1-99 Burns St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - East Rock
In order to avoid traffic light on Whitney and East Rock road, drivers are using Burns/Everit to cut to East Rock road. Avoiding Whitney Av / East Rock road traffic light seems to be mostly among drivers that already tend to drive aggressively and significantly over the speed limit. That makes crossing on Burns street dangerous, especially from drivers turning left from Whitney, probably paying more attention to incoming traffic rather than pedestrian crossing. Installing speed bump on Burns St. to slow down speeding drivers would improve pedestrian safety, and potentially discourage some drivers from avoiding traffic light in the first place. Alternatively, the city could also consider turning Burns St. into one way street from Everit/East Rock, to Whitney Ave.
