  • 1559 Pacific Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda
    The sidewalk in front of this address is a broken ankle waiting to happen. There are chunks of concrete that are missing. My kids tripped on it during halloween. I tripped on it this morning while going for a run. Please fix it ASAP before someone actually breaks an ankle.

    Reported in April but still not fixed, and Halloween is coming with hundreds of kids in the neighborhood: three streetlights in a row along the even-numbered side of the street are burned out.

  • Constitution Way Alameda, California - Alameda
    Homeless have set up camp on Constitution, near roadway in bushes, across from Marina Village shopping center. This becomes a distraction for motorists, and this is not a legal place to live.
  • Safeway Driveways On Island Drive Alameda, CA - Alameda
    Along the bike path on Island Drive two large driveways that serve as the exit and entrance to the Safeway / CVS - harbor bay landing shopping center pose a danger to kids riding that path to and from school. The stop sign at the exit is small and I have often seen drivers "roll" through it and have near misses of hitting a child on a bike . In addition , when a bicyclist stops or pauses at this intersection to check for cars they are blocked from the cars view both by the stop sign and an additional signpost that is there - causing an unsafe visibility issue.For cars entering the lot from Island Drive there is no stop sign - so Cars then turn in and cross the bike path at a faster rate from Island Drive.

  • 1600 Park Street Alameda, California - Alameda

    I wish to report an extremely unsafe hazard that caused me bodily injury and could have caused even more severe injury or death.On the night of Wednesday, May 18 at approximately 11 pm, I was biking in Alameda. I turned right from Lincoln heading NE on Park Street towards the Park St. Bridge. There were no cars parked along Park and I rode on the right hand side, near the sidewalk to be safe from traffic. I had a front and rear light and was wearing a helmet. Suddenly, my front wheel hit a curb – completely detached from the side walk and with no visible signs, markers, reflectors or any thing to make it visible to a cyclist. I flew over my handle bars, hit the back right side of my head, my back right shoulder and rolled over having done a complete flip onto the curb-median. Though I am bruised and beat up, with pain in my AC joint, head, neck, and shoulder, I did not break anything (I went to the doctor and got x-rays), and I will recover. My bicycle was totaled (bent rim, shattered front fork, bent frame and I broke my helmet).

    This curb is invisible at night. As the attached photo shows, it also has extremely low visibility in broad day light. I was not the first to hit this obstruction. At Alameda Bicycle, the staff there said they have heard of the same thing happening to others. I am certain I won’t be the last to hit this.

    I am shocked that the city would place a curb with absolutely no visibility in the middle of a through fare for traffic and cyclists. I respectfully request, for the safety of both cyclists and vehicles, that you immediately remove this extreme hazard.

    I am also curious, what possible reason can there be for putting this obstruction there?

  • Webster And Atlantic Alameda, California - Alameda

    Please see issue re: traffic enforcement.

    As Sgt DeRespini correctly states, this is an issue with Planning. Can the Planning Dept request the organizers of the Antiques Faire to hire officers in order to ensure there is no gridlock?

    West End residents are tired of being subjected to this hassles every month for the past several years. How much longer do we have to put up with this nuisance?

  • 306 Maitland Dr Alameda 94502, United States - Alameda
    Maitland Drive Traffic Relief
    My wife and I have suffered thru yet another collision to our parked vehicles right in front of our home. Our insurance has had to pay out over 90k in property damage to 3 totaled vehicles in the past 27 months. Every car traveling Maitland Drive is SPEEDING! we need 24 hr speed controls. We also need a bike lane on this block it has always been a bike route but is not in compliance with safe access rules.
    Shady business deals between the city and developers, and back room agreements with HOA's have kept Island Drive closed to the parkway. Harbor Bay and Bay Farm residents need this opened as was originally intended.
    What we got instead is a silly road at the end of harbor bay parkway that connects to Mecartney road that serves no one.
    My suggestion to the city before lawsuits begin is the last 2 blocks of Maitland Dr. should be one way outbound, that gives alameda the traffic relief needed in the mornings and safe access compliance for cyclists. This would only cost a few signs and paint.. easily and quickly done. For in bound traffic coming off Ron Cowin Pky we all get a little better look at who's entering alameda's back door by routing them around the golf course or continuing on HB pky to Mecartney Rd. Maitland Drive is just too narrow to support the volume of traffic, there's just no room for error.
  • 516 Central Avenue Alameda, California - Alameda

    For the second time in as many months, some jogging event has left dozens of non-biodegradable stickers all along the path of their event. The plastic stickers have the name printed on them.

    They stick on the ground for weeks, and sometimes won't even peel off. (See photo for residue of an orange sticker from last month.)

    Whoever is putting these down should be held responsible for cleaning up their mess.

  • Constitution Before Posey Tube Alameda, California - Alameda
    In the center divide just before entering the Posey tube on Constitution Way are two homeless encampments that have been growing now for several months. Time and again the people who are living in these encampments cross the two very busy streets in on coming traffic, often with items they have collected for their encampments, and creating a the very real possibility of an accident waiting to happen.
