    The main benefit of the bike lanes here would be to reduce vehicle speeding. It would also make cycling between Westville and Downtown New Haven more comfortable - many residents currently report feeling too unsafe to ride next to the traffic here, which frequently exceeds speeds of 45 miles per hour.

  • 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!!

    This is a popular meeting spot for gangs of ATV / Motorcross Hoodlums. They are very well organized, meet here and then take off, terrorizing our streets. Last evening, around 7:30PM there were about 15 of them that took off into traffic on Ella T. Grasso Blvd. WOULD THE POLICE AND THE CITY PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE OVERTAKING OUR CITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????

    There is supposed to be PUBLIC ACCESS along the West River between Derby Avenue and Chapel Street. Yale and/or the CT Tennis Foundation has locked the gates on Chapel Street and Derby Avenue and illegally restricted access.

    The Edgewood Avenue underpass in Edgewood Park is very poorly or not at all lit -- I got jumped there tonight at dusk. There is very poor visibility under the bridge, making it very easy for someone to hide under the bridge and jump/assault pedestrians and bicyclists.

    What happened to the plaque that used to be on the pedestal underneath this statue? Why was it not replaced for memorial day?
  • 718 Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT - Westville

    Looking for witnesses who saw an incident that happened today (3/9/10) at the intersection of Yale Avenue and Edgewood Avenue (corner of Edgewood park, Parks Recreation office, Edgewood elementary school)

    Today (3/9/10) at about 1pm my friend and I were legally crossing the road after all lights were red and the crosswalks where lit. We had a double stroller and a single stroller holding 3 infants. During the redlight and us crossing a woman was driving up Yale Avenue towards Fountain at a very high rate of speed, missed me by a foot or two and ran a red light. Had I not been speedy in my crossing, me and the baby would have been plowed down.

    I only caught a short glimpse of the woman and her car because she drove so fast. Her car was an economy sized car, charcoal grey, and I think she was blonde. There was a few cars at the light. If you remember this, please contact me at pcosinct at yahoo dot com. I'd like to file a formal complaint against this woman but don't have the necessary information. I am looking into seeing if there are cameras on that intersection as well. Hopefully it was caught on tape.

    The main benefit of the bike lanes here would be to reduce vehicle speeding. It would also make cycling between Downtown New Haven and Westville more comfortable - many residents currently report feeling too unsafe to ride next to the traffic here, which frequently exceeds speeds of 45 miles per hour. There are currently sharrows, which while they serve a very valuable purpose for wayfinding and to make road users more aware of cyclists, are not an acceptable long-term solution for a street of this type. The goal needs to be a street that is comfortable for everyone to ride on, whether they are 8 years old or 80 years old.
