820 East Fourt Street - Downtown Sharlotte
There needs to be signs posted at this intersection that pedestrians have the right of way in the crosswalk and cars must yield. Or the city needs to make this intersection a no turn on red. I park in the parking deck and cross this intersection twice a day and there isn't a week that goes by that at least three to four times a week a car wanting to turn on onto McDowell from Fourth Street either comes very close to hitting me because they're looking the other way, or they get tired of how long it takes me and start blowing their horns. I even have had people yell out their window that their light is green and they have the right of way when in fact they don't. I believe this to be an extremely dangerous intersection for pedestrians and if something isn't done, someone is going to be seriously injured or worse because of the drivers ignorance of the traffic laws or because they're not willing to yield the right of way.
Corner Of Fourth And Mcdowell Charlotte, NC - Downtown Sharlotte
Walking from the county parking garage to the courthouse across McDowell I have seen dozens of people almost hit by drivers who are turning right on red or even after the light changes to green. Apparently most motorists in this city don't realize pedestrians have the right of way in a crosswalk. After two people were hit at the intersection of Third and McDowell signs were put up notifying drivers that pedestrians had the right of way. I would like to see these signs put up here as well before someone is hurt.

I would love to say that the problem has been resolved but people still disrespect the fact that these kids are trying to cross the street to get to the school. I did notice the presents of police cars seemed to have a impact while they where there,I understand these people are trying to get to their distanation.
If one of the drivers hit a student they will not make it to work these people get road rage when I myself am doing right by these students the speed around me like they are crazy,I really wish more than a caution light was set in place.
I often wondered if it would take putting a crossing gaurd in the school zone to protect these student from these speeding cars, I understand the school is a Charter School but the students still deserve the respect they need to cross to the school without fearing they will be hit by a car.
Thanking you in advance

At the intersection of 3rd and McDowell street, as you are crossing McDowell from the Marshall Park side of 3rd Street heading towards 277 you cannot see the crosswalk sign due to a tree branch that is in the way. I have asked the landscapers who were working in the area to cut the tree branch but they have not done so. It makes it extremely difficult to cross there when you cannot see the sign.

Cars and trucks are parking on both sides of the street narrowing traffic down to one lane and this is a two-way street. No parking meters or signs for no parking posted but there are none on Tryon St and no one parks there all day.
S Graham St Charlotte, NC 28202, USA - Downtown Sharlotte
Right turn only lane from S. Graham Street onto Mint Street at the BOA stadium is not marked properly. A sign (or two) is needed on Graham to let people know the right lane is right turn only.

Caldwell And 6th Streets - Downtown Sharlotte
The general manager of lot has been notified but signs have not been moved. Large signs are blocking the view of exiting traffic onto Caldwell Street from the Central Parking lot at 6th and Caldwell Street. The signs saying $4 are tied to the fence which blocks view of oncoming traffic.
Corner Of Bland St. And Winnifred St - Downtown Sharlotte
THE CITY RECENTLY PUT UP STOP SIGNS AND MADE IT A FOUR WAY STOP. THERE ARE CARS,TRUCKS,ETC. THAT CONTINUE TO RUN THE STOP SIGNS COMING AND GOING UP BLAND ST. AND CORNER OF WINNIFRED ST. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME CLOSE CALLS FOR ACCIDENTS FROM THIS ISSUE. ALSO YOU CAN'T SEE FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF YOU IF YOUR WERE TURNING LEFT ONTO BLAND STRRET BECAUSE OF THE TREE AND BUSHES,ALSO THE STOP SIGN THAT IS ON THE SIDE WALK IS ALMOST IN THE TREE WHERE YOU CAN'T SEE IT TILL IT'S TOO LATE ALSO.. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED LIKE WRITING TICKETS AND ADD A FOUR WAY STOP LITE THERE...
