Description

intersection of State St. and Grove St. driving towards downtown: State st. widens to 3 lanes: (1) left turn (onto Olive); (2) middle lane going straight; (3) right lane to either turn right onto Grove or stay straight on State ... State St. after the light is two lanes, so the middle lane (pre-light) should move straight into the left lane (post-light), the right lane (pre-light) should either turn right onto Grove or go straight and move into the right lane (post-light). Currently, cars from the middle lane (pre-light) always keep driving straight and into the right lane (post-light) thereby cutting off the other traffic - there have been several near-accidents, there is always plenty of honking by witless middle-lane drivers that assume they have the right of way to merge into any (post-light) lane they choose ... help! Please put up a clear sign show direction of traffic and put a dotted lane marker on the street surface (as is done in other locations in New Haven).
