4200 Wilson Blvd Arlington, VA 22203, USA - Ashton Heights
People park illegally in the no parking zones outside 4121 Wilson all the time. As you can see, this blocks all view of fast oncoming traffic as you exit the garage. I have already been in 1 accident as a result.
3296 10th Street North Arlington, VA - Ballston-Virginia Square
The Hess station operator has placed a sign on the sidewalk that blocks the view of oncoming cars (heading east on 10th St. around inside curve) when exiting the station.

There is high pedestrian traffic at this intersection, but no pedestrian safety measures. A stoplight with pedestrian signals would dramatically improve pedestrian safety at this intersection. At the very least, signs telling cars to stop for pedestrians would help. The intersection is also unsafe for drivers attempting to turn left from Pollard to Wilson, as the Wilson traffic is often speeding and the road curves there, harming visibility.
23rd Street Arlington, Virginia - Aurora Highlands
The light to turn onto Route 1 from 23rd street appears to be both too short and ill timed with the other lights (only 1 green for every 2 for cars coming from other directions).
Harrison Street And Washington Blvd Arlington, VA 22205, USA - Tara-Leeway Heights
The intersection of Washington Blvd and Harrison Street in Arlington VA has become a huge danger. We need to install a light that is timed like the ones on Harrison St and Yorktown that senses when traffic arrives at the intersection (the least trafficked road - Harrison in this case) the light allows them to go but quickly changes back to red to keep the flow on Washington Blvd going.

Traffic frequently backs up up out of the Whole Foods parking lot into Clarendon Blvd. Often times, the vehicles will "block the box" during Clarendon Blvd's red light and prevent traffic on Edgewood from proceeding in any direction while they have a green light. The back-ups generally impede smooth flow of traffic.
1617 North Danville Street Arlington, Virginia - Lyon Village
This should not be a two-way stop around a traffic circle. The two-way traffic that is allowed to proceed without stopping always drives VERY fast, and the blind spots at this intersection--caused by fences, untrimmed trees, and the median in the traffic circle--make it impossible to see the non-stopping traffic until you're practically in the intersection. Children play here, people run here, and pedestrians cross with their dogs here. I've narrowly avoided being hit by other cars on several occasions, and I don't run here precisely because it is so dangerous. It needs to be a four-way stop.

At the Rt 29 / Military&Quincy intersection, the left turn movement has been modified in such a way that cars must now turn in front of each other. The previous format was cars turning after they passed each other in the intersection. The new format is unsafe. The respective north and south points on Military/Quincy are too far away from the corresponding east and west lanes on Rt 29.
It's near impossible to make a left turn from Military to Rt 29 E when traffic turning left from Quincy to Rt 29 W.
3526 King Street Alexandria, VA - Fairlington-Bradlee
During the morning rush, the timing of the traffic light combination on north bound Quaker Lane when you cross W Braddock Road and King Street changed a few weeks to a month ago. I believe both the lights are now on less time letting north bound Quaker Lane traffic through. I know for sure the light when crossing King St. (especially the left turn light from Quaker to King West) is on less time. This is causing north bound Quaker to back up significantly each weekday morning. Just in the last couple of weeks, the signal cycle is taking 4-8 times, when before it was 1-3. All that is needed is to reset the timing of the lights (maybe just the King Street light is needed).
Chain Bridge McLean , Virginia - Olde Glebe
Coming from VA, there is NO SIGN of any kind to warn motorists that Chain Bridge is being closed from 9 pm to 5 am. We tried to drive to DC at 10 pm last night, and found the bridge closed. If is difficult/dangerous to turn around where Chain Bridge Road and Glebe intersect just on the VA side of the bridge - why is not there a sign BEFORE VA drivers get to the point of no return? Also, I am on all the "alert" lists for DC, Arlington etc and have not received ANY noticse.
