  • 10301 Monroe Rd Matthews, NC 28105, USA - Matthews
    I am mobility challenged and use an electric wheelchair and CATS bus. My bus stop is in front of the Legacy Apts at Gander Cove Lane and Monroe Rd. in Matthews/Charlotte. There is no crosswalk or light for pedestrians and I have to wait until a car comes out of the apartments and trips the light before I can cross the road, and then the light is not long enough for me to safely finish crossing the street. Also there is not a sidewalk on the other side of the street from this intersection to just before Galleria Dr. I have to cross the street at Gander Cove and then cross the street again at Galleria, 1 block later. I have had several very close calls and am afraid of my safety when crossing this very busy road on a daily basis.

    Pineville Matthews Road - Hembstead
    There is a huge pot hole on Highway 51 in front of Providence High School. It is near the border of Matthews and Charlotte line. It is in the right hand lane heading towards Matthews. It is nearly a sinkhole. Someone is going to blow a tire or break an axle in that hole.

  • 2501-2725 Pleasant Plains Rd Matthews, NC 28105, USA - Matthews
    3 or 4 of the street lights placed on Pleasant Plains Rd. Are either burned out or are not working. This is a busy narrow road and there have been several deer related incidents. This is a disaster waiting to happen espically with all the neighborhoods.

  • 2265-2311 Matthews Township Parkway Matthews, NC - Matthews
    There needs to be a double left turn lane at this intersection. The cars back up all the way past the shopping center intersection. The cars trying to make a right from the shopping center can't get in the left turn lane at all when it is backed up which is usually the case.

  • 113-199 State Road 1009 Matthews, NC 28105, USA - Matthews
    In the middle of downtown Matthews, NC are 3 speed bumps within 50 yards of each other. The speed bumps are too steep (Ramp angle), too tall, and right after the breakover the ramp the center of the speed bump is lower. This causes my car to bounce violently as the suspension compresses on the ramp but as it breaks over the ramp the bottom falls out. Trailer tongues have drug on the bumps as well. My question is do these speed bumps meet any of our DOT regulations as to their design and build and the frequency of them. In downtown Matthews there is a rough railroad track as well to add to the bouncing. Take a news truck, obey the speed limit see how rough and unsettling it is to traverse.

  • 412-678 Weddington Road Matthews, NC 28105, USA - Matthews
    Between 7:10 - 7:15 am each school day, two different CMS buses bypass traffic that is waiting in the left turn lane of Weddington Rd to turn left onto S. Trade St in Matthews. These buses travel in the right turn lane, speed past stopped traffic that is waiting in the left turn lane, only to cut in front of cars if drivers leave a gap or worse, I have witnessed buses go all the way to the intersection and make a left turn from the right turn lane! I have witnessed near collisions and I have called the CMS Transportation Office three times and nothing has changed. Why can't these buses wait in traffic just like everyone else?

  • 2401 Keziah Rd. matthews, NC - Marshbrooke
    We are supposed to get $400 a month in child support. The state releases only $50 a month to us and holds $350 every month for the past 3 years. When we call the state they keep us on hold for over an hour and tell us the case is being reviewed. Reviewed for 3 years? When we ask for a supervisor they tell us one will call in 24 to 48 hours and we never get a call. On one call we were asked, "why do you need it now?" That is $12,600 we are owed in back pay. This is not a hand out we are asking for. It is money payed in and the state is keeping it from us. Please help us.

  • Nc 51 & Idlewild Rd Matthews/Mint Hill, NC - Marshbrooke
    The light pattern was recently changed at the intersection of NC 51 (Matthews mint hill rd.) & Idlewild Rd. which causes major back ups for those coming out of the Mint Hill area toward Matthews in the morning! There seems to be no reason for this as the traffic is not backed up in either direction on Idlewild?

  • 588-698 Reverdy Ln Matthews, NC 28105, USA - Matthews
    When you turn onto Reverdy Lane, you go down a hill and the road bends to the right. Right at the bend on the left side, there is broken up road that has been like this for years. Most cars avoid it and go around. There also needs to be a warning sign just before that at a neighborhood where cars come out to warn drivers that can't see due to the hill that somebody might be pulling out and they need to slow down.

  • 1327-1499 Matthews-Mint Hill Road Matthews, NC - East Forest
    The U turn must yield sign must be moved to eye level on the median so cars notice it more. There have been alot of near accidents because the people making u turns think they have right of way. The people turning right onto Independence from Matthew-Mint Hill Rd have a green light too and have the right of way. Also the left turn signal is too short now because most people do u turns which slow/stop the traffic making a left turn.
