  • 1637 16th Street Oakland California - Prescott Oakland Point
    Large (3-4" high) bump in road. Has been here for 10+ years. I have seen at least 5 bicyclists fall off their bikes and injure themselves and their bikes by hitting this bump/buckle in the surface of the road. Cars are also hitting the road after hitting this large 'natural' bump.
    12 February 2019 -- STILL THERE (15 YEARS AFTER FIRST REPORTING) - Yet another person went flying head first off of their bicycle the other night.
  • 258 41st Street Oakland, California - Piedmont Avenue

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    Chapman Street Oakland, California - South Kennedy Tract
    The entire Street - Chapman St - there are massive potholes .
    Nothing has been done to repair these holes since moving into this neighborhood 15 years ago. I was just charged over $500.00 to repair - will the City pass this invoice?
    the alignment in my car due to damage caused by the potholes.
    The neighborhood would appreciate some attention to these problems as we all feel totally neglected by the City ...like we don't exist and of no importance.Pls HELP!!! Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Please advise when this problem can be fixed - must have at least 25 pot holes - massive ones !

  • 5422 Shafter Oakland, California - Shafter
    There is a tree that is blocking the street light causing a very dark stretch of sidewalk. Last week there was a armed robbery in this stretch so the neighbors are eager t o get the tree trimmed. It's only a few branches that would need to be cut back.
    Thanks!
  • Driver Plaza Oakland, California - Santa Fe
    Driver Plaza needs help from every city agency. It is frequently the site of all-day drinking fests, the trees are dying from the daily, constant urination by the drunks who party there, and the tree planters are giant garbage cans where the drunks throw their cigarette butts, liquor bottles, needles, cans, and other nasty garbage. The bus stop glass is frequently shattered by drunk, angry people. Families try to walk their dogs and children through the gross mess and cyclists try to navigate this bike corridor without getting flats from all the broken glass.
  • 482 Oak Street Oakland, CA - Produce And Waterfront
    Most of the wall at the South East corner at the intersection between 5th street and Oak Street is plastered with random writing. It is highly visible from the freeway and is the major way Oakland Citizens access the 880 freeway. This makes the entire city look bad.
  • 360 42nd Street Oakland, California - Temescal
    Outside Park Day School
  • Glass & electronics Acknowledged
    3350-3732 Hollis St Oakland, California - Clawson
    Glass, broken electronics, general trash. The dumping is bad enough, but the glass and chemicals from the electronics are dangerous. Caltrans & Oakland, you must install cameras here to stop this nearly daily occurrence. Stop ignoring the obvious solution!
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    5500 Redwood Road Oakland, California - Skyline-Hillcrest Estates
    Multiple, deep potholes on road that circumnavigates Oakland Hebrew Day school building.
