  • 2067 2113 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy Philadelphia, PA 19130, USA - Logan Square

    These crossing are dangerous at ANY time of day, cars running lights, cutting corners, and traveling at high rates of speed.

    While enforcement during the morning rush hour increased before the winter, this road is still commonly a speedway during evening hours.

    Further complicating the issue current lights do not allow effective protective time for pedestrians to cross safely.

    This was tragically and needlessly demonstrated on Saturday evening when a student was struck and horribly injured.

  • 18th St At Wallace Philadelphia, PA - Fairmount-Spring Garden
  • 1819 Spring Garden St Philadelphia, PA 19130, USA - Fairmount-Spring Garden
    The funeral home in this vicinity on Spring Garden regularly blocks off the left lane of Spring Garden going west. Particularly during rush hour this is extremely annoying and dangerous. Today they had an event where attendees blocked the left lane, including the turning lanes (double-parking!!) for three blocks. That business needs to have it's hours restricted. Better yet, the business should be migrated to where it is appropriate and where there is space. Ridge ave comes to mind.
    Accessibility can not be an argument for them to stay - apparently the attendees of their events have sufficient transportation of their own.
    This sort of impediment is inappropriate at any time. Somebody do something, please!
  • Schuylkill River Trail Philadelphia, PA - Logan Square

    I suspect the city of philadelphia has been using solid human waste (sludge) as a ground cover along the Schullykill River Trail. I would like the city to provide the Material Safety Data Sheet for this organic material. I would also like to know why sludge is being used in place of mulched leaves along this pathway.

    It's got a disgusting smell, children play in it and trail users breath it in. We've got enough risks breathing the sewage silt from the leaking Reading sewage plant which was deposited along the river banks during the last 2 storms.
