    Stanton And Buena Vista Alameda, California - Alameda
    Can a stop sign or a traffic signal be put up in Stanton and buena vista. I'm trying to cross the street with my kids and no one is stopping for the cross walk. Over the last two weeks I've nearly been run over several times.
  • 1803 Stanton St Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

    I'm going to keep posting for this until someone takes action. I nearly witnessed a young woman in front of me nearly get run over by a van tonight speeding down Buena Vista. It's now very dark when many of us get home from work this time a year and this intersection DESPERATELY needs some sort of crosswalk light to signal that people are crossing the street. Many people park their cars along the road also blocking view of pedestrians attempting to cross.

    We are also entering into the wet season when it takes more time to slow to a stop. Either get a cop out here to patrol and fine speeders, a mph warning sign, or install a damn crossing light here already! The Marina Shores community has been asking for one for 2 years now. There are also people speeding down Clement, you can work on that issue next.

    What will it take- a dead pedestrian -for you to FINALLY take action? This is ridiculous!

  • 1803 Stanton St Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    I would like to propose a flashing crosswalk sign here similar to those used on Park street. Because of street parking, it is oftentimes difficult to see pedestrians on the sidewalk trying to cross and cars speed down the road. At night it is very dangerous trying to cross Buena Vista after exiting the bus.
  • Entrance Rd Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda
    Traffic has become dangerous at this intersection, with more cars turning on and off of Buena Vista, and crossing as a pedestrian or bike is nearly impossible. Cars regularly drive this stretch of BV between 40 & 60 mph. Please install the planned 3-way stop now, before a bad crash or pedestrian fatality occurs.

  • Stanton St & Buena Vista Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda

    Hi -

    Please consider putting in a crosswalk similar to https://lanelight.com/crosswalks-rrfb/ at Buena Vista & Stanton.

    Too many drivers use this street like a highway and we have had challenges crossing the street and when we are able to cross drivers don't slow down. Having the flashing lights would draw attention that there is/are pedestrian(s) trying to cross the street.

    The safety of Alameda residents and guests appreciate this.

    Thanks.
    JK

  • Pacific Ave. At Paru St - Alameda
    Please make Paru/Pacific a 4-way stop. Cars speed through the stop signs on Pacific and we have witnessed many collision close calls at this intersection.
  • 1501 Buena Vista Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda

    An ongoing issue at Delmonte Werehouse located at 1501 Buena Vista Ave. Tractor and trailers operated by Oakland Transportation INC, CA# 0453410, are parked daily along Entrance Road. The commercial vehicles arrive at odd ours of the night. The vehicles often arrive betwen 10 pm and 12 AM, they resume operation between 4 am and 7 am.

    Alameda Police has been called on numerous occasions and have noted the vehicles are illegally parked, but on private property. No action is taken, the problem continues.

    Accoridng to Tim Lewis Home( current owners of the the Delmonts Werehouse) they are aware of the issue , but say Alameda will not allow them to erect fencing along Entrance road. In addition no parking signage is held up with the permit office.

    This has been going on for over two years and this is not the first posting regarding this issue. Entrance road is zoned as a “Residential Neighborhood”. The noise associated with this issue is disruptive, and their vehicles unslightly in a residential area.

  • 1542 Lincoln Ave Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda
    The corner of lincoln and stanton desperately needs a stop sign. Drivers are constantly driving well over 25 mph and blow through the pedestrian crosswalk. Today, a driver was going very fast and hit a dog without stopping. I live on the corner so I often see people trying to cross the street and almost get hit. It is a blind corner and drivers fly around it without realizing there is a pedestrian crosswalk. There are a lot of families that live in the area and walk their dogs and kids. It is not safe on this corner without a stop sign.
  • 1412 Pacific Alameda, California - Alameda
    Tenants of this property dumped several mattresses and headboards as well as an office chair and propped them up against a utility pole. These have been there for several days now. Couldn't they have ordered a garbage pick up or dumpster instead of leaving these on the sidewalk and curb?
  • Buena Vista Ave & Paru St Alameda, CA, 94501, USA - Alameda
    Requesting crosswalk to be put in at this junction, very hard to cross.. Especially for kids.
  • 1532 Buena Vista Ave Alameda, CA 94501, USA - Alameda

    I just witnessed a City truck going in excess of 40 miles per hour down Buena Vista eastbound, accelerating like they were meeting on the highway. The truck was driven by a male maintenance worker. They may have been public works or rec and park.

    Please remind your employees that it is their responsibility to drive safely and obey the law. Please also remind them that they are a very visible representation of our city government and their misdeeds will be looked at negatively by the community.

    Please also remind them that the first and foremost duty of any public worker is to protect the public good and safety. Driving at excessive speeds down residential streets is not appropriate or acceptable.
