Greater metro Atlanta in my areas of interest. For the right issue I am interested in doing a video report.
Alpharetta GA, USA - Alpharetta
At the entrance to the complex that includes 12387 Crabapple Road (Crabapple Montessori School), there is a right turn only lane from northbound Crabapple Road. At the same junction, many vehicles stop to turn left into the Kroger shopping center. As traffic is stopped to allow the left-turning vehicles to await safe crossing, vehicles traveling straight frequently use the right turn only lane to accelerate and pass the left-turning vehicle. This is a frequent and systemic problem. Parents of Crabapple Montessori notice multiple vehicles each day, and one parent was nearly hit on her bike by such a vehicle earlier this week. Please bring out traffic enforcement to cite violators and install delineators on the right turn only lane (like those at the entrance to North Farm off Houze Rd) to prevent the problem from continuing. The school has no school zone for speed and no protection from law breakers to keep families safe.
1030 Boulevard Se Atlanta, GA - Grant Park
The worst railroad tracks in Atlanta. The paving is uneven and the grates at the tracks constantly fall in, creating a moat several inches deep spanning the entire road. You can see scrape marks everywhere from cars bottoming out. Neighbors supposedly quit trying to have them fixed due to the battle over who is supposed to maintain the tracks - CoA or the RR track owners? The two times in seven years I've seen them fixed, they were broken again within weeks, and it took years to have them repaired again. We need a PERMANENT fix for this road which sees tens of thousands of cars, trucks and buses across is monthly.
3209 Kelly St scottdale, GA - Scottdale
Decalb county is not taking the responsibility to pave an official county road I called "planning & design" they said we do not have a plan for this road & dekalb county "roads & drainage" said its not their responsibility but I spoke to Mr. Jim McKenny cell# 4042974583 I told him that the unpaved road is forming channels preventing us from driving down the street to reach our homes he promised to pour some curbs to control the water flow but he disappeared & never answer my calls anymore please come take a look at a COUNTY ROAD in the USA, thank you
951 N. Indian Creek Drive Clarkston, GA - Clarkston
Need assistance to get DeKalb County to repair fence & secure gate behind Clarkston Library on Indian Creek Drive. Vandals are coming through the gate & fence and entering the Clarkston Community Center….destroying vegetable gardens and other projects made by the local residents. This past week vandals destroyed a patch of carrots grown by some children!!
The Center locks all gate access to the field during the evenings, weekends & holidays, however, until this fence is secured, the problem will persist. The Clarkston Chief of Police highly recommends “razor wire” in this area to prevent future destruction of the fence.
If the department responsible for county property would like to meet with me to review and discuss, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org . Prompt attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated before the gardeners begin planting in early March.
PS: once the fences are repaired, the community residents will place warning signs on the gate & fence to discourage entrance.
1373 W Nancy Creek Drive Northeast Atlanta, Georgia - Brookhaven
From 4:30 to 6:00pm, traffic backs up on West Nancy Creek Dr at Ashford-Dunwoody. Cars are lined up at least 1/2 mile down West Nancy Creek, and twice we've seen it backed up to the tear drop circle at Old Johnson Ferry near New Generations daycare which is 1 mile away. Please check the timing on these lights. Thanks!
Cartecay Dr At Sylvan Circle Atlanta, Georgia - North Atlanta
A. Please, can this hedge be removed? The hedge at 1368 Sylvan Circle (at Cartecay Dr) is causing 3 major problems: 1. encroaching Cartecay so pedestrians have nowhere to walk; 2. Cars making a right hand turn cannot see pedestrians; 3. blocking out stop sign.
B.Code Compliance: FENCE & HEDGE at 1376 Sylvan on Cartecay is built on right-of-way causing great danger to pedestrians --- walkers, strollers cannot get off the road as cars careen around the corner.
Crabapple Rd Alpharetta, GA - Alpharetta
On Crabapple Rd, heading north from the junction with Houze Rd (The Silos), the speed limit is marked 35 up to Green Rd.
Cars are violating this all the time endangering pedestrians and cyclists trying to drive/ walk along that road. The side walk is also not complete between Abbey Ct and Green Rd, making it impossible to walk safely along the road.
A bike lane would be a great addition as well as STRICT ENFORCEMENT OF THE SPEED LIMIT
Multiple families in Crabapple Crossroads, Braeburn and Crabapple community would use their bicycles to both shopping centers and school, if the road was not so dangerous!
Students from Milton Middle and High school run along that road and are also in danger of being run over by speeding cars or drivers on their phone not watching the road!
Please address this issue before serious accidents happen and people get injured!
I also want to add that there is technically no "legal" way to cross the road as a pedestrian at the Crabapple (Kroger) shopping centre on Crabapple Rd, as there is no crosswalk. When one wants to cross the road there, one is technically "jay walking" and since there are two professional office buildings and a school located there, there are people who would like to be able to cross that road to access the Crabapple Shopping centre.
A CROSSWALK there would be the bare minimum, to ensure safety and legality in crossing the road.
3242-3252 Ashford Dunwoody Road Northeast Atlanta, GA - North Atlanta
The area between Stratfield Drive and Humility Lane needs the sidewalk completed and the debris removed from the roadway. This is the only section of roadway that has an incomplete sidewalk. Kids, families, and runners / walkers have to dodge traffic and debris to get from neighborhood to neighborhood.
Ashford Dunwoody Rd@Mt Vernon Rd Dunwoody, Georgia - Perimeter Traffic Operations Program
People driving north on Ashford Dunwoody are continually turning left at the Mt. Vernon light in front of people trying to exit the Branches neighborhood. More recently they are becoming more aggressive with this illegal turn where three and four cars will turn left once the light turns, causing those driving straight out of the neighborhood to hit their brakes to avoid a collision with an illegal left turning vehicle that is not yielding to oncoming traffic. The Dunwoody police should monitor this intersection and issue tickets to decrease this behavior.
