  • 4093 Ne 33rd Ave Portland, OR 97212 - Alameda

    The stretch of NE 33rd between Prescott and Fremont really needs some ways to calm the traffic down. Signage, speed-traps, traffic humps, whatever - cars are cruising through here - both dangerous and noisy.

    though the speed limit says 30, cars go 40+

  • 101 399 E Burnside St Portland, OR 97232, USA - Kerns

    The bike lane is still dangerous for a number of reasons (less-than-ideal curve, poor drainage, and now a rough surface where the old striping was ground off). It would be much better to widen the sidewalk and simply stripe a cycle track onto what is currently the sidewalk. Ramps could be added just like on the Hawthorne Bridge.

    Children, pets and pedestrians are endangered daily (especially nightly) by speeding traffic on this double-block. Speed traps or speed bumps would help considerably.

  • Se 113th And E Burnside Portland, OR - Hazelwood

    People regularly pull over and park on 113th or Pine Ct, just off burnside, and this huge fat balding guy on a bike rides up and meets them. They get out of the car and walk with down the street a bit and go back to their car and leave. The bike guy rides off. These people look SKETCHY and I AM SICK OF THIS. There are a lot of little kids here and this isn't OK.

  • N. Rosa Parks Way & Concord Ave Portland, OR - Arbor Lodge

    Even though this is a neighborhood, people speed like crazy through here. When waiting to cross the street, nobody will stop. Once I was already half-way across when somebody came speeding along, not paying attention, and came about two feet from hitting me - I had to be pulled back. They didn't even bother to slow down or stop to make sure I was okay. I'm tired of this.

  • N. Lombard St. And N. Ida Ave. Portland, OR - Cathedral Park

    The Switch that controls the Pedestrian signal to cross N. Lombard Street--when crossing from North to South on the East side of the street--does not work. The switch is located on the Northeast corner of N. Lombard Street and N. Ida Avenue (at the corner next to the car wash/gas station). This intersection is 2 blocks from Roosevelt High School and has a substantial amount of pedestrian traffic from students.

  • Blind spot Archived
    3901-4199 Ne Senate St Portland, OR 97213, USA - Center

    Cars need to have a stop sign or a speed bump to slow down traffic. Pedestrians coming around the corner can't see the cars and visa versa. The cars drive too fast too close to the curb here.
