  • 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!!!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cambridge St & Storrow Dr & Longfellow Bridge Boston, MA 02114, USA - Central
  • John W. Weeks Bridge Cambridge, Massachusetts - Riverside
    Hello, the green park-bench that used to be located on top of an approximate 6 feet long by 3 feet wide section of pavement in the grass has been detached from the concrete and thrown into the river. The bench in the river can be seen from the edge of the river in daylight. It is about 3-4 feet from the edge of the river, and in about 3-4 feet deep water. It has been there for about 4 months. I'm wondering if it might be possible to retrieve it, and reattach it to its concrete slab. There are only about 10 benches along that 3/4 mile section of river and grass from the JFK Bridge to well beyond the Weeks Bridge, and the bench, being the closest to the Weeks Bridge, was readily used by hundreds/thousands of people a year. Thanks very much if you're able to help.
  • 1 Main St Cambridge 02139, United States - East Cambridge
    Witnessed this vehicle drive around the bollards in order to park in the bike lane.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Two MBTA Transit police cars blocking the bike lane, leaving cyclists to contend with cars accelerating onto memorial drive
  • 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.

    Besides these two, there were 2 others vehicles parked in this stretch. Multiple bikes having to go around. Whatever is being done is not working. Please help.
