  • 20 Gray St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    This "no parking" sign was stapled directly on to our house -- the sign should not be stapled to private property.
  • 300 Walden Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    I have yet again almost been hit by a car while crossing on Garden Street at the corner of Walden Street. This intersection is highly trafficked by aggressive drivers using it to cut through the neighborhood. I have seen many a near miss and let me remind you there is a school, playground and park located on the corner I am speaking of. The recent new bump out design has exacerbated the situation pushing the pedestrians directly in front of cars that are turning onto Garden Street, worst design. The original intersection design called for a raised four way cross walk along with the bump out, it was not built. You must act before there is a fatality at this intersection.

    Riley Bros dump truck parked on bike path and sidewalk near Sunoco station and crosswalk to Fresh Pond. Called the state police and they said "maybe they're doing construction"...no one in the truck. Blocks under one of the front tires.

    Vehicle operators often run the red light turning left from Mason St onto Massachusetts Ave when the signal turns green for right turn only. The root of the problem is that there is only one red signal (which is a full circular disk), and operators are not expecting that a green signal would be a right arrow only and thus would not apply to them. See attached photo of Mason St traffic light.

    It would reduce the number of drivers running the red light if there were two separate red lights, with left and right arrows, right above the left and right green arrows, respectively. Walden St at Mass Ave used to have the same problem until it was recently upgraded to such improved lights. See attached photo, right.

    Richdale Avenue Cambridge, MA - Neighborhood 9
    Resident called to report that the 2 crosswalks at Richdale and Upland/Mt. Vernon were all shoveled out and the plows completely closed them in again and dumped snow right back onto the cleared s/w near 35 Upland.

    The pedestrian crossing on the west side Massachusetts Ave. across the right slip lane onto NB Garden St. is uncontrolled, near Dawes Island. Drivers repeatedly fail to yield right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks. Even when some drivers yield to pedestrians, there is always a multiple threat scenario - where a driver in the adjacent turn lane fails to notice pedestrians and yield the right-of-way. I suggest the following safety counter-measures be considered: Rapid Flash Beacon for pedestrians crossing slip lane; raised crosswalk; shark teeth yield marks in advance of the crosswalk; or install a traffic signal (that is coordinated with the Mass Ave. & Cambridge St. signal) that would allow for an exclusive pedestrian AND exclusive right turn phase.
  • 11 Wright Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Neighborhood 9
    My car got stuck in the snow on Wright Street today - this is 4 days after the storm. This is a recurring issue, and must be addressed. Can you please plow out the street completely.
  • Follen St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9
    As a resident who lives on this street, parking has become impossible during the day. The amount of reserved spaces right now is unfair. Today some company had two sections reserved but still parked their huge trailer in another non reserved section and onto the sidewalk. I live here and can not find parking. This needs to get under control. Why are there so many reserved spots being approved?
