22 VotesFix it! Voted!Scenic Loop Louisville/Jefferson County, KY 40205, USA
By Kentucky law, bicyclists must obey all posted traffic signs. The traffic signs in Cherokee and Shawnee Scenic Loops currently PROHIBIT clockwise riding. At every park entrance there is a posted "One Way" sign, and shortly thereafter a "Do Not Enter" sign.
It is not the intention of Parks to prohibit this use of the scenic loops. "Except Bicycle" signs need to be tacked on to allow bicyclists the right to travel clockwise on these loops.
Attached to this SeeClickFix report, find an image of such a sign.
The scenic loops do not need "except pedestrians" or "except skaters" signs because those modes of transportation are not vehicles under KY traffic law, and they are not forced to obey "one way" or "do not enter" signs in the first place.

Speeding on Highland Street has created an extremely unsafe situation, especially at pick-up and drop-off times at a local preschool here. Yesterday, at about 4:30 PM, a parent's car door was damaged by a speeding car (which did not stop). Thankfully, neither the parent NOR the child was injured. However, there are young children getting in and out of cars, being dropped off by caregivers on foot and by bike, and being escorted across the street here.
Please, we need this speeding curtailed and traffic calming measures implemented before a tragic incident occurs here.
UPDATE: The city and the school now are working together on this-- but in good conscience, we cannot close the issue since it has yet to be fixed.

100 Sitterly Rd Clifton Park, NY 12065, USANot everybody has a car in Clifton Park! It is very dangerous to walk to get groceries and shop at the mall. With the snowbanks making the streets more narrow, it is hazardous to walk on Sitterly Rd and Clifton Park Center Road. We need sidewalks. People are trying to walk in the deep snowy ditches on the side of the road. Teenagers walking home from school can easily get hit by a car because there is no place to walk but in the road. The nice elderly man who rides his bike to get around is in danger.

9 VotesFix it! Voted!Hoboken Ave Jersey City, NJHoboken Ave, when it runs up to Palisade Ave is incredibly dangerous for bikers. At the bottom of Hoboken Ave, there is a clear definition of two lanes. When moving uphill, the lane divisions disappear, and cars feel free to speed up the whole road. Even though the hill is a one way, many bikers use that road to access Jersey City and Hoboken, and it proves very dangerous for us, especially at night time.
11 VotesFix it! Voted!Canner St And Orange St New Haven, CT 06511This intersection needs a traffic light. Both Orange St. and Canner St. are major thoroughfares for this area. There's considerable pedestrian traffic too, including people disembarking from the Yale Shuttle Orange Line stop. I have seen so many near misses - this is a fatality waiting to happen.
3 months ago I saw a big car collision here (one car pulled in front of one barreling down Orange St) as I was riding along Orange on my bike. Today I watched as a couple + dog tried to cross the intersection while cars converged and cut in from every direction. To add to the danger, visibility was reduced on both sides thanks to a minivan parked on a no-parking spot on the SW corner of the intersection and a UPS truck on the other side. Even w/o them it would have been difficult to cross given the high speed and sheer volume of cars coming on Orange St.
Thanks! Thanked!Potter Street Berkeley, CA
Some of the most heaved and broken pavement in Berkeley lies on this stretch. The road is often patched, but the patches soon wear out.
This has been written up in Chronicle Watch, and been the subject of many City of Emeryville Bike/Ped Meetings. Unfortunately the road mostly serves Emeryville, but it is a shared right of way between Caltrans and City of Berkeley.
Thus it gets neglected.
It needs a "full depth" reconstruction, and would be a very valuable place to add a sidewalk or shared use pathway.
3079 Peachtree Rd Ne Atlanta, GA 30305, USAThe sewer drainage grate needs to be replaced. For bikers heading East on EPF, the grate runs in the direction of traffic, and the slats in the grate are wide enough for a road bike tire to slip through. It just sent a friend to Grady 2 days ago.
