Fix Your Street Challenge: Tips & Resources

by Stef McDonald

May 3, 2013

So here's our challenge: Stop complaining and do something about your transportation gripes. Fix your street!

Big fixes may require help from town or city officials, like installing a traffic light or stop sign in a dangerous intersection—in that case, be the squeaky wheel and consult our guide to getting things done.

But your problem might just be solved with a street hack. We've already featured some amazing ideas on here and here and here. For more inspiration:

Make your own bike lane 

Transform your corner bus stop or an abandoned phone booth

Create your own signs for bike and pedestrian safety

Trim that tree that's blocking the stop sign on the end of your block

Plant seed bombs or native plants to give life to a dreary landscape

Also, be sure to check out all the latest posts on our Transportation hub. And, of course, Do It.
