  • Campbell Ave And Ruden St. West Haven, CT - West Haven
    Drivers taking the right on red from Ruden St. to Campbell Ave ignore the Walk signal (or don't even bother to stop). More than once I have almost been hit as someone comes speeding around the corner while I am crossing in the crosswalk while the Walk signal is on.
  • 322 Peck Ave West Haven, CT - West Haven
    Every year I find myself calling the police dept. to assist in enforcing the parking ban in West Haven for my neighbors who seem to not know about it. What happens since they park in front of my home since they have 6+ cars is my driveway needs to be shoveled out 6 feet from my sidewalk. The town needs to tow cars not in complance who choose to ignore rules for the town they populate. I have to call the police every storm.....
  • 785 Washington Ave West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    Extra sign needed in middle of block "No Parking this Side" Road is 2 way and there is not enough room. I complained to mayors office for 2 years!
  • Savin Rock Trail West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven

  • Brown Street West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    I am sad to report that as many times as I have watched my son nearly get run down for crossing in a cross walk to get to his bus stop and asked for police to assist in enforcing the Stte law...and asking the city to place cones with signs as other communities do to protect their citizens....people do NOT respect cross walks in West Haven. I'd rather not have to take photos of the plates to post here but will since my tolerance is dropping each time I walk and watch my son try to safely get to his destination. This is not random 'cross as I feel awith no regard for cars' crossing and I am abotu to call Channel 8 to disclose how often the cross walk law is ignored and not enforced byand our town. We nearly were hit the other day as a woman did not even slow down for a red light and turned right without slowing WHEN we had the pedestrian walk light on! And she had the nerve to swear at me an my son for crossing. Beach Ave also has drivers who turn their heads when they see you tryin got cross in a crosswalk and simply drive through and nearly hit you. I have seen no police presence, but am happy to see a few walking the beat! We need much more of that and more ticketing.
  • 626 Savin Avenue West Haven, CT - West Haven
    The home located next to the dentist office of Dr. Mark Ryan is old, filthy and falling apart. It seems that nothing has been done to maintain the house or property. There is tons of trash in the backyard along with a fire pit that is located close to a neighbors wood fence with bookcases etc in it. My understanding is that the section 8 occupants are well known by the West Haven Police department as well as the West Haven Fire department. Daily there are several people who are constantly in and out of the house. On occasion when driving by I have noticed people walking along the side of the house and going through other doors besides the front door. There seems to be several people living in the house as well - not sure how many. Neighbors in the area have talked about the fact there is some sort of illegal drug activity going on during the day. These issues not only cause neighboring home values to drop but also it isn't safe for small children who are living in the area, playing/riding bikes, patients visiting the Dr. Mark Ryan's dentist office and for neighbors who would like to use their yards during the summer peacefully.

  • Trash Cans Archived
    196 Beach Street West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    For the July 3 "invasion" (the WHPD's words), plenty of extra trash cans were placed along the shoreline from Grove Park all the way to Savin Rock. the beaches along Beach St, including across from Chick's, were ignored. Here's the result. The trash cans this entire weekend have been overflowing, with massive numbers of visitors who throng here. This eastern end of town is typically ignored in any case, by Public Works as well as the Police Dept. We need more trash barrels, and we need recycling bins here.
