Montgomery County MD is making lots of money due to the installation or Red Light Cameras. If a person is highly aware of these cameras and is determined not to get a ticket they may very well jam on the brakes if a yellow light comes when they are close to the intersection. If the driver directly behind them has no knowledge or care about these cameras there is a fair chance that they are going to plow right into the car in front of them.
General Getty Park Silver Spring, Maryland
There are dozens of rats running around the parking lot of General Getty Park. If you pull into the lot at night you can see them running across the lot to the wooden fence and bushes that divide the homes from the lot. There are a lot of children that play in that park and it's dangerous having large rats running around there.

To get onto the Beltway Inner Loop from Southbound Wisconsin Ave (MD-355) there is a left hand merge lane which ends in about 3/4 mile. However, many self-centered types are jumping the queue during congested times and treating this as a passing lane. It's bad enough that this was engineered as a left merge to begin with, but these jerks are adding to the merge issue, not helping.
Someone please post a "No Queue Jumping" or "No entry from right lanes" notice, post a high fine for this behavior, and enforce it. I have witnessed at least 5 rear-end collisions at this location caused by thru traffic entering this lane for no reason other than selfishness.

There are numerous, large potholes to the entrance of the parking lot across from old anglers inn. Smaller cars are bottoming out and all cars taking a left have to slow down considerably to avoid the potholes which them puts them in danger of getting hit by oncoming traffic. Short term, the potholes should be filled. This such a highly used area that a permanent solution should considered such as permeable concrete that will not erode but will still absorb water and not effect the ecosystem near the water.

Several vehicles are causing near accidents when attempting to cross or get onto New Hampshire Ave from the Apartment complex. They need a light or some other safe way to get to the Apartments. Its very dangerous during rush hour especially.
301 Mansfield Road Silver Spring, Maryland
The sensor for the traffic light at Mansfield was dug up during repaving and not replaced, leading to needless changes of the light and increased congestion on Wayne all times of day.

This house continues to be a problem. I recently reported it for grass which has grown 3-feet high. The county is finally getting involved over the grass.
The house at 12702 Flack Street has been vacant for more than one year. A notice posted in the front window states that the property is owned by Chase Home Finance LLC. Phone # 877.790.1035 (LPS Field Svcs 440.633.4100). The grass gets cut infrequently, so the property looks shabby. There is trash, piles of yard debris, and standing water in the back yard. All of these are attractions to rats. Rats have been observed by neighbors. In addition, there was break in, which was reported to police, sometime in late Jan or February. The bank was alerted to the break in -- their response was to pull the broken window closed (without repairing the glass) and changing the locks -- the broken window is on the left side of the house. This kind of neglect is unacceptable. Our hope is that the property (the house seems to be in good shape) be cleaned up and sold quickly. A vacant house is a magnet to vermin and vagarants. Our neighborhood does not need either.

Not one thing has been done about this house. It still stands burned through the roof and trash is collecting in the yard.
About 6 months ago, the house at 12825 Valleywood Drive burned. It is a total loss and is posted as condemned. Neighbors believe a bank owns the property. It is time to get this eyesore cleaned up. The house will need to be razed -- which is a start. An empty lot which a mowed lawn is better than a burned out shell. The front door of the house is now sitting open. The property is a mess. It is an open invitation to rats and more. There may be standing water in the basement which will become a mosquito farm very quickly. Let's get this cleaned up.

There are several biased traffic lights in Montgomery County. By biased I mean that going one way is much longer that going the other way. One is at the intersection of Westlake Dr. and Tuckerman La. is very long if you are headed up Westalke Dr. to turn left on Tuckerman. It is very frustrating. There are several other biased lights in the County that I will report after I double check the street names.
