Traffic Light Reporting in Your City
Traffic lights may seem like a small thing to report, but this maintenance issue can cause injuries to people and expensive damages to vehicles. City governments are responsible for taking care of streets, sidewalks, streetlights, and traffic lights as part of taking care of public safety. The local Public Works Department wants to know about any maintenance issues, like traffic light complaints, so they can be fixed quickly.
It can be a hassle to figure out where to report local issues like traffic light problems, but DoNotPay makes traffic light reporting simple through its City Repairs product.
How to Report an Issue to the City
Reporting an issue with a traffic light in your city means first figuring out how to do that. In Philadelphia, there is a website to report problems with traffic lights. Boston also has a website, or for traffic signal outages in Boston, people can call 311. In Los Angeles County, traffic light problems can be called into 800-675-HELP (4357). Placing a report through DoNotPay takes away all the guesswork of what to do.
Injured as a Result of a Traffic Light Issue? Sue Your City or County for Compensation
If the malfunctioning traffic light resulted in an injury, DoNotPay has a feature where you can sue anyone in small claims court. You deserve compensation for any injury or property damage that resulted from the traffic light problem. In addition to just reporting the traffic light, you can use DoNotPay to request compensation for medical expenses or property damages. Keep in mind that many states have statutes of limitations, so file a Notice of Claim in a reasonable amount of time.
How Can I Gather Evidence to Prove My Damage Claim?
To submit a traffic light problem through DoNotPay, collect a little information.
- You'll need to note the date when you first noticed the traffic light issue and the date of any problems that you're requesting compensation for.
- Collect any supporting documents or extra evidence that you have. That might be photos, info from witnesses, or other tips.
DoNotPay makes submitting this information really easy. If you want to file a city repair report but don't know where to start, DoNotPay has you covered in 6 easy steps:
- Go to the City Repairs product on DoNotPay.
- Choose one of the following options:

- If you want to report an issue, choose which problem you would like to report (pothole, broken lights, etc.) and tell us more about when you first noticed the issue.
- If you want to request compensation, tell us whether you 1) suffered a personal injury, or 2) suffered from property damage. Then tell us more about the incident date, where it took place, and any expenses you have already paid. Include the names of witnesses if applicable.
- Upload supporting documents and other evidence files.
- Enter the amount you want to be compensated in damages and verify your e-signature.
