  • 97 Fountain St New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    The intersection of Fountain, Alden, Harrison & Philip in front of the post office is a free-for-all of running red lights, illegal parking and illegal standing. It is all the time during weekdays. We need some enforcement here.
  • 29 Tour Avenue New Haven Connecticut - Westville
    The preschool at 3 Tour Avenue would like access to the river walk, located next to the playground at 29 Tour Avenue. We would like an opening created in the metal fence along Tour Avenue. This way, we can easily take our preschoolers for walks along the river or over to the playground on Blake Street. We would also appreciate a dedicated crosswalk on Tour from our playground to the river walk. We thank the city in advance for making this happen!
  • Whalley Avenue New Haven, CT - Beaver Hills
    All over New Haven, not just Whalley Avenue...cars are blatantly running through red lights at a high rate of speed!! This is so dangerous as the light has been green on the other side for a few seconds! How come things can't be done regarding this. Are you going to wait until someone loses their life? Just the other day someone was preparing to cross the street when a car sped through the light. HELP!!
  • 102-110 Fountain St New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    Nearly every time I walk across this intersection a car runs the light during the walk signal. This intersection serves pedestrian traffic for the library, a synogogue, the post office, a nursery school and a church. Enforcement is needed.
  • 420-436 W Rock Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    After the Owls Nest closes the patrons continue to party in the parking lot all hours of the night(especially Thursdays)> There is yelling,laughing,arguing,horns blowing,loud music,motorcycles blasting around and around the block. This is a residential neighborhood and the noise is just awful!!
  • Fountain Street & Whalley Avenue New Haven, CT - Westville
    The crosswalk where Fountain Street merges into Whalley Avenue in Westville Village continues to be a danger zone, both for pedestrians, cars, and bicycles. Until this intersection can be completely rebuilt to slow traffic down and allow for a safe, signalized crosswalk here, there needs to be both an in-street pedestrian sign installed (as utilized throughout the city) as well as a transformation of the asphalt island at the merge into a planted median and median refuge. This will help slow traffic down by signalling to drivers that they are NOT on a highway, rather in a neighborhood with people walking and small businesses trying to survive. This is an inexpensive mitigation effort that can and should be done immediately. TT&P, please acknowledge.
  • 368-384 West Rock Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    This corner serves quite a few businesses on the West Rock side, including a very heavily attended Farmers' Market the Park Tennis courts, yet the light to enter from Whalley is about 3 cars long, and the one coming out of West Rock barely lets two cars out before it turns to red. I understand that Whalley Avenue is THE MOST IMPORTANT street of the two, but I feel like a prisoner in my own neighborhood sometimes. Please check the timing on this.
  • 820-836 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    I was just a witness to the dirtbike accident where the rider ran two red lights in a wheelie before hitting a vehicle and severely injuring his leg. Why has the State done nothing to improve traffic safety here and why does the police not enforce speed limits here? Vote here if you want traffic safety improved at the corner of Fountain and Whalley.
  • Edgewood Park New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    Trash everywhere. Dirty diapers littering the ground. Condom wrappers at the playground.

    Until people learn to be good neighbors and clean up after themselves, perhaps the city could send work crews. There most be some juvenile delinquents who have to do court ordered community service who could do this... Or college-bound high school students who need a community service project to work on.

    Also... Step up law enforcement at the parks to fine litterers.

  • 1374 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06515 - Amity
    this dunkin donuts should be shut down, it clogs traffic from 7 -10 am everymorning, who ever provided zoning for this place to have a drive through should re-examine it.
  • 95 Fountain St New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    This is a very tricky intersection, and most of it can be attributed to the traffic light. My perspective is one as a pedestrian, often crossing with small children. Nearly every time we attempt to cross Fountain St, there is at least one car (often multiple cars) running through the red light. While the drivers should get some blame (please, police this intersection!!!), the traffic signals deserve some blame. It is a 4-way intersection between Harrison, Alden and Fountain, but Alden and Harrison do not line up with each other. For cars traveling North on Fountain, there are two traffic lights and it is not clear where you are supposed to stop. The second of the traffic lights is almost completely covered by a tree - also a problem. Drivers are often confused if they make it through the first light but see the next one. It is a long drive to make it through the whole intersection.

    This is downright treacherous for pedestrians. You really don't know when it's clear to walk through because so many drivers are confused (or just outright breaking the law). I would suggest a longer yellow light, a clearer sense of where to stop, and patrolling. With multiple churches/temples, a post office, a library, chapel haven and Westville village all within a stones throw, there are many, many pedestrians coming through this intersection. Please make it safer for us!

  • 763 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Beaver Hills
    The dirt bikes were out of control in the park for the last 1/2 hour. 5 calls to police 911 and 946 and no response for 1/2 hour. Multiple riders brought bikes in the skate park while toddlers and young children had to huddle under their parents. Thanks for nothing NHPD. As I type this they are back and you are absent.
