Dangerously quick left-turn signal AcknowledgedS Columbus Blvd And Christian Street Philadelphia, PA - Queen Village
The traffic light on northbound Columbus Boulevard at Christian Street has a dangerously quick signal for left turns. Rarely do more than four cars get through it before it turns red.
Cars must dash through the very short left-turn lane, swing the wheel to the left and drive over wicked bumps and potholes.
Something must be done about the road (already reported) and about the signal timing. This is an accident waiting to happen. A simple tweak to, say, 15 seconds might save a life.
Trash-riddled block Archived700-799 S. 8th St. Philadelphia, PA - Bella Vista
The 700 block of South 8th Street (between Christian and Fitzwater streets) is perpetually covered with trash. We've lived nearby for seven years and at no point has the block been clean.
Is the city aware that this block exists? Does street sweeping exist?
It truly is a blight on the neighborhood, and such disregard invites crime.
