Notified About

  • Whitney Ave And Audubon St New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green
    Construction of the Whitney and Audubon Complete Streets Project has begun this week. We are asking for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to use caution when navigating through this area throughout the construction period. Barring any delays, the project is expected to be completed by August 20th.. A graphic rendering of the project has been included to show how it will look upon completion. Thank you for your continued patience throughout the construction of this traffic calming, safety-enhanced pedestrian crossing in Downtown New Haven!
  • 1-47 Center St New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green

    There have been too many shootings here. The outside area is also too loud for this neighborhood. This one bar is destroying new haven from the center outwards.

    Should we stop eating at Bentara because it is no longer safe?

  • 746 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
    The entry and exit is constantly blocked by bus patrons. It is a safety hazard and a shelter needs to be placed away from the entrance. You can donate to a temporary bench for this bus stop here: http://bit.ly/MJrWnq

  • 777 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
    If you are the owner of this vehicle your car was just broken into. I called the Nhpd and pursued the individual but the it took too long for non emergency to pick up and I was told not to follow by the time they got on the phone. The man was last seen headed up crown towards orange carrying a duffle bag. Sorry that I could not have helped to catch him,
  • 760 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    We need more police presence on the 700 Block of Chapel Street. In the last three days a woman who works in our building was grabbed by the arm by a man at the bus stop. Also a man just urinated on the doorway to 760 Chapel Street. When I caught him, he ran across the street in to a late model Pontiac driven by an older woman.

    Is it possible to have more police patrolling the streets and bus stops in this area so everyone feels safe and issues like this decrease?

  • 756 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green
    Please add a bike rack on the sidewalk in front of Happiness Lab at The Grove, near lower Chapel at State St. There is very little bike parking in this area and it fills up pretty quickly.
  • 760-770 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
    All day long, people of all ages and backgrounds "jaywalk" across this block of Chapel Street, between State and Orange. Effective urban design should follow popular demand. The people clearly want to cross here, let's make it SAFE.
  • 151 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Yale University Campus
    Pedestrian Injury
  • Pearl Street New Haven, CT - SOHU
    There are big mountains of ice on the even side of the street that have caused damage to my car twice in trying to park, and have caused numerous slip and fall incidents to me and my guests. I know the city made an effort to plow the odd side, but didn't bother with the even and the frozen ice mountains are now causing damage to property and a dangerous situation to anyone needing to park on that side.
  • Whitney Avenue New Haven, CT - Downtown

    I watched a meter maid issue a ticket to a car that had just pulled into a space and fed the meter. When I pointed out their was still time on the meter their reply was "so there is"

    Giving tickets even when paid is why no one comes here anymore. This has got to stop. Refused to give any ID info, but I know what they look like and will start video recording of these activities. You are warned.

  • 192-224 Orange St New Haven, CT - Town_Green

    so many issues on see click fix involve the need for more enforcement of traffic laws, and more protection of pedestrians and cyclists.

    the following things have happened to me in the past week (to help paint a picture of how many happen overall):

    i was cursed out in the crosswalk in front of the police station for daring to cross legally, because i'm a "b*tch" who thinks i can "walk wherever i want"

    i flipped over my handlebars after nearly being missed by a car running a red light, and then was nearly missed by the car speeding behind me. neither of the vehicles stopped to see if i was ok.

    i was cursed at for riding in line with sharrows on state street because i should "get out of the way" and "stay on the #$% sidewalk"

    a man and i, while crossing in a crosswalk, were violently honked at, despite crossing legally, and the fact that he was using a cane. when i challenged the driver honking, a stream of curse words came, and the driver behind him screamed "WELCOME TO NEW HAVEN, WE DON'T GIVE A @#$%"

    while waiting at a red light going straight towards the train station, with my bike physically stopped ON A SHARROW, a man got out of his BMW to ask me why i wasn't all the way over to the right (even though that is a turn lane and i wasn't turning) and when i explained why, he started screaming that i'm "supposed to let all the cars pass" since i was "blocking all the traffic" (while stopped at a light legally, and after keeping up with the flow of traffic for my entire trip) (and, "let all the cars pass"? so i should wait at each intersection until not one car exists?)

    with this level of aggression, it is a wonder we walk or bike at all.

    our city needs to take more serious steps towards protecting the roads most vulnerable users.
