There is a ridiculous amount of trash at the car pull outs on grizzly Peak. Most of the trash is a beverage container, many of alcoholic types. It Is no surprise there broken glass on the roadway on a perpetual basis. I think the city of Oakland needs to patrol these car pull outs regularly at sunset to limit the amount of alcohol drivers are consuming and control The amount trash left behind. Perhaps the city could install and maintain trash cans and recycling bins at each of these car pull outs.
The stop line for west-bound Grizzly Peak Blvd was never repainted for the stop sign at Centennial Dr when the road was repaved in 2013. Please send the contractor back to paint the stop line and finish this job, thanks!
Cars turning across the crosswalk from Eastbound University onto northbound Oxford (as the vehicle to the right of this picture is) often don't yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. More dangerous is for traffic (particularly bikes) heading westbound from campus onto University. I was nearly crushed by a cement truck today, while on my bike. I had the right of way and was following all traffic laws as the truck came barreling around the corner. A filter arrow is needed here before someone gets killed.
East-bound traffic on Hearst no longer has left-turn signal, but west-bound traffic on Hearst still has red light during green phase for east-bound traffic. Either east-bound traffic should get a left-turn signal on to northbound Oxford, or both directions should have green phases without turn signals.
There is a huge pile of stuff on Hearst Avenue between Milvia & Bonita Streets. It falls into the street into traffic and the bike lane and is a public safety hazard as it is adjacent to a children's play area and a tot park. It grossly exceeds the permissible limit of personal possessions allowed to be amassed on public sidewalks. Rats and hypodermic needles have been spotted there.
There are lots of leaves on the shoulder. As a result cyclists cannot use shoulder. Cyclists have to contend with the fast going traffic on Grizzly. Please sweep up the debris. It will make the effective street width wider. This will make Grizzly Peak safer.
Rocks, dirt and tree branches continue to fall down the hillside covering the roadway. The white line on the northbound side of the roadway is not visible for at least 100 feet. Please clean the side the road we making for safe passage by bicycles and cars.
