  • Constitution Before Posey Tube Alameda, California - Alameda
    In the center divide just before entering the Posey tube on Constitution Way are two homeless encampments that have been growing now for several months. Time and again the people who are living in these encampments cross the two very busy streets in on coming traffic, often with items they have collected for their encampments, and creating a the very real possibility of an accident waiting to happen.
  • Webster St & Stargell Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda
    Vehicles come speeding out of the tube and continue at same high speed blowing past the (red) light at Webster/Stargell. Only a question of time before somebody is seriously hurt. Can APD install traffic cameras at this intersection? It is getting out of hand.
  • 2295 Mariner Square Loop Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

    DAY 35: Trash is piling up. Wonder how disabled person will get shelter in today's rains?

    AC Transit says bus shelters in Alameda are not their purview. City says person not a harm to themselves and community yet they stay in location 24/7.

    Is this what we can expect if Measure A passes?🤔

    Come on Alameda! We can do better. People are compassionate but they want standards.

  • 2295 Mariner Square Loop Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    Day 4: Joe DeVries of City of Oakland said the following about their Lake Merritt removals: "People are compassionate but they want some standards." What say you City of Alameda? (Reminder...please don't post your boiler plate reply) Thanks!
  • Encinal Basin Alameda, California - Alameda
    This morning there were over 9 boats dumped in the Encinal Basin. The majority of these boats were towed into the basin by a man n a small dingy boat. In the last couple of years, this continues to be a problem causing garbage in the basin and people from the boats climb the ladder to chairs that they have chained to the fencing at the end of the basin , along with tables, and have gatherings there. So far two such boats have sunk in this basin causing the city to retrieve the boats at great cost but also as important leaving a large spill of oil and other damaging substances from when the boats sink. I don't understand why this continues to be allowed to this point. PLEASE use our harbor patrol boats and officers to take care of this matter before another boat sinks!
  • 2000 Webster Street Alameda, California - Alameda
    Conditions at the intersection of Webster and Atlantic are getting worse. Speeding, red light running and failure to yield to pedestrians have become the norm. This week, a co-worker of mine who does not normally cross Atlantic and Webster, did so. She said that it was incredibly scarier being cut off in the crosswalk. Another co-worker filed a SeeClickFix about her experience. Police enforcement must be increased. When people are afraid to cross the street to go to Starbucks, that says a lot about the conditions here. Vehicles should not be traveling at 50 mph on Atlantic west of Webster. Something has to be done. If the police do not have adequate resources, then install speed bumps and red light cameras. The current worsening conditions are not acceptable and the public should expect better.
  • 2755–2757 Bette St Alameda 94501, United States - Alameda
    Speeding cars everyday. Please put up speed limit signs and patrol. Almost got hit today
  • Encinal Basin Near Wind River Alameda, California - Alameda
    Another boat has been docked in the Encinal Basin now for about a month. It is a larger white boat with what looks they took the top of a trailer and attached it to the boat . The boat also has a small dingy boat tied to the side of the large boat that they use to access land.
  • 1400 Bar & Grill 1400 Webster St, Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda
    Had lunch at 1400 today. At around 2:30 p.m., about a dozen motorcycles were running red lights at high speed all along Webster, heading for the tunnel. Saw no police. Is this typical?
  • 1415 Pearl St Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda

    Neighborhood recycling thief has been trespassing on various properties to loot the recycling bins (and make a massive mess and a lot of noise in the process) for about a year now (possibly longer!) Have been reporting them weekly since April of 2018 but APD ignored it every time. I got so fed up with it that I decided to follow and record this person on video as they proceeded to trespass and steal from all the properties in my neighborhood, and eventually managed to flag down a couple APD officers who were driving through the area and got them to stop the thief. The thief is an elderly asian woman, possibly vietnamese, who typically wears a grey cap, blue jeans and grey sneakers. The thief usually uses a large three-wheeled cart to transport the stolen recyclables to whoever is paying them for them.

    Officers apparently asked them to knock it off and I thought the issue was finally resolved, only to see this same person come back again the next weekend and continue trespassing and stealing from everyone's properties in the neighborhood.

    There's also a handful of other thieves, possibly associates of this individual, who also like to go around trespassing on people's properties and digging through their bins. They usually hit various apartment complexes on central before proceeding northbound on Pearl street to hit more properties up that way. I am not sure what their full route is, but I know that they typically come around this area on Sundays and Mondays (although I've also occasionally seem them on a few other days), and usually either mid-morning or in the afternoon.

    it is very frustrating that even after an entire year of thoroughly documenting the problem, diligently reporting it to APD every time it happens, the problem continues to persist totally unabated. APD needs to put an end to the weekly recycling theft and trespassing that they've allowed to continue with impunity for an entire year (and possibly longer).

  • 1223 Pacific Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda
    How is the process started for an intersection to become a four way stop? Another horrible accident today at our home of Sherman and Pacific.
    It only has 2 stop signs and 1 unlit crosswalk, with people speeding down Sherman every day, it needs 4 stop signs and 2 crosswalks desperately.
    In the time weve been here, going on 6 years, at least 10-12 really bad accidents have happened here needing police/paramedics. Today a woman's car got smashed into and spun around. She frantically ran to the back and pulled out 2 toddlers from the car, thank God they all seemed ok.
    I know they turned Santa Clara and Sherman into a four way stop, we need one as well, especially this intersection feeding right into Little John Park.
  • 1561 5th Street Alameda, California - Alameda
    1561 5th St ... This house recently vacated by elderly owner has become an attractant for dumping trash and worse. A few weeks ago, there were twelve police cars surrounding this same house when it was broken into. The property is directly across the street from a small market and there is daily smoking & littering by folks loitering on the front steps and up on the porch.
