description

Bolivar Drive recently was "improved" by placing paver bricks inside of a rectangular concrete lattice. These bricks seem to be sinking leaving a concrete ridge on top. These ridges are on a downhill section of the road. Last Friday, just after crossing the Berkeley Bridge (I80) I descended toward Addison on Bolivar Dr. My front wheel hit a ridge, I lost control and went down lacerating my right knee in the process. I have been down this section many times before and didn't expect this. I was riding with friends who called the ambulance (Berkeley Police-report 17-63635). Had many stitches in Alta Bates ER. UPDATE 10-24-17: Submitted to Berkeley PW via their 311 site as well as sending note to staff. Highlighted injury occurred, and cited police report. Received service request number 371071.

Crack in cement on Oxford Street just wide enough to grab a road bike tire - flung me onto the pavement hard! Very dangerous, as too close to parked cars, so you have to cross over it! Update 11/8/16: Submitted to Berkeley PW. Received service request number 321716.

Traffic signal green for Channing, OFF for Shattuck during recent blackout

Assigned to:Unassigned

Case ID:: -14862

direction

westbound

type

traffic signal not triggered by bicycle

description

During a recent downtown power outage, I was riding west on Channing from Fulton. My light was green and I was going about 15 mph. When I got near Shattuck, a car "ran" the light, then another. I jammed my brakes on in time to avoid death. Their signal was off, mine green. It does not get worse than that! Why don't they go into a "failure mode" automatically if one is off? Even I could program that! Mind blowing. UPDATE 6-12-13: Submitted to Berkeley Public Works. Received service request number 301202. (Note: Changed report's "Jurisdiction" from Alameda to Berkeley.)
