    Bikers are riding in bike lanes in the wrong direction. This creates dangerous situation with oncoming traffic, but especially with drivers making a right turn onto Orange from side street. If bikers are travelling in wrong direction there is ZERO visibility of biker behind parked cars, This is a serious accident waiting to happen.

  • Edwards And Orange St New Haven, CT - Bishop-Hine

    My co-worker has a child at Barnard--the school system told her he could be picked up here. However, since school starts, I can count on one hand the number of times he has been picked up.

    I think he has been picked up/dropped off ONCE within 10 minutes of the scheduled time. The time variance is 30-45 minutes.

    One time the school bus driver just kept going, with him sitting in the bus, and his mother desperately waving her down. Almost one hour later, the school figured out where her child was and had her drive over to pick him up.

    Is this really not something that NHPS can handle?

    JP Dempsey and Goosdellows outdoor tables take up too much of the sidewalk. Pedestrians are forced to use the "brick" section of the sidewalk which is cluttered with utility poles, newspaper machines and fire hydrants. It is nearly impossible for anyone in a wheelchair or stroller to get by.

    This morning All-American Waste woke up the entire neighborhood at 4 a.m., picking up trash from several apartment buildings in the Orange and Bishop area. They remained in the area for nearly a half hour in violation of New Haven's 7 am garbage-hauling limit. They have been doing the same for weeks. The driver indicated the neighborhood had "just been added to the route. " This company is a consistent repeat offender in this and other neighborhoods. Why aren't they cited by NHPD or Public Works? Why do they think they can schedule hauling against the law?

    It's always mildly annoyed me: the way the cars block line of sight into the parking lot at Nicca's/onto Bishop street here (Esp. the loading trucks for Nicca's. They have loading spots in their parking lot.)

    However, when a local officer almost took me out with her car door here yesterday, I decided I was officially fed up. Come on people. Always look before you open your door, and if you are going to park in a bike lane, look twice. If you're going to park in front of a busy parking lot--well, don't. and if you need to make a delivery to a place which has a parking lot, try using the parking lot, instead of parking your big truck directly in front of the parking lot so those of us coming by on bikes can get hit.

  • Snow Removal Archived
    58 Edwards Street New Haven, CT - Bishop-Hine
    There is still snow on the odd side of the street on Edwards and on Nichols streets. I thought these streets were to be plowed on Friday. When can we expect the snow to be removed?

    So as to not interrupt recreational activitis such as sidewalk cross country skiing, would the one or two property owners who have removed snow from their sidewalks please return the snow to its original location?

    The intersection of State and Humphrey Street in New Haven is very pedestrian unfriendly. There are several very active businesses and restaurants in the vicinity, additionally the probate and probation building have great pedestrian activity. I cross this intersection back and forth at least three times a day on foot and have seen and experienced many close calls. Typically after pressing the pedestrian pole button it take 2-3 cycles or cars in both directions before the pedestrian crossing is indicated, even if there is little or no vehicle traffic. If there are two or three fellow pedestrians at adjacent corners pressing the buttons sometimes it will trigger a little faster. One side of the intersection is quite a bit wider than the other and the pedestrian timer gives barely enough time to get across without breaking into a trot. Most of the time drivers make right turns on reds while the walking man signal is up anyway and ignore the pedestrian crossing lights all together. I have learned to simply cross when there are no cars coming and it's safe, not by the pole indicators. Perhaps additional signage to alert drivers that they need to yield to pedestrians when the crossing lights are active would be helpful. It's really only a matter of time before someone is hurt at this intersection.

    Once again, the supply trucks for Nicas are blocking the sightlines for anyone trying to get out of Bishop Street. I was almost hit this morning trying to pull out of Bishop because I could not see oncoming traffic.

    When will the folks at Nicas actually DO something about their trucks? Does someone need to be maimed or killed before real action is taken????

    I have seen many accidents and near accidents on Edwards Street. Cars driving between Orange and State on Edwards really speed, and there are a lot of hidden driveways. Hence, as cars pull in and out of the driveways, speeding cars can't slow down fast enough and hit them.

    There isn't much that can be done about the hidden driveways, but what about the speeding? Maybe one of those "this is your speed" signs would at least encourage people to slow down?
