Constant double parking all day long. Causes traffic jams and makes biking dangerous.

Drivers along Clarkson are incredibly aggressive with lots of double parking - a protected bike lane along clarkson would be great. I frequently see people just biking on sidewalk here to feel safe.

Cars constantly parked in bike lane all along Bedford Ave that force bikers into dangerous rush-hour traffic on a busy commuter road.

Bike parking ought to be added here as it is near both a public school AND the 2/5 train.

Linden is one of the few east west connectors that goes thru Cb17 & vicinity but has no bike infrastructure at all, despite it touching other routes like at Bedford. It needs some cycling design added.

I've gotten lost here because the bike lane simply ends without any notice or wayfinding. A connection along Ditmas Avenue would naturally line Claredon Rd & Rockaway Parkway bike lanes.

Bike parking near the playground would help kids (and parents) get to the park easier.

E 53rd is extremely wide and has no markings except for painted chicanes by the schools. It'd be more robust if this was a north bound protected bike lane for the Eastern side of CB17 and another parallel street served as a southbound route. OR it may even be wide enough for a two way lane really.

The turn to & from Bedford & Claredon is currently one of the ONLY bike lane intersections in CB17. But Claredon is wide and it is hard to make the turn From Bedford onto Claredon East bound without a protected intersection type of design. Also, it is just terribly wide here and doesn't feel safe overall.

Auto mechanic shop ALWAYS has cars blocking both the bike lane and the sidewalk. Enforcement needs to be beefed up, or the lane needs to be made protected so it is self enforcing.

Right next to PS6... there should be ample bike corrals to help encourage kids to bike to school.

A lot of the markings here are faded ( i think only the outside line of the bike lane was restriped) and there are many potholes all along Bedford, especially here... so it is worrisome for novice riders.

Bedford is a key North-South connector but this intersection with Foster is disastrous. There is no clear signage or way-finding about how to best navigate the irregular intersection caused by the Flatbush intersection & there is zero protection despite there being many buses here. Entire intersection needs a redesign and bikes (and pedestrians) need more safety.

This intersection is terrifying to cross and makes no sense. There must be crashes here regularly.

Bike lane is needed at least from Eastern Parkway and south to connecting routes beyond Flatbush avenue/Avenue H

There need to be signs stating the city's speed limit on foster ave between Utica Ave and Schnectady Ave. We need to have cameras for checking speed limits and giving tickets on this stretch of Foster Ave. Alot drivers are driving exceedingly fast in this area and it has become extremely dangerous to walk along this street. Besides camera, one other way of addressing the problem is to place a stop light at Foster Ave and East 49th Street.

Speeding traffic along New York Avenue at all hours. Road is too narrow south of Foster, so traffic becomes congested and drivers speed when road clears. Changes to traffic patterns here would have great benefit, including if bike lanes are added to give junction / commercial (Target) patrons access alternatives in the neighborhood.

Bike lane along New York Avenue would slow down speeding traffic along New York Avenue and better connect neighborhood residents with commercial destinations at the junction without the need for cars.

Flatbush Ave. / Avenue H at the Target is HORRIFIC and dangerous. The lack of effective traffic management here is shameful and contributes to road rage and danger for pedestrians and cyclists.

Bike lanes along Clarkson ave and Remsen ave are not needed. It’s a predominantly residential area for families of 4 and adding bike lanes will not only increase traffic but will take away parking that’s already almost non existent. The bike lanes will also cause more traffic for emergency vehicles and forcing cars to then double park more, and park on fire hydrants. I say “NO” to bike lanes in CB17.

There's no east way to get to Prospect Park from any bike lane in CB17. The city is essentially cutting off an already park-starved neighborhood from an important recreational resource by not figuring out a safe route to connect us to the park.

The double parking issue at church and nostrand makes the road unsafe for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists. It's impossible to navigate during rush hour.

Too many vehicles double park in the bike lane route on Bedford avenue between Clarkson Ave and Snyder ave. This makes for incredibly dangerous conditions for cyclists! Again, all efforts should be considered to move bike lanes in between the sidewalk and parking lane. It happened on Flatbush avenue alongside the park, and it's working wonderfully.
