Dashcam for Your Bike: Safe street advocate in Lawrenceville, Armin Samii, developed a lightweight app for cyclists that works like a car dash cam. Download and give it a try – it’s lightweight and automatically sends 311 reports when a hazard or obstruction is detected in the bike lane. Available for iOS and Android. Thanks, Armin!!
Use 311 to report and track issues you see in Greenfield any day you’re out. It helps both the city and us, as a neighborhood, identify, track, and resolve our issues. In the event of a real emergency, contact 9-1-1.
