Nearest To 530 Heacock Road
Large potholes straddling the railroad tracks are deep enough to force bike riders to dismount and probably makes the crossing impossible for wheelchairs. A cyclist going at full speed would likely suffer an accident (right on top of active railroad tracks) and a person in a wheelchair could become stuck if attempting to cross.
As the picture shows, drivers on Heacock Road do not have any potholes.
770 Newtown Yardley Road
This pothole is situated on a curve in the path and slopes down gently around its circumference, making it harder to spot. However, the hole is very deep and could cause a cyclist to vault over their handlebars.

Since the bridge is a single lane in each direction - there's no room to safely pass a bicycle rider. There must be a Share the Road and/or Watch for Bikes signage to prevent an accident or aggressive driving.
On Chamblee-Tucker just east of exit ramp.
New gas station opened with entry/exit very close to beginning of merge lane onto Chamblee-Tucker. Curb-cut is wider than normal to facilitate cars turning at higher speeds, creating a pedestrian hazard. Exit is located so close to the merge lane (where vehicles are instructed not to stop), that it is impossible to pull out without potentially cutting someone off, creating a hazard for drivers.
Bicyclists are threatened as cars engage in unpredicable behavior.
A solution would be to have all vehicles exiting the freeway stop at the intersection. This would also facilitate safer pedestrian crossing of the exit ramp.

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THIS ISSUE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ARCHIVED AS IT REMAINS A PROBLEM.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.
