One of the challenges that cyclists deal with is the wide variety of road hazards. If you see a road hazard, report it to the RTC using our online hazard report form.
Can I take one with me?
Wallet size business cards are available that include a link and QR code for mobile phones, so that you can always carry the online hazard report with you. Contact us to request your own Hazard Report Cards.
What should I report?
Any road or sidewalk hazard that endangers or inconveniences cyclists; Potholes, glass in bike lanes, overgrown bushes, damaged sidewalks, nonfunctioning crossing buttons, etc.
What happens when I make a report?
Your report is forwarded to the responsible Public Works agency. A representative from the agency may call or email you for more information. Public works will look in to the hazard and decide how to address it.
What else can I do?
Be careful. Maintain your awareness when cycling, and look ahead so that you have time to avoid any hazards you see in your path.
Maintain your own property. Remember that property owners are responsible for adjacent sidewalks, so if the sidewalk in front of your house is unsafe, you will be responsible to fix the problem.
The Hazard Report Form is also available as a PDF that you can print. Once completed, you can mail or fax them back to the RTC.
