAP. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SNOW FROM THIS YEAR OR LAST YEAR. Soon enough, cars are either going to get stuck or sustain damage while trying to get in and out of their garages.
  • 1205 Spruce St Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    It's been parked in the bike lane for more than an hour with the engine running. Bicyclists have to divert and other trucks can hardly get past.
  • 312-318 Brown Street Philadelphia, PA 19123, USA - Northern Liberties
    We have reported this sinkhole to Philadelphia Streets Department numerous times. We get no where. When a tragic accident occurs due to this sinkhole and one a few feet away (patched with a meta plate), we have the names to blame. Ridiculous.
  • 13th And Filbert Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    Cabs treat the right turn lane on 13th just south of Filbert as overflow parking for the cab stand at the hotel. Cars trying to make a right turn get stuck behind these cabs and then veer out into the bike lane unpredictably.
