This is a dangerous traffic situation for pedestrians.
Pedestrians on the south side of Elm heading towards Church come into conflict with drivers exiting the garage, which do not come to a complete stop or look to the right before driving away.
A high ranking member of the City of New Haven staff was observed texting while driving (exiting the garage) here at approximately 7:35PM last night - happy to provide more details if wanted. He was completely oblivious to a pedestrian who was trying to establish eye contact in order to safely cross the curb cut.
A raised sidewalk, narrowed exit (using bumped-out curbs) and system of speed bumps, as well as improved signage, would help here.
