Recently a driver in Fremont expressed real concern about overgrown traffic circle vegetation. He said that if he hadn’t been driving really slowly and cautiously around one of the circles, he’d have hit a pedestrian who was fully hidden by the rampant growth on the
circle. We went out to take a look. Top photo–a very dangerous planting gone wild at N41st and Woodland Park N…runner completely hidden and in danger from vehicle rounding the circle from where the photographer is standing. Center–a reasonable and safe circle. Bottom–becoming dangerous.
You can report graffiti and traffic circle vegetation issues to the Customer Service Bureau: http://www.seattle.gov/customer-service-bureau “You can fill out an online form or even download the find-it-fix-it app for your phone. All service requests are screened by the CSB and forwarded to the appropriate agency like SPU for graffiti or SDOT for the traffic circles, and sometimes even the Law Department depending on the issue,” according to Brendan Brophy, Precinct Liaison Attorney, North Precinct, Seattle
