2 VotesFix it! Voted!Thornhill Dr Oakland ca, CAI walk my grandson to Montclair elementary school walking down thornhill crossing mountain Blvd, then up mountain to the school. There are numerous issues first crossing thornhill the cars are speeding, I have to wait while three cars sped pass me while I was in the crosswalk trying to cross. Then I have to walk outside in the road as I approach Mountain with cars speeding by. Then the traffic light at mountain and thorn hill does not work correctly. Then walking up mountain the sidewalk is asphalt and VERY uneven. I need to also say the bike lane while line on Thornhill is not readable or it has been so long since it was painted that has just faded away. Additionally some drivers seem to think Thornhill is a race track at all hours,days and night. Also there is no sidewalk from Thornhill elementary down to mountain with children walking down Thornhill as well as walking up Thornhill to that school. These conditions need to be corrected

Thanks! Thanked!1634-1648 Mountain Boulevard Oakland, CaliforniaOne of the pedestrian crossing buttons at the Mountain/Thornhill intersection does not work. The button is located at the northeast corner of the intersection for crossing over Thornhill. Pressing that button has no effect.

Please, can you replace this sign? It is in deplorable shape. It is the Yield to Pedestrians sign in the crosswalk on Thornhill Drive (in Montclair) between the 7-11 and Thornhill Coffee House. Tons of students and parents use this crosswalk, since there are several schools right in the area: Thornhill Elementary, MCPC, Smiles Preschool & Applegarten Preschool. We really need readable signs notifying drivers that this is a State Law, they must yield. It would really help improve the safety in this area if you replaced this sign. I have attached a picture of the worst side (but both are bad). I can email you a picture of the other side if you want. (I think I can only upload 1 picture.)
