  • Fountain And Emerson New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    The crosswalk on Emerson and Fountain has no light. I have always wondered why anyone would even bother to build a crosswalk without a traffic light, or even a stop sign, for that matter. What's worse is that this intersection is right next to a school, and only a block away from Chapel Haven, a school for disabled adults. I cannot stress enough how dangerous it is for people who are mentally and, in some cases, physically disabled to have to cross this intersection. especially if they live on the other side of the road. Something has to be done about this. We need a light so that people can cross safely.
  • Whalley And Dayton New Haven, Connecticut - Amity
    The crosswalk at the corner of Whalley Ave. and Dayton St. is practically useless to pedestrians. Even with the right of way, there is a constant flow of traffic coming from either direction. Not only is this a dangerous intersection, but it's only a block from Chapel Haven, a school for adults with disabilities. For some of them, the fact that they have a disability makes it all the more difficult for them to safely cross the intersection. To prevent the possibility of someone getting hurt, I strongly urge the state to put up a simple "no turn on red" sign, not just for the residents of Chapel Haven, but for everyone. I believe this is the safest, easiest, and most cost effective solution.
