42-60 Pitkin St Central Manchester, CT 06040, USAThis road hass a tremendous amount of traffic which is only adding to the poor condition of the road. The sidewalks also are in desperate need of a permanent replacement not spotty repair with asphalt. This is an eyesore to this once charming neighborhood.· Reported by Brian Bourque · Flag Flagged
Intersection Of Hilliard And Adams Street Manchester, CTIf Traveling WEST on Hilliard Street when you approach the Traffic Light at Adams Street the Light Will NOT Change unless you are on an approx 1 Foot area section of the Road, in fact the Light will cycle several times and let Eastbound traffic cross Adams Street but the WEST Bound side will Stay Red and will NOT Change unless you finally back up or roll far enough forward into the intersection that your vehicle is recognized, many times after sitting there while the light cycles several times and changing for the East bound but Staying Red for the WEST Bound traffic I will either go through the Red light or Turn Right and then have to cut thru the Fiber Optic Company Property only to come back East to the Light to Turn Right to Go South on Adams Street, This light needs to be addressed , There is an Optic Sensor up on a pole that faces the WEST Bound traffic on Hilliard but perhaps it is also broken or ineffective ??? The problem still exists and often occurs at night when there is only one car at the Light heading West on Hilliard and the Light will cycle for East Bound cars on Hilliard then the light cycles back to North and South Green, basically ignoring the fact that there is a car sitting on the Westbound side of Hilliard waiting to cross ...· Reported by Annoyed and Aggrevated - Still NOT Fixed ??? · Flag Flagged

493 Adams Street Manchester, ct 06040Cars travel at a very high speed in a 30 mile a hour zone. Not that it makes a difference but there are only 2, 30 mile a hour signs on Adams St. between Middle Turnpike and Center St. one at each end.
I don't know how cars can start from the light on Middle Turnpike past our house going as fast as they do, even wake us up in the middle of the night hearing cars making loud noise from speeding.
We can't get out of our driveway at certain times of the day, traffic is backed up past our house from the light on Middle Turnpike. Not often someone will let us out.
When trying to make a left into our driveway, cars have even passed me on the left and many times they sneak past us on the right, up over the curb and almost side swipe us on the right. When coming from Center St. taking a right into our driveway, because a telephone pole is between 2 driveways we have to make a wider swing to avoid the pole and if we wait for traffic to pass coming toward us, cars beep as us, can't they see what we have to do to get into our driveway. Even if no traffice is coming and we are turning they will pass us on the left. Can't they wait.
Beside ambulances that go up our street SEVERAL times a day, cars travel just as fast and do ambulances need to use their sirens from one end of the street to the other even at night.
Seeing I am doing so much complaining, when I learned to drive the rule was if an ambulance or fire truck was coming toward you or behind you we were to pull over and wait for them to pass. I don't know how many times I have pulled over to have cars pass me and keep going. The other day a fire truck was coming toward us on Center St. two cars were behind me. I pulled over, car behind me pulled over the third car passed us both, and before the fire truck passed the car behind me pulled out and came around me. Where did they learn to drive?
I almost got hit one day stopping at a 3 way stop sign. I was going to take a left but had a feeling the car coming toward me was going to fast to stop, yes he never did stop right through the stop sign. I would have gotten hit broad side. I have seen this so many times, what are people thinking. It was also a stop sign in front of a school.
If only a police car would sit on Jarvis Rd. they would make a lot of money on tickets.· Reported by Beverly Logan · Flag Flagged
School St And Spruce St Manchester, CTThe traffic light gets stuck and will not detect traffic heading east or west on School St. This creates a safety hazard as people need to get to work and often have to go through the red light.· Reported by Kevin · Flag Flagged
I384 Keeney Street Offramp Central Manchester, CTThe I384 westbound offramp onto Keeney Street is dangerous. Drivers frequently are looking for an opening to enter Keeney St, and not paying attention to cyclist crossing in front of them. Note that the sidewalk which crosses the ramp is part of the Charter Oak bike/ped trail, so bike traffic is heavy. I have seen several close calls. There should be a crossing painted on the pavement, and signs for both cars and bike/peds.· Reported by Phillip Morris · Flag Flagged
Meadow Lane And Wellman RdTraffic problem at the intersection of Meadow Lane and Wellman Road. Can't see around the corner coming out of Meadow Lane because of high hedge and car often parked near the intersection on the west side of Wellman which causes south bound cars to move over into the path of the car coming around the corner. There was a recent accident at this corner.· Reported by J. Larry Cochran · Flag Flagged
Buckland Hills Drive @ Buckland St Central Manchester, CT
Also note: Short yellow light times at intersections have been shown to increase the number of traffic violations and accidents. Conversely, increasing the yellow light duration can dramatically reduce red-light violations at an intersection.
Some local governments have ignored the safety benefit of increasing the yellow light time and decided to install red-light cameras, shorten the yellow light duration, and collect the profits instead.· Reported by Factual Jackson · Flag Flagged
