Description

On a popular walking route for East Rock residents to get downtown (via Audubon St.), one crosses Trumbull St. at Lincoln Ave. Despite signs saying "yield to pedestrians in crosswalk" I find that not only do drivers not yield, they typically accelerate. From one end they are coming off of I-91 and still going highway speeds, on the other they are trying to make the light at Orange St. I almost get hit by cars here once a week or so. Does anyone else have this problem?

Maybe some blinking lights or a radar sign that tells drivers how fast they are going would help?
