The 7900 block of Walker has always been problematic with high speed traffic over the years and it's getting worse. I really think something needs to be done before someone is killed.. Kids have been hit by cars, almost everyone on this block has had everything from mirrors knocked off, to major damage to their car from being sideswiped. Of course it's always a hit and run no less. I really would like to see something done for the safety of the people in this area including my self living on this block for 45 years now.
So the problem... Walker Street from Sheffield going north there is not one stop sign all the way down to Decatur Street. Walker street is a very wide street from that distance. So vehicles come flying down Walker Street at a high rate of speed (because it's nice and wide with no stop signs) and then slow down or pause for the stop sign at Walker street and Decatur street. Then they speed back up from Decatur street north towards Rhawn street. Since Walker is a narrow street going north from Decatur towards Rhawn, these drivers go even faster down the block loosing control and hitting parked cars because the street is not as wide.
My solution from living here so long is this...
A) install a stop sign on Walker street at Hartel ave to slow the cars down some before they get to Walker and Decatur streets.
B) install a stop sign at Walker and Frost streets. So they only travel one small block and have to stop again before Rhawn street.
A and B together would also work great.
C) install a speed hump somewhere between Decatur and Frost Street on Walker street slowing the cars down going along the 7900 block of Walker Street. I've seen this work great in other neighborhoods. Personally I would love to see all three of these things done to end all the issues with the fast drivers.
I'm outside daily to maintain around my home keeping the streets clean and picking up the trash that blows around. I'm almost hit every time by some speeding motorist when I'm out there.
So could someone PLEASE PLEASE come out and look into this and you'll find it's a bad situation almost any time of day. This has been an on going problem for many years and it's getting worse that's why I figured it's time to reach out to the folks of the city via this forum as this site has worked great for me since it came on line and I've had great success and action with seeclickfix .
I've spoken with most of the people who live on this block and they all agree this issue needs to be looked into and resolved. I've had 4 cars heavily damaged and lost several mirrors over the years personally. I installed camera's around my home but they can't really make out the plate number when someone's car is damaged on the block. Please help us! Thank you!
4 VotesFix it! Voted!7025 Montague Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The attached photo shows the "No Menus" etc. sign I have posted on the front of my front gate porch on my property, 7025 Montague Street. Today, Dec. 31st, a menu from "Mojo's Pizza" (8107 Frankford Ave.) was left on my porch (which means the person opened the gate, bypassing the sign, and trespassed); and a menu from "The Original Venice" (3613 Rhawn Street) was placed on my porch - again, clearly ignoring the request of "no menus" and "no trespassing."
Please contact these businesses for violating the handbill ordinance, request they no longer leave their materials, and cite them with applicable fines for violating the request and trespassing on my property.
2767 Orthodox Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The "NO TURN ON RED" sign along the Richmond Street side of 2767 Orrhodox (Old English pizza, NW corner of Richmond and Orthodox) is facing away from traffic and needs to be fixed.
1742 Swamp Pike Gilbertsville, PA 19525, USA
The contractor who is responsible for the re-surfacing of Swamp Pike has done a poor job of stripping the road. The yellow double ines that were just painted on Swamp Pike between Gilbertsville Rd. and Rt. 663 are almost invisible in several areas. Before this job is signed off they need to re-paint these lines.

A box truck has been parked on the street for some time now. The street is a "NO TRUCK PARKING" street. Sign on street verifies this. Please contact the Parking Authority to handle this situation.
102 York Rd Willow Grove, PA
South on York Road at Davisville the light turns red while 1/2 block north, the light at York and Easton is still green, overfilling the distance between the two and creating gridlock when the light on Easton turns green. This situation also prohibits left turns (south) from Park Drive onto York (611). If the light at Davisville (sout 611) held green 5-8 seconds after the light at Easton went red, the situation would be eliminated. ((The reverse is also true for the northbound lanes). Stagger the light timing.

Bustard Rd. And Kriebel Rd Kulpsville, Pennsylvania
Ever since the new 4 way stop sign was put up on Bustard Rd. and Kriebel Rd. the traffic backs up on Bustard Rd. on the bridge. If there is a larger vehicle on the bridge the other side can't get over the bridge which causes more congestion. Take them down!
