Central Ave. Heading Towards Webster St. Before Caroline St. Alameda, California - AlamedaCitizens of Alameda expect your garbage bill to go up! Alameda has a major problem with the illegal dumping and people stealing recycling materials such as cans and bottles out of garbage cans for their OWN PERSONAL GAIN. I called Alameda PD on the non-emergency phone number at 12:44pm today to report a person taking recycling out of garbage cans on Central Ave. The woman who answered did NOT take my phone # or name. Do the police care? I called back at 12:48 pm to report I would be putting a picture of the woman on SeeClickFix.

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).
Intersection Of Packet Landing Road And Centre Court Alameda, California - Alameda
Safety issues caused by red zone violations on either side of Centre Court intersection with Packet Landing Road, creating zero visibility when exiting or entering Centre Court. Occurs twice weekdays, at beginning and end of school at nextdoor Earhart Elementary school, with mostly the same few parents using Centre Court red zones as parking spaces for average 20-30 minutes per vehicle.
I personally stopped by police station to report on 11/8 (incident 1C 117), and newly assigned officer told me it was the first he'd heard of problem (although familiar with similar issues at BayFarm school), and emergency work permitting, that he'd try to come out in a week or 2, to ticket offenders; asking around and asking police, has not happened to date.
To demonstrate more than single incident of 11/8, I also called in violations to non-emergency police number on 11/14, 11/15, 11/16; police were unable to respond in the average 20-30 minutes vehicles remained in red zone. (I was told because drivers remained in vehicles, police needed to be dispatched, instead of parking enforcement.) I submitted photos of license plates of offenders to Harbor Bay Security, for their tracking & forwarding to police; these were mostly repeat offenders.
My request is to eliminate the safety issues of zero visibility caused by red zone violations, whether via ticketing offenders, blocking red zone with pylons that seems to be effective down the street in school red zones, or whatever it takes to fix.
Constitution Way And Marina Village Parkway Alameda, California - AlamedaMy husband was hit while crossing Constitution at Marina Village Parkway this morning after dropping our two year old off at preschool. The driver immediately left the scene. My husband and daughter are nearly hit almost daily at this intersection as people turn right on the red to go into the tube. I urge the city to change this light to a "No Turn on Red" intersection, post "School Zone" signage to remind drivers to be cautious and look for young children, and to increase the traffic police presence during morning commute times.

800 Taylor Ave Alameda, California - Alameda
Crossing guard at crosswalk at Taylor/Eighth entered the walk with sign raised and stopped traffic to allow a mounted cyclist traveling west on Taylor, on the roadway, to cross Eighth, and proceed on Taylor.
A mounted cyclist is not a pedestrian.
A mounted cyclist on the roadway is a 'vehicle' under California Vehicle Code.
It seems some remedial training for crossing guards is in order.
