  • 4093 Ne 33rd Ave Portland, OR 97212 - Alameda

    The stretch of NE 33rd between Prescott and Fremont really needs some ways to calm the traffic down. Signage, speed-traps, traffic humps, whatever - cars are cruising through here - both dangerous and noisy.

    though the speed limit says 30, cars go 40+

  • 1207 Se Hawthorne Portland, OR 97214, USA - Buckman
    Late night food court mall built of trailers and make shift structures tents and looks like a homeless village fire pits and keg parties on a regular basis. Resulting in drunk drivers playing bumper cars and alcohol infused fights, yelling matches from 11pm to 4 am daily
  • 101 399 E Burnside St Portland, OR 97232, USA - Kerns
    The bike lane is still dangerous for a number of reasons (less-than-ideal curve, poor drainage, and now a rough surface where the old striping was ground off). It would be much better to widen the sidewalk and simply stripe a cycle track onto what is currently the sidewalk. Ramps could be added just like on the Hawthorne Bridge.
  • 6936 Se Nehalem St Portland, OR - Brentwood-Darlington
    Children, pets and pedestrians are endangered daily (especially nightly) by speeding traffic on this double-block. Speed traps or speed bumps would help considerably.
  • 4566 Ne 76th Ave Portland, OR 97218, USA - Cully
    Two large dangerous potholes. Over 10 inches deep.
  • Se 113th And E Burnside Portland, OR - Hazelwood
    People regularly pull over and park on 113th or Pine Ct, just off burnside, and this huge fat balding guy on a bike rides up and meets them. They get out of the car and walk with down the street a bit and go back to their car and leave. The bike guy rides off. These people look SKETCHY and I AM SICK OF THIS. There are a lot of little kids here and this isn't OK.
  • 2 N Killingsworth St Portland, OR 97217 - Humboldt
    This is an extremely dangerous intersection. Cars turn down the street going the wrong way several times a day. Please improve the signage so motorists know not to turn the wrong way.
  • N. Lombard St. And N. Ida Ave. Portland, OR - Cathedral Park
    The Switch that controls the Pedestrian signal to cross N. Lombard Street--when crossing from North to South on the East side of the street--does not work. The switch is located on the Northeast corner of N. Lombard Street and N. Ida Avenue (at the corner next to the car wash/gas station). This intersection is 2 blocks from Roosevelt High School and has a substantial amount of pedestrian traffic from students.
  • Stop Sign Archived
    N. Lombard St And N Macrum Ave. Portland, OR - Portsmith
    The Stop Sign has been knocked down and is laying on the ground at the intersection of N. Lombard St. and N. Macrum Ave.
  • N. Rosa Parks Way & Concord Ave Portland, OR - Arbor Lodge
    Even though this is a neighborhood, people speed like crazy through here. When waiting to cross the street, nobody will stop. Once I was already half-way across when somebody came speeding along, not paying attention, and came about two feet from hitting me - I had to be pulled back. They didn't even bother to slow down or stop to make sure I was okay. I'm tired of this.
  • 3901-3999 Ne Halsey St Portland, OR 97232, USA - Roseway
    Drivers in both right turn lanes turning right onto 39th all looking left to check for openings. They are not looking right for pedestrians crossing on crosswalk. Most cars will inch into crosswalk as well to try for a better view. I have almost been hit on several occasions.
  • 4512 Ne 37th Ave Portland, OR 97211, USA - Cully
    Cars in both directions are crossing the yellow line by almost a whole car width. Speed bumps to make them slow down before the two 90 degree turns would help or a barrier between the lanes.
