5953 Thornhill Dr Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - MerriwoodPothole near center line going south on Thornhill. It is severe enough to possibly cause damage to tire or wheel, and is exactly where a wheel is likely to strike it.
1690 Woodhaven Way Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - MerriwoodWoodhaven Way from 1690 to Thornhill is broken up with potholes, a reappearing sinkhole, and a great deal of broken pavement. It is very challenging to drive and even more dangerous for bikes. It seems like soon it will not be a paved street at all. It’s too large a section for a photo.

(My husband helped me write this up as he was soooo very concerned about what I told him.)
This morning, Mon. 2/11/2018, at 8:30 am my children and I were walking on the sidewalk in front of Thornhill school during morning drop-off. A brown, 4 door, Buick Enclave SUV (license plate withheld) at a high rate of speed passed the school's drop-off lane and came to an abrupt stop in the RED CURB zone directly in front of Thornhill school front gates, only a few feet from us which gave us a big scare. A female adult got out from the driver's seat, then got out 2 children (1) K (?) and (1) 3rd grade (?) from the backseat and quickly went into the school. A few minutes later, the female returned to the vehicle alone and did an illegal 3-point turn across Thornhill (double yellow) and went away at a high rate of speed.
Excluding obvious safety issues for us on the sidewalk and parents with children crossing Thornhill, the traffic violations are: speeding, RED ZONE violation, illegal U-turn, and speeding again!
This type of occurrence(s) happens all to often on Thornhill in front of Thornhill school. In no way, should any person - especially a parent or someone in charge of children, act in this intentionally reckless and hazardous manner, especially around our children.
The next time I see something like this I will post pictures of the adult and vehicle and get OPD intervention.

The garbage can needs to be replaced so that the can can be emptied on garbage collection days (Tuesdays) without leaving a mess. (This is actually at the intersection of Thornhill Drive and Alhambra Lane.) Thanks!
Thornhill Coffee House 5772 Thornhill Dr, Oakland, CA, 94611, USA - MerriwoodThornhill needs more signage, cross walk traffic lights, and speed bumps to make it safer for pedestrians. There are 2 schools and small businesses in the area between Mountain and Pinehaven and due to people driving too fast there is such a risk to pedestrians. Today a young boy was hit by a truck crossing the cross walk by the Thornhill Elementary school. During school pick up and drop off people park in red zones and no parking zones making this even worse conditions. Some of the no parking signs across from
Thornhill elementary are not visible due to poor sign quality or over grown plants.
A signal that flashes when people walk across cross walk would help alert all drivers that there is a pedestrian in the cross walk. I am a very cautious driver and even I have a hard time between cars pulling out from multiple locations, pedestrians and cyclists. The poor road quality makes this even a bigger problem as I recently went over a pot hole and my car darted to the right, right as a cyclist was going past. I was very close to hitting the cyclist despite going less than 25 mph.
A bigger police presence during drop off and pick up school hours, especially the first weeks of school would help keep those who decide to ignore signage from doing so.
