Description

My husband and I just came back from a walk on Q-Ave and almost at the intersection of Q-ave and East Grand, contractors are installing u-verse. the last van was parked on sidewalk so that I had to roll my baby carriage (WITH BABY!!) onto Q-Ave. I spoke to the driver of the van who told me that there was a police officer right there who was "directing" traffic. I said something to the police man and he said that people would park on the street if their cars didn't get hit. WHAT??? So...according to the police...its more important to keep cars safe than people/kids. I wasn't aware of the new policy on sidewalks. YAHOO New Haven.
