  • Crescent St New Haven, CT, 06515, USA - Beaver Hills
    Please add a crosswalk at Bellevue and Crescent or a sidewalk on the south side of Crescent Street between the Boulevard and Colony. Currently there is no safe way for people coming from Bellevue to cross Crescent St. It is very dangerous, and our street is home to many families with young children who cross the street to visit Beaver Ponds Park and Bowen Field on a regular basis.
  • 43 Lawrence St New Haven CT 06511, United States - East Rock
    The stretch of Lawrence St. between State and Nicoll is a speed zone Certain cars/motorcycles (usually repeat offenders) will often top 50 mph through this small stretch How long must this go on before someone is killed trying to cross the road?
  • New Haven Ct 06511 United States - Edgewood

    THREE more car crashes *this* week alone (9/5/2020- 9/10/2020). The blinking yellow light (Ellsworth) + blinking red light (Edgewood) are ineffective & dangerous. The newish yellow posted signs of "Cross traffic does not stop" are *not* working, & we & the neighbors on this block continue to be concerned & frustrated that these crashes occur again & again & again. As this intersection is also a CTTransit spot with active riders, this makes it unsafe for pedestrians getting on/off buses.

    Reporting the crashes at this same intersection time & again for years to our alder & the Dept. of Transportation, Traffic, & Safety has led to no meaningful change or increased safety. The car crashes continue. The screeching of tires from near misses is a daily sound. The traffic signals at this intersection cause confusion & danger so no pedestrian is safe here.

  • 14 Everit St New Haven CT 06511, United States - East Rock
    Streets running parallel to Whitney: Everit, Orange, Livingston, need traffic calmers. Excessive speeding, noise pollution from loud mufflers, dangerous driving throughout residential neighborhood where children and Seniors walk regularly, all causing quality of life damage.
  • 150 Ferry St New Haven, CT, 06513, USA - Fair Haven
    More Police presence is needed in this area! The last two weeks my car and two neighbors cars were broken into, we know not to keep anything of value in cars. My neighbor has a security camera and the women that broke into my car is a known prostitute , both my neighbors it looked like young kids got their cars. My neighbor also had a glass bottle busted all over her car too! We are good working citizens and try to look out for each other, but enough is enough! Also- speeding and blowing the Stop Signs is a CONSTANT over here too!
  • Trumbull St New Haven, CT, 06510, USA - Yale University Campus
    Trumbull St with Lincoln st needs a tragic light to ensure safety of pedestrians crossing at the crosswalk. Cars and trucks are constantly over 50 mph speed as they enter and exit the highway, and they never stop for pedestrians to cross. I live at Trumbull, and it’s usually a hassle trying to cross the street without getting hit by cars over the limit. A sign at the crosswalk asking for drivers to stop for pedestrians to cross also would help. Thank you!
  • 137 Nicoll St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - East Rock
    This morning I was riding my bike on East Rock Farnam Drive. When I got to the base at Orange Street I found all the barricades had been thrown into the woods. Furthermore I saw privately owned automobiles using this road. Since Farnam Drive is legally closed to vehicular traffic this creates a threat to pedestrians using the road legitimately. This metal 'ROAD CLOSED' sign with heavy cement base was thrown into the woods and is located not far from the intersection of Farnam & Orange towards the Mill River.
  • 195-205 Elm St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Downtown
    Yale students blindly step into traffic in between High and College. There is a Yale path that ends in the middle of the block where the students cross illegally. PLease close that gate to the path to direct the students to the paths at High and Elm.
  • 97 Everit St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - East Rock
    Everit Street is often subject to cars racing in excess of 40 MPH. Not only is this a residential street with many young families and pedestrians, it connects to the back of Hooker School, where many children and parents come and go. I suspect that people are using this street to quickly bypass the light on Whitney and/or to avoid the challenging intersection at Whitney and Cold Spring. I would greatly appreciate an assessment of this Street to see if there is a way to divert traffic or prevent speeding.

    Yale Ave & Chapel St New Haven, CT, 06515, USA - Westville
    Hi. The intersection at Yale and Chapel is dangerous. I was almost hit twice today when I was driving on Chapel thru the intersection. Cars on Yale (that have the blinking red) stopped for a second and then proceeded straight thru the intersection right in front of me. I had to slam on my breaks. The cars on Yale don’t know the cars traveling on Chapel don’t have to stop. The small signs posted below the stop signs on Yale are barely visible to drivers looking at the flashing stop light. There need to be signs hanging below the stop light in both directions so the drivers on Yale know drivers on Chapel don’t have to stop. PLEASE do this. It seems to be an inexpensive “fix” for a dangerous intersection.
  • 18-98 Fournier St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Beaver Hills
    Fournier needs a bike lane. This is the best connection from west side neighborhoods to Newhallville and the Farmington Canal bike trail. I ride it frequently and there is no shoulder and the cars speed fast. It's also a place people fish. This section needs to feel like a park, not a raceway. Cars need to slow to 10-15 MPH. This would be a great extension of the planned Crescent St,. bike lane.
  • New Haven Ct 06511 United States - East Rock
    Car drive really fast down this stretch of Livingston and it's really uncomfortable to bike on. Could the city put a protected bike lane next to the park instead of the currently underutilized on street parking?
