  • 267 Windsor St Cambridge, Massachusetts - The Port
    I often come from Market St. onto Windsor and numerous times, I've had near accidents because of cars speeding on Windsor St. Can something be done to slow down cars on Windsor St.? It's difficult to see how quickly cars are coming on Windsor from Market St.
  • Mead St Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    Drivers around rush hour (3pm-8pm) are recklessly driving down Mead st every day often cutting into the wrong lane on Walden st towards mass ave to cut past traffic. Multiple times today alone I was at risk of being hit both as a driver and a pedestrian. They swing around the corner with no visibility often at an inappropriate speed. It is a two way street only large enough for one car at a time and as a resident it becomes unsafe to drive up the street towards Walden st (the opposite direction from these reckless drivers). Exiting driveways is also extremely unsafe, I was almost killed while exiting a driveway today by a car that raced down the street and stopped barely a foot away from hitting me while I was still perpendicular to the road while backing out. He had to go around me because he didn't give me enough space to straighten out and even get close to making room for him to pass appropriately. This street is not equip to handle this kind of traffic. There are children living on this street and it is terrifying for 5 hours of the day. There was a cop placed in front of the street once but had no impact by the next week. What is needed is a sign for residents only even just for the afternoon. PLEASE HELP! This is really really scary and nothing has been done despite my own as well as other complaints I've heard being made by others.
  • 441 Broadway Cambridge, Massachusetts - Mid-Cambridge
    The 2 dawn redwood trees in this photograph are located directly in front of the Main Library. These trees are iconic and greatly beloved. However, as can be evidenced in this photograph, these trees are looking highly stressed. Loving attention is urgently needed! Please feed these trees (deep-root fertilizaion would be good) and mulch them with a mulch/ compost/ mix. Time to bring these beloved beauties back to life!
  • Cambridge St & Maple Ave Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge

    I have fumed over Comcast often in the many years I've lived in Cambridge - over their pricing, lack of flexibility with bundled packages, overpriced internet-only service, etc - but I just realized tonight that SeeClickFix might know EXACTLY where to route this issue!!!

    WHY is Comcast the only option we have for residential internet here in Cambridge?? Isn't this the exact definition of a monopoly?? And why is Verizon FiOS not here yet, which might give us some options and thus - leverage - for residential internet??

    I am REALLY tired of the endless incremental increases in my bill, the $9.95 added to my bill for (what is supposed to be FREE) broadcast stations, the almost-equal cost for internet only if I want just that and not cable or phone...

    What branch of our City is in charge of this, and when will it change?

  • 1912 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    Delivery truck completely blocking bike lane this morning on Mass ave coming up to Porter square.
  • 1662 Mass. Ave. Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    Sidewalk stencils designating no sidewalk bicycling are faded or missing. Mass. Ave. from Wendell-Shepard to Russell-Cogswell is a legal no-sidewalk-bicycling zone. Curb cut reconstruction has obliterated some old stencils. As a result, to the disadvantage of pedestrians, sidewalk cycling is on the increase. The stencils are much more effective than posted metal signs, so please replace and maintain them.
  • 343 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA 02141, USA - East Cambridge
    At sciarappa st at Cambridge st 69 bus stop people constantly park in bus stop illegally to pick up pizza at arams. Can stop be moved to opposite intersection in front of st Francis? Bus often doesn't see people waiting and we miss our bus!
  • 320 Rindge Avenue Cambridge, MA - North Cambridge
    Pedestrian reports missing crosswalk sign here. Today Water Dept worked at this location. Residents put a temporary "sandwich board" indicating crosswalk for students to identify crosswalk, but that disappeared today. Resident is not sure why the temporary sandwich board sign had to be removed. Please reinstall the crosswalk sign or provide some temporary indicator for students to safely cross Rindge Ave. This is a high traffic area and should not be unmarked.
  • Alewife Linear Park Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    A big box truck that illegally entered the bike path knocked the new bike lights off rendering them useless and they're hanging down potentially dangerous. Should be fixed ASAP.
  • 7-11 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02142, USA - East Cambridge
    The protected bike lane on Broadway is impassible, forcing cyclists to veer dangerously into the street. This is unacceptable to have a bike lane completely covered in ice, especially as Cambridge touts itself as a bike-friendly city. Further up the street, the sidewalk level bike lane has had snow pushed into it and has aso not been plowed. The bike lane on the other side of the street is also full of snow. This is unacceptable!
  • Mass Ave/Cameron Intersection Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    This issue is for both Mass Ave/Cameron Ave intersection and Mass Ave/Cedar Street intersection.
    These two intersections are very busy with pedestrian and bicyclists competing with cars turning into Mass Ave from Cameron Street and Cedar Street and vice versa. Also, these two intersections are gridlocked during morning and evening rush hours further endangering the pedestrians and bicyclists.
    My wife came very close to getting hit by a car turning left from Cameron Ave onto southbound Mass Ave as she was crossing Mass Ave from west side to the east side with the walk sign in her favor. The motorist had the green light to proceed as well but was not paying close attention to the pedestrian traffic.
    Mass Ave/Cedar Street intersection has the added complication of bicyclist and pedestrian attempting to go from the west side of the Linear Park to the east side..
    Please study the situation and see if dedicated walk cycle an be added.
  • 288-308 Franklin Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Riverside
    again, on friday around 10:30, the sidewalk was occupied by 2 rental cars. Enterprise regularly used the sidewalk as their extra parking space, leaving little space for pedestrians on the sidewalk. will the city do something about it (this is my third complain and I have already called the police more than once...).
    ticketing is obviously not working here
