  • 769 7th St Nw Washington, DC 20001 - Downtown
    Along 7th Street, between Pennsylvania and Massachusetts Avenues, there is a dediated bus/bike lane that is routinely used by vehicles. Constant swerving in and out of this lane creates a serious hazard for cyclists and impedes bus traffic to the point where the buses sit in a traffic jam.
  • 500 H Street Northwest Washington, DC 20001, USA - Downtown
    Alley is disgusting between the restaurants dumping vegetable oil, trash trucks no ones cleaning it and drain is clogged
  • 650 Rhode Island Ave. Nw Washington, DC - Shaw
    The westbound bike lane on R St. does not continue through the intersection at Rhode Island Ave. (as it does at other dangerous intersections like Connecticut and R). Painting the bike lane through the intersection would improve safety for both drivers and cyclists as it would indicate where each vehicle is obligated to drive. This improvement has been made elsewhere in the city and it makes a huge difference for separating bicycles and cars in dangerous intersections. Thank you!
  • 124 R St Nw Washington, DC - Kalorama
    I know of four people (myself included) who have been hit by cars at the intersection of Florida and R. DDOT came and inspected the intersection (last December) and their representatives all agreed that a light needed to be placed there. What did they do? They put up another cross walk sign 4 months later, only after another person was struck by a car. What does it take? A fatality? Anyone in Bloomingdale can vouch for the horror that is the intersection at R and Florida.
  • 1600 Block Harvard/Hobart Alley Washington, DC 20009 - Mount Vernon Triangle

    Our area overrun by rats. Scofflaw Supercan and Recycling Can storage on public space in 1600 block Harvard/Hobart NW alley after day of pickup; many Supercans lack lids or have rat chew holes; improper bulk trash handling; rats' nests in back yards; no rat abatement by homeowners or enforcement by DC gov. What happened to Clean City Initiative and War on Rats?

    Take care of this public health menace.

  • 1001-1003 8th St Ne Washington Dc 20002 USA - Capitol Hill
    Please review intersection and install stop signs on 8th St NE at West Virginia Ave NE
  • 8300 Colesville Rd. Silver Spring 20910 - Downtown
    There are almost daily car accidents on the traffic circle where 16th St., Colesville Rd. and Eastern ave meet. The circle is divided by the border between DC and Silver Spring, MD (Mont Co). A pedestrian was killed a few months ago, the "welcome to DC" sign was demolished, cars are getting t-boned, i've seen a mini van with children in it flip on its side after being struck. The lanes are poorly marked. At least one traffic light (on eastern) is totally obscured by a tree. Drivers cannot see each other due to the bushes/flowers/trees that obscure their view of the other streets/lanes. It seems maybe once a year some group sits on the corner and records accidents and traffic light signals for a day or two to report back to ____?...but nothing has come of it. The signals and lack of signage and unclear lanes have resulted in numerous accidents, injuries and death. My neighbors and i would like this problem addressed and fixed! we would like statistics and the number of accidents /police/firetruck/ambulances that have occurred at this circle. i have more photos...
  • Tree Removal Archived
    1507-1599 Potomac Avenue Southeast Washington, DC 20003, USA - Stadium-Armory
    Three thorny tree (Chinese bitter orange). Invasive and has enormous thorns. Please remove.
  • Park Rd And Klingle Rd Nw Washington, DC - Mount Pleasant
    Drivers going west on Park Rd routinely run the red right-turn arrow to turn right onto Park. They seem to think the green light for going straight onto Klingle applies to them, not noticing the red right-turn arrow. It is dangerous for pedestrians crossing Park on the north side. Could we get improved signage or some traffic-calming measure here?
  • 17th New Hampshire NW intersection, Washington, D.C. - Dupont Circle
    Southbound cars on New Hampshire turning onto 17th street are often going full speed into pedestrians who have the right of way to cross 17th St. A pedestrian-only signal before or after the green light on New Hampshire or no left turn onto 17th St. would be safer.
  • 1501 Eckington Pl Ne Washington, DC - Eckington
    Heading south on Eckington Pl NE towards Florida Ave NE, the signage is confusing as to which lane one should be in. If you want to turn right on Florida then immediate turn left on 1st St NE to either stay on 1st or to go West on New York, nobody knows which lane to be in (the signage only refers to going West on Florida or East on New York. Cars trying to turn for either of the other options mentioned above don't know which lane to be in, and several near accidents and a lot of angry honking has occurred (I witnessed some extreme anger between two cars, yelling at each other). The signs (and possibly some pavement markings) need to be improved to help the situation.
  • North Capital At T St Washington, DC - Bloomingdale
    I walked two blocks to my bus stop (80 bus at North Capital and T St NW/NE) this morning. I had to walk through 2 feet of snow and walk in the street to get around 5 foot snow drifts (from the plows, presumably) just to get there. For the second time this winter, after a heavy snow I had to stand in the middle of the street to wait for the bus. There were 4 of us waiting in the street. An old man actually walked in front of the bus while it was pulling up - luckily the bus driver saw him - but there was no margin of error, and it was pure luck that no one got hurt. Why isn't it standard practice to plow the sidewalks and crosswalks of major streets (like North Capital, Rhode Island, etc.) after a snow storm? After I got off the bus at North Capital and H St, I had to walk literally 20 feet into the road to get around the snow drift the street the plows created. I feel so marginalized as a pedestrian and bus rider, and the grumblings I heard on the bus tell me I'm not alone.
