    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. See description at http://nacto.org/cities-for-cycling/design-guide/bike-lanes/buffered-bike-lanes/.
  • 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!!

    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.
  • 201 Derby Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    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.

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????

    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.

    What happened to the plaque that used to be on the pedestal underneath this statue? Why was it not replaced for memorial day?
