  • Chicorana @ Laurel Crest Dr West Columbia, SC - West Columbia
    Where Chicorana deadends into Laurel Crest there is a missing (turn either way) sign. Also there used to be a guardrail along laurel crest to prevent people from driving into the creek.
  • Broad River Bridge On River Drive Columbia, SC - Columbia
    This project has not only taken too long, taken out a beautiful handicapped ramp with gate, but also closed our area of the Riverfront Park of the Three Rivers Greenway at the most beautiful end of Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park at the Diversion Dam. We have no access from 2 sides of this popular place where many types of birds come to eat 2 times a day, have missed out on the spring and summer tours of the fish tracking system in SC from here down to the Mississippi and the ocean and back. Joggers, bikers, USC running team, walkers alone or with families, and those who live in housing subdivisions, condos, and nice apartment complexes no longer have egress to our park nor to the rest of the Riverfront Park downtown to enjoy. It's like we NEVER had a park! It should NEVER take this long to build a bridge but fast to destroy what we had and the handicapped people who could go to the park from thew bridge. I wonder how much it cost to place that access there and if it will ever be returned for the handicapped. The way it looks now, it may NEVER be back! Traffic is horrible and hard to get onto Broad River from there nor go from Bentley Drive across to River Drive to Skyland Estates. It has needed a working red light for years not a caution light. We just had a death there several weeks ago from an accident as 2 - 3 cars were involved with one going over into the river. When is this park, handicapped ramp, and bridge no longer going to be MIA (MISSING IN ACTION)!? This is a total travesty, waste of time, taken away from property values, and should have never been redesigned this way. WE almost lost the one side of the bridge last spring from a rain storm with the barge holding a crane leaning towards falling into the almost one side of the completed other end of this bridge!
  • 7251 Garners Ferry Rd Columbia, SC - Columbia
    There are several hotels on E. Exchange Blvd, where many tourists who are not fully familiar with the area attempt to make danger left turns across busy lanes of traffic off of E. Exchange onto Garners Ferry Road.
  • Converse And Citadel Ave Columbia, SC - Forest Acres

    All the corners surrounding the park are multi-way stops except the corner of Converse and Citadel. Traffic on Converse does not have to stop and the result is people speed past the intersection on their way to Trenholm or Clemson Rd.

    What is particularly troublesome is that there is a children's playground just a few feet away from the intersection and it is very possible that a child could dart into the street and be hit by a speeding car.

  • Springdale Springdale, South Carolina - Springdale
    This area continues to have boil water advisories on a regular basis. Why can't the problem be fixed permanently instead of patched? It is more than a nuisance now. Neighborhood rarely gets notified of advisories and when they are lifted. I either see them on tv, notice water pressure change or actually see West Columbia water employees working on the road. It has happened so often the road(s) need zippers to open them up. Please REALLY fix the problem--we all pay our bills and deserve better!
  • Turnbridge Lane Columbia, SC - Woodfield
    Needs speed bumps because its a slightly curved road and people come speeding down the road. We have children who ride bicycles and people walking pets everyday down our street and we have had to yell at cars to slow down.
  • Jaywalking Archived
    1931 Assembly Street Columbia, SC - Columbia
    Early Morning Jaywalkers 6:45-7:00 am. Step out into traffic, no regard for crosswalks - need to be policed before another pedestrian gets hit in this area.
  • 1352 Omarest Drive Columbia, SC - St. Andrews
    Omarest Drive is a short cut to get to the apartments to Lost Creek Drive. They fly going down Omarest and almost hitting people who are walking on the side of the road in the DARK due to NOT enough MERCURY LIGHTS for this street! For crying out loud, PLEASE get someone out to Omarest and investigate the LIGHTS, SPEEDING, LOITERING from the INTOWN SUITES DOWN TO THE BACK OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, trespassing on our property and throwing there beer cans and trash in our yards. THANK YOU!
  • 2613 Leaphart Rd West Columbia, SC - Lexington County
    The twin traffic lights on Leaphart Rd at Chris Dr. and Harbor Dr. can really cause backups on Leaphart. I've been stuck here for twenty minutes and it wasn't even rush hour. These intersections need left turn lanes at all approaches. I know this is difficult because of expense of widening Leaphart Rd's interstate bridge, but this bridge is narrow and old and needs to be replaced anyways.
  • Beverly Drive West Columbia, SC - Lexington County
    This road is getting out of control-cars fly down this road, most don't even live on this road, they use it as a cut through. Several of us in this neighborhood have children. I have almost been hit myself just getting the mail!! There has got to be something done, before someone gets hurt or killed...please help!!
  • Brennen Rd Columbia, SC - Columbia
    We’ve been trying for the last three year’s to get three way stop sign’s or speed bump on brennen rd. The city did a 24 hour traffic count and there was 2,610 car’s went up the road & 2,405 down the road top speed 60 MPH The speed limit is 30MPH! We was told they would have to get approval from the highway dept. to do anything! We talk to the city and they’ll send a car to run radar they’ll set around for 10 to 20 minutes in the middle of the day when there’s not much going on! The big problem is between 6:00am to 9:30am & 2:30pm until! They’ve put speed bump’s down on all the side street’s around here that there’s probably not 10 car’s a day use’s!! There’s also signs on the ends of the road that say (thru trucks prohibited) but those big trucks cut thru anyway!! Thank You
