  • East Brown Street And 1st Ave Intersection West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven

    This intersection recently received a new stop sign on the 1st Ave side. But the issue is not the stop sign, its on East Brown St. where everyone parks on the street.

    Theres a few big SUVs and cars that park on both sides of the street and this leaves absolutely no room for cars to pass each other like a normal 2-way street.

    People do not even have room to pull over to let the other person go.
    These people (residents) also park right on the corner so it makes it difficult to wait for the intersection to be clear, while providing room for someone to turn onto East Brown Street.

    It has been like this for years but now the problem has gotten bigger now that theres different residents and more cars in that particular area.

  • Campbell Ave West Haven, CT - West Haven

    On Campbell ave, more specifically from the corners of Park St. to Atwater St., cars are always parking on the corners and it makes crossing Campbell Ave a real challenge. You need to move up so far into crossing traffic just to see and people drive too fast on Campbell to be able to judge anything.

    A lot of these corners have parking spots painted on the street but they are just too close to the corners. Some people ignore these spots and park right on the corner, and that makes it impossible to see.

    I cant tell you how many times Ive had to depend on the car opposing me to know when it is safe to cross Campbell Ave. Its pretty dangerous if you ask me.

  • Washington Ave West Haven, CT - West Haven

    I see the Police driving down Washington ave doing at least 70 Mph sometimes. No sirens no lights nothing. This neighborhood (Brown st. down to the beach on Washington) is full of kids that play outside. Also I see a ton of accidents at one particular corner on Washington Ave and cars arent even going that fast. Are they going to do it until they kill someone?

    I know they have the right to speed to get somewhere in emergencies but with no lights, no sirens?! stopping at a stop sign!?

  • Thomas St West Haven, CT - West Haven
    Thomas street is a one way street. Everyday for the past 4 years or so there are people that will drive the wrong way up the street for what ever reason they have. Maybe its because its more convenient for them i do not know. its really annoying especially when cars go to turn down the street the right way and get blocked because the person going the wrong way will not stop and pushes the other car out.
  • Beach Walk West Haven, CT - West Haven
    I ride my bike on the boardwalk, from chicks to bradley point. usually about 4 times a week. I cant stand it people DO NOT listen to the markings on the sidewalk and walk all over the place. when i ride by them on my bike some pople are like watch where your riding that thing. The problem is I am on the proper side of the boardwalk. This really only happens from St. johns church to bradley point. its really annoying to have to slow down to a dragging pace and wait for people to move and then they get mad like im doing something wrong....Why dont they pay attention?
