I-85 To I-77
On the morning of January, 11 2011, my daughter was driving on I-85 to I-77, on her way to Johnson and Wales for school. A car in the left lane of her, threw something at her car, hitting her vehicle. Since the weather was not the best, (ice storm), she did not stop. Thinking that it hit her tire, she watched her tire pressure gauge, and continued on to school. When she arrived at school, she checked the front of her car, finding a huge hole in her drivers side front bumper. When she arrived back home, her dad went out to check the damage, and found inside her bumper, a reflector that is usually imbedded in the road, sitting inside her bumper. My daughter has made several phone calls since then, including her insurance company, 311, loss management, Charlotte police department and she has emailed the NC government. No one will claim the responsibility. We have the reflector which has asphalt attached. Can someone help us find a fix?
5700 Block Of Albemarle Rd. In Front Of Former Uptons Parking Lot
There is a huge hole in the pavement, right lane, outbound. About 8" and maybe 3" deep. I reported this to 311, but no results yet. Is getting larger and deeper. This hole could damage tires/vehicles or cause an accident if a large vehicle swerves to miss it.
4800 Blk Of Independence In Front Of Furniture Direct used to be David's Bridal
Independence Blvd going from Idlewild Rd to N. Sharon Amity the road has been wet for weeks. Now there is a hole in the pavement and water is increasing. Would be a good idea to fix this leak before a car disappears into a sinkhole.

Bud Cessna head of CMS Police had already arrested me about a year ago just before he and his group arrested Cojo and the other teacher.
My crime was walking in the area where people with medical conditions are allowed to come and go. You know the marked way for us to get around to avoid those steps.
Anyway as he was taking me out the regular guards up there explained to him that anyone was allowed to us that walkway. So it seems I was free but the supervisor told me to never return to the building. The next day Building management fired that person and rescinded the banishment as just silly.
Oh watch the whole mess here http://vimeo.com/15839489 see how Charlotte Mecklenburg Police get so many officers around one guy not doing any to resist.
Anyway the other night Bud must have forgot all about the rights of people again and since i have not had my treatments their was no way I could take the stairs so I did what I always do and went out the usual way I have done for hundreds of meetings..
Well suddenly Bud Cessna and another Officer were on me. Telling me to go up the stairs and followed me like I was being arrested in front of everybody. I can tell you my body seized and I fell on the step and then later it took a long time to get control outside.
Now I have spoken with the people at the Center and they said they alway know me and know I go to plenty of meetings there and know the way and have been to meetings in the rooms down there. They are even calling the Police and telling them about the fact people wil medical conditions are to use the walk way behind the chamber.
So what I am asking is not something for me, but something for Bud Cessna and all the members of the Charlotte Mecklenburg School Police Squad and that is sensitivity training so they understand how to handle the public in a better way.
I would like to be sitting beside Bud as he takes the class to show that their is no ill will from people with needs and that learning from people who he thinks he can be mean to is just not a great way to overcome the bad things he may have going on in his life.
What do you say Charlotte Mecklenburg Police and CMS? Do we all just not really need this right now.
1800-2200 Charlotte Dr Charlotte, NC 28203, USA
During the early fall Charlotte Drive was repaved, but it looks like they ran out of asphalt between the 1800 and 2200 blocks! There are dips in the road where new asphalt ends, manhole covers are still well above street level. When a manhole cover is hit you easily lose control of the steering wheel. Paving/surface areas at ajoining intersections are not at the same levels. Help! It's impossible to ride a bike on this street!

CDOT has plans to fix pothole at transit shelter. No plans to correct intermittent water leak, repair road surface, replace non standard curb and gutter that is failing due to higher traffic volumes, resurface patchwork surface of block, extend bike lanes or correct previously repaired pedestrian crosswalk.
This block will continue to cause real issues for transit vehicles, cars and bikes until the block is repaired as a whole. The block is now classified as a mini transit hub and will continue to have large amounts of traffic without clear designs for same, bikes and pedestrians.
The asphalt is crumbling away from the tracks on Eastway Dr so badly that cars have to slow down to 15 mph in a 45 mph zone to cross them. This is a high traffic area due to the fact that Garinger High School is only a block away. With people constantly slowing down to cross, it creates real traffic problems especially during rush hours.
North Graham @ Atando Ave.
There are two sets of railroad tracks crossing N. Graham at around Atando. One set is fine the other set (closer to uptown but still close to Atando) need work. The tracks appear to be alright but the road / cement around them is broken up with holes. This may be alright for autos but if a motorcycle or bike should hit one of those holes at the wrong angle, it would undoubtedly cause an accident.
