All along Atlantic Avenue, cars block the sidewalk, seemingly with impunity. NYCDOT and the NYPD need to crack down on this. Sidewalks are public facilities, not places for auto repair shops to store cars at the expense of all other road users.

Poor zoning has left Atlantic Avenue dominated by auto repair shops. The city should strongly consider rezoning it for dense residential/mixed use development, which will make the streetscape much less hostile.

This massive intersection is too dangerous and could benefit from a roundabout. Every other city uses them, but NYC has been to shy to try them. In this age of Vision Zero, please make it work and try it out.

This is a very wide street that is a main route between Jamaica and downtown Brooklyn. There is plenty of room here for bikelanes, and those lanes would help to calm traffic, slowing drivers and making everyone safer.

Please show that you are committed to ALL aspects of Vision Zero. Not only are pedestrian safety fixes desperately needed but a protected bike lane as well. It is so dangerous to ride and Ive almost been hit several times and rammed into parked cars by agressive drivers.

Much of Atlantic Ave East Bound traffic splits here and shifts over to the Conduit, yet the stretch East of the Conduit remains wide with highway like speeds. Give it a Queens Blvd makeover and add a bike lane here to create a safer street.

A protected bike path is badly needed. There is a huge drop off in vehicle traffic east of Conduit Blvd. Traffic volume on this stretch of Atlantic does not require 3 lanes in each direction. One of the lanes each way should be reallocated to a protected bike path.

This pattern is very dangerous to people on bikes and encourages drivers to think they are on a highway. Very dangerous for a person on a bike to cross traffic exiting to the right, so that the bike can continue on Atlantic. Clear lanes for people on bikes need to be laid down.
