  • 15 Memorial Dr Cambridge 02142, United States - Mit
    After I was starting across the longfellow bridge, the driver left his door open and forced a bicyclist into traffic lanes.
    This was last Wednesday morning about 9:30.
  • 02138 West Cambridge, Cambridge, MA, USA - West Cambridge
    Two complaints. #1 cars are running red lights dangerously at corner Fresh Pond Parkway and Huron Ave. We have seen this between 7-8 am weekdays.
    #2 cars are speeding very fast through the Larches neighborhood (Larchwood drive, fresh pond lane, meadow way) bewteen 7-9 am.
    Traffic police could collect a lot of money if you just stationed yourselves at these two areas in the 7=9 am time period. Please, before we have a terrible pedestrian accident!!!
  • Pothole Archived
    Boston University Bridge Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mit
    Saw it yesterday heading towards cambridge from the BU bridge to Brookline St.
    Big enough to kill me on my bicycle, just nearly missed it.
  • 13 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA 02115 - Back Bay
    The bike lane and road next to the curb on the southbound side of Massachusetts Avenue here is full of potholes and uneven pavement. Its actually pretty dangerous to ride a bicycle over. The whole corner from the beginning of the #1 MBTA Bus stop to the edge of Beacon St needs to be repaved. This is of concern because many cyclists ride through this patch of road every day coming off of the Harvard Bridge.
  • Harvard Brg Boston, MA - Back Bay

    When heading south on the Mass Ave bridge on a bicycle, and using the bicycle lane, there is no way to get to the bike path along the river.

    The solution here would be to build a ramp on this side of the bridge down to the river.

    This would be safer for bikers, and prevent the temptation to ride on the opposite sidewalf (unsafe for pedestrians) in order to use that ramp.

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    Boston University Bridge Boston, Massachusetts - Fenway-Kenmore
    There is a HUGE pothole large enough to kill a cyclist. Please fix this! This is such a huge hazard, I'm surprised that it has not been taken care of yet. I called the DOT and I've emailed the DOT. All with no evidence of any concern.
  • Raleigh Street Boston, MA - Fenway-Kenmore
    The intersection of Raleigh Street & Bay State Road is very dangerous. There is no way for the drivers to see the incoming traffic from the stop sign. Moreover to make things worse, snow gets piled at this corner during the winter. A traffic engineering solution is needed before an accident happens
  • Boston University Bridge Cambridge, MA 02139, USA - Mit
    The bituminous fill over the bu bridge expansion joints has recently eroded away in several places. See example in photo. Please fix with durable material. Thank you.
  • 3–13 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02139, United States - Mit
    Spoke to the driver, who flipped me the bird. Enough leniency. Ticket those drivers.

    Harvard Bridge Cambridge 02142, United States - Mit
    Everyday there’s bikers that ride on both side s on the sidewalks and there’s bike lanes right on the street on Harvard bridge in both directions I’m a walker and am furious nothing is being done about this plz enforce rules laws
  • Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02142, United States - Mit
    This is a dangerous intersection and it needs a no turn in red sign to stop cars from turning right onto memorial drive. I have contacted DCR several times and they won’t do it.
  • 585 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore
    Cars, delivery vehicles, and taxis are constantly blocking the bike lane--from beginning to end--on Comm Ave. Swerving in and out of traffic is unsafe on any road.
