  • 833 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    Cross walk pedestrian signal crossing Whalley is too short. Very dangerous for children and elderly. I have crossed with both elderly individuals and small children and it is a harrowing experience. There is a nursery school on one side of the Avenue here, and many families have to deal with it.
  • 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.

  • Central Ave New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    Traffic speeds on Central Ave in westville are insanely fast with numerous parked cars being hit and totaled. In my own family 3 parked cars have been totaled on Central near Edgewood Ave and a friend farther down Central just past Barton has had their car hit multiple times and a vehicle used for work totaled, destroying their business. As an inexpensive and quick solution, I would like to propose that white lines be painted to designate a shoulder on the side of the street with no parking and a white line be painted 18"-24" from the parked car doors (much the way the snow created a narrower lane last winter with plenty of room to safely open car doors) this would create a narrower feeling driving lane (I think the minimum suggested is 8' wide so there is plenty of room). This would give the street a feeling of being narrower and slow traffic a bit. I just watched a car honk, swerve around a car trying to park and screech away at high speed. It is dangerous for people, and for the many many cars that have to park on the street because many houses don't have driveways or have multiple renters without off street parking.
  • Willard St New Haven, CT - Westville
    I go running early every morning and consistently see cars parked on the sidewalk at this one apartment complex. It clearly shows stripeage for no parking but these people don't seem to care. I have seen it during the day as well. What can be done about this? Not only is it greatly inconvenient for pedestrians, strollers and the like, but its also illegal!
  • 52 Mc Kinley Ave New Haven, CT 06515 - Westville
    This house has an inground pool but they took out the fence to the right of the house a few years ago and did not replace it. This is a danger for neighborhood children and pets
  • West Rock Ave And Yale Ave New Haven, CT - Westville
    Too many people are speeding down Yale Ave between Edgewood and West Rock, as well as West Rock Ave towards Whalley. These streets run alongside a public park, where there are many adults and children, riding bikes in the bike lane, skate boarding, jogging and walking their dogs. The tragic accident that occured this past week should be sign enough that speed bumps are a needed and a low cost way of preventing more traffic incidents.
  • 1800-1846 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville

    I was headed westbound of Chapel St last Monday when a silver Toyota 4 dr sedan passed me on the left. CT plate 918 TRE.

    I'm going to keep posting these as long as it keeps happening to people can see how crazy it is.

  • Potholes Closed
    2-30 Knollwood Drive New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    The recent paving project left a patch of road, approximately 15 feet long, unpaved, with raised manholes exposed. This road hazard has been present for about three weeks now. When will it be fixed?
  • 720 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    Is it legal to park a tractor- trailer on city street in the middle of a public park for days . There has been an 18 wheeler parked since at least last week on Edgewood Ave in park . I can't believe it has not been seen by NH police or parking enforcement .
  • Chapel Street (Between Central Ave & Yale Ave) New Haven, CT - Westville
    It's that time of year again...The Yale fields are being used for lacrosse tournaments and the luxury suv driving parents of the lacrosse players are flying down Chapel Street like it's a highway. Vehicle after vehicle turns right off of Central Ave (once they realize Central Ave is closed for these events) and then floors the gas pedal to speed up to Yale Avenue. I was just out walking my dog and was startled by the roar of a dark gray BMW X5 accelerating as if he was on a highway entrance ramp. Where are the New Haven Police with a speed trap when we need them?
  • Alden Ave At Fountain St. New Haven, CT - Westville
    The light that effects traffic and pedestrian movement for the intersection of Fountain St, Alden Ave, Harrison St. and Philip St. has been operating very slowly since the new lights were put in. It is not unusual for vehicles on Alden and Harrison to wait 3-5 minutes for the light to change even when there is not traffic on Fountain Street. I will also call the Transportation, Traffic, and Parking Dept. about this.
  • Potholes Archived
    77 Knollwood Drive New Haven, CT - Westville
    on the street, near driveway apron, pothole is deteriorating daily. This is across from the Hopkins school driveway, so lots of traffic and they swerve to avoid it, so dangerous.
