Issues: bike concern
5626-5636 Selford Rd Catonsville, MD 21227, USA
This area has a nice wide shoulder, but bikes have to use the road, because the shoulder is in such bad condition. Traffic turning onto Sulphur Spring makes this extra dangerous

THIS ISSUE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ARCHIVED AS IT REMAINS A PROBLEM.
Right next to the "no angle parking" the cars are parked at an angle, blocking the entire bike lane. Needs enforcement!
In addition, the businesses there monopolize the bike lane with their gravel and sand, making it dangerous to travel in the bike lane, and "safer" to travel in the right-hand motor vehicle lane.
4890 Battery Lane Bethesda, MD
Dear Dr. Gridlock,
I live on Battery Lane in Bethesda, which was just redone, probably in anticipation of an increase in traffic from the new Walter Reed complex. While the paving and painting is nice, the way things have been mapped out is poor. The driveway from my parking lot at 4890 comes out behind 4900 perpendicular to Battery Lane. With parking now allowed on my side of the street there is a significantly decreased view of traffic coming both from the left and right, where parked cars can now be found. In order to see if you can turn from the driveway onto Battery Lane you have to pull into the street, which without a clear view of the cross traffic, is very dangerous. Also, a bike lane was added on my south side off the street running right next to where the drivers doors of the parked cars open. You could just imagine a driver opening his door and clipping a biker. I really think that a few parking spaces on each side of my driveway exit need to be removed to allow tenants a safe view and exit from our parking lot. I called the MCDOT and spoke with a woman about this. She told me I'd be called by someone to chat about this. Never heard from anyone. HELP!

The road is impassable as the intersection is almost one large pothole. You must go approx 1-2mph in order to get across the intersection. You also have to get fully into the bike lane to get through.

Trench in bike lane has sunk so deeply below "flush" with the road that the depth (approx 2-3 inches) requires cyclists to swerve into traffic to go around it.

This presents a tripping hazard for pedestrians, a puncture hazard for cyclists, and an barrier to those in wheelchairs.

Cars are comming down Newkirk Ave. speeding, playing very loud music at all hours of the day and night and into the early mornings hours and cars are not stopping at the corners of Newkirk Ave and Maple St. They also come from Maple St. and not stop to go up Newkrik Ave.
I've seen kids come down Newkirk Ave on their bike's and one of these days someone is going to get killed. I've already had in the past and just last year, cars crashed into my gate and now into my fence. I've already asked to have the guardrail I asked to have installed, to have it extended around the corner. I was told that this will be done. I am also making videos of these problems to show if needed. Five DVD videos have been given to the police to look at, and each contains about 40 scenes.
