Issues: bike concern
N Harmony St Medina, OH
All along North Harmony st the sidewalks butt up to the curbs, not only that but many are on 25-45 degree slants, so bikes, roller bladers, and baby strollers are dangerously close to accidentally falling into the road with any slip.
I take my 4 month old walking in this neighborhood and because of this issue, I have in the past had my stroller's wheels slip, luckily there where no cars coming, now I am more careful and either bypass the area all together or stop walking when any cars are coming.

Twice over the past three days I saw a police van parked in the bike lane (marked a no-stopping zone) in front of the Wawa on Spruce at the intersection with 38th, the SE corner. In both instances there were spaces a few yards ahead in the legal parking/loading zone area.
This is a tricky intersection to bike through to the east, with the bike lane in front of the Wawa frequently blocked (the no stopping-zone apparently not enforced), shunting bicycle riders into the car lane. It is generally frustrating that the police do not enforce this no stopping zone, and incredibly galling that we twice saw an officer himself breaking the law and ignoring other illegal parking.
On December 31st, 2010 at about 12:30pm the van # was 2502. We saw an officer get out of the van and enter the Wawa. At the same time, three cars were parked in front of the van, in the no-stopping zone in the bike lane. There were spaces in the legal parking/loading zone ahead, and the officer did not seem to be in any kind of hurry. We parked in the loading zone, ran into the UPS store for a few minutes, and the van was still there when we came out (and there was still space to park in the loading zone).
Today, on January 2nd, 2011, at about 10:45am we saw another police van, # 1901, in the same situation - parked in the no-stopping zone in front of the Wawa, with cars in front also parked in the bike lane/no stopping zone.

There needs to be more enforcement of leash laws in Golden Gate Park on Sundays. It is great that the close the streets so that people can ride, skate, walk or whatever through that area, but there are too many off-leash dogs.
Dogs are unpredictable, have little traffic sense and present a hazard to bikes. Plus many people (particularly children) are uncomfortable around dogs. Too many dog owners think there dog is just "friendly" but then when it knocks someone over or bites someone they say "oh, it has never done that before".
Leash laws exist for a reason and it is very selfish for people with dogs to endanger others by not obeying them.

Carona Drive is nearly a mile long. It is also heavily used for jogging, walking, bike riding, and other outdoor activities.
For the whole length there is one stop sign. A recent study proves that average speed is 15 mph over the speed limit.
Cars traveling 50 mph are not uncommon.
Carona Drive should be redesigned to reduce speed. Circles at each intersection, narrow the road, add lines, speed bumps or rumble strips, white lines to buffer traffic from the sides especially where there are no side walks on either side.

A newly completed road without the ability for cyclists to activate signal change riding east or west on E. Main St. (Forestville) or Forestville Ave. (Plainville). There does exist a pole mounted button, but it is located on the north side of the roadway, adjacent to a sidewalk. By the time a cyclist headed west dismounts to activate the button and gets back on the bike, the signal will change from green to red for the cyclist half way through this already wide and dangerous intersection.
Can the trip wires in the paving be made to activate an automatic change at the traffic controller at this intersection?

Gallatin Road from Old Hickory Blvd to the north side of the rail road tracks has severely broken concrete on the shoulder of both the north and south bould lanes. some of these are extremely dangerous for bicycles. i commute this road both ways daily to work from Rivergate to Nashville.

Cars go speeding up Mansfield Street at very unsafe speeds because it is just a long street, no stop signs or anything. Children are frequently riding bikes around as well, just seems like a terrible combination. Maybe adding stop signs or maybe even just speed bumps (or just those "rumble strips") to certain areas would help.

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.
