  • Corner Of Sherman And George Streets New Haven, Connecticut - West River

    You have to be on the corner of George and Sherman where the Pinsky Law office is

    Or the light will not change. Nobody knows to do that. So this is extremely dangerous as there are children that use this intersection.

  • Signs Acknowledged
    Sheldon Terrace New Haven, Connecticut - Prospect Hill

    I have paid my ticket, however I would like to inform you that the signs you put on Sheldon terrace are not helpful. The one that they had in the picture was not seen because it was between 2 garbage cans—especially driving in, unseen because it is far too small. And the only other sign was at the very end of the street. Bigger signs that are more obvious would be helpful especially for people who do not live in New Haven, but work driving and parking all day. Very frustrated with your whole process and how rude both the officer and the towing company which just dropped my car in front of me from about 3 feet off the ground. Not a good look for the community.


  • Townsend New Haven, Connecticut - East Shore

    From: Frank Ogonowski
    Subject: Traffic Lights at Townsend and Main Street
    Date: May 5, 2018 at 11:11:13 AM EDT


    I am writing this e mail seeking resolution of a potentially dangerous issue that has been going on for “Two Years”.

    Namely the traffic light sequence at Townsend Avenue/ Main Street and Forbes Ave.

    There are several issues that can be resolved with simple adjustments:

    1- The timing for green on Main compared to Townsend is way too long (biased on Main). Most of the time the traffic backs up Townsend for several blocks, especially during the summer months, causing folks to become frustrated and trying to turn-around on Townsend or drive through the Shell station on the corner which causes a potential dangerous situation.

    2- Driving up Townsend from Forbes Avenue there is a green light sequence which is literally 3-4 seconds long, again making drivers frustrated and attempting to drive through the intersection at the end of a very short green light. ( Don’t the people who time the lights see this. ????).

    3- Also, this same light initiates a 17 second all points red even though there is no one at the cross-walk
    which add further frustration to the drivers especially if the next green sequence as noted in 2 is for 3-4 seconds.

    4- When coming down Townsend to turn left on Main the light is green both ways “then” adds a green left hand arrow which causing disruption in the traffic flow. It should sequence left arrow green “before” it goes all green both ways. The left arrow sequence from Forbes to Townsend is correct.

    5- When going north on Townsend the light at Forbes is red but the light at Main is green. The traffic moves up but gets stuck at the intersection (very dangerous) because the traffic is backed up at the red light at Forbes. The light at Forbes should turn green for a period of time before the light at Townsend turns green to allow cars to flow through and not block the intersection.

    I have been discussing this issue with Al Paolillo ( State Representative) for over two years. He has advised that he has contacted the head of Traffic multiple times with no corrections. Why ??

    Can someone with authority and knowledge to fix this issue please engage and execute a resolution in a timely manner.

    Thank you.

  • 67 Mechanic And 142 Granite Ave New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    4 years ago the city was supposed to cut down a tree on Mechanic Street in front of a residents house. It was cut but not correctly. That tree is now an ugly OVERGROWN Bush.

    ALSO, between Mechanic and Granite Ave, there are trees that were cut and pieces were thrown in front of these properties which is absolutely obsurd.

  • Daggett Street Congress Ave New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03

    Good morning!

    I’m reaching out once again to ask to send someone over to Zone 14 to ticket folks who are here beyond their 2-hour limit. It’s sad that I cannot find a parking space when I need one.

    This is absolutely absurd!

    Hi .

    My name is kilo content I live in selling 14 hour avenue I've reached out to Mike Pinto so numerous of times I also spoke to Velisha Cloud numerous of times I could potentially have people that are working at YALE University in Yale on New Haven Hospital parking on how it happened had never have anywhere to park -- if you are never being picketed so the constantly park on holiday avenue two words 80 hours a day at this hour.

    Again I'm a resident of New Haven rather our avenue all if you could please send someone over there could stay could someone today I'd greatly appreciate it I'm sick and every time I call I am put on hold on I can never find a parking space called if you could address this I would greatly greatly appreciate it thank you you have a great day.

  • Autumn To Corner Of Canner Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock


    I am a homeowner on Autumn Street. It is a daily problem to inch out and make the turn onto Canner Street (which is a heavily trafficked street), without hitting an oncoming car.

    Because cars park along Canner Street, it decreases visibility, but when they park beyond the "No Parking Here to Corner" signs, it makes it impossible.

    I was responsible for getting these signs placed many years ago now, but, naturally, there are folks who ignore them. I have called on numerous occasions, and, I have been told that someone would come out to ticket the offender. This seems to, usually, minimize the infractors.

    However, I called Traffic the other day, because a blue Audi wagon (CT Lic. # 6AU 5G9) was parked there for an extended period, and about two feet out from the curb, making matters worse.

    I don't know if the person was ever ticketed, but the car is there again this morning. It has been there, so far, for about two hours.

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do something before there is another huge accident there!!!!!

    And while you're there, please re-plant the "No Parking Here to Corner" sign on Autumn Street that fell during one of the storms.

    Please confirm that you have received this email, and that you have acted upon this. I am a busy person and don't have time for these incessant phone calls. Nevertheless, I am committed to pursuing this.

    Thank you.

  • Fort Hale New Haven, Connecticut - East Shore

    (Tweed Airport)

    There are constant accidents due to people flying through the stop signs as if they are not there. Maybe if there was flashing lights and/or signage that said oncoming traffic SLOW DOWN etc. it may make a difference. Again this is at Fort Hale and Burr Street (s)
