  • 183 West Rock New Haven, CT - Westville
    Our car has been parked down in the middle of our driveway since Saturday evening and when I came out this morning all the contents of the glove compartment had been removed and left on the seats. I think they only took some change that was in a compartment between the seats. They did use my Blistex. Ick. I am usually pretty good about locking it but there was no sign of forced entry. They would not take the report over the non emergency number even though I do not require an insurance report. I have to go in person to the PD to report it. I am afraid these sorts of crimes are going unreported because of that policy.
  • 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.
  • 80 98 Woodbridge Ave New Haven, CT - Westville
    It's rare when i actually see a driver come to a complete stop--nay, even slow to under 25 mph before blowing through this set of stop signs, usually going along alston towards edgewood or fountain. There are many younger children who live on woodbridge ave and the nearby streets who ride their bikes and scooters...needless to say, it's extremely dangerous for children and adult pedestrians alike. We need to have the City enforce these stop signs for the safety of all our neighbors.
  • Edgewood And Central Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    An older model tan SUV license plate 705-HEL traveling eastbound on Edgewood Ave made an illegal left turn to go North on Central Avenue this morning, nearly running over my two school children walking to Edgewood school. There were witnesses.

    I was walking with my 8 and 9 year old children to school this morning, heading east on Edgewood Ave when we stopped on the northwest corner of Edgewood and Central. A westbound driver on Edgewood started to turn right to go north on Central Ave. As she pulled into the intersection, she waived for me and my children to cross in front of her. The driver of the tan SUV, license plate 705 HEL, apparently too impatient to wait for school children in an intersection, started to turn left to cut off the driver who had motioned for us to cross in front of her.

    I stopped him from hitting us by yelling at him and telling my kids to run. The tan SUV driver told me to shut the f*** up. My daughter cried the rest of the way to school she was so scared.

  • 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.
  • C/O Valley And Blake Streets New Haven, CT - Westville
    There are many mornings, including today, where the traffic signal at Valley and Blake, coming from Valley onto Blake, has inconsistent cycling. The signal for traffic on Blake will cycle through from green to red, however when it turns red, it will cycle again for Blake, with the signal for Valley Street staying red. It backs up traffic well past Emerson Street. It also causes some of the more cavalier operators to run the red light, cut into traffic, etc. This does not happen every day which is also odd.
  • 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?
  • 243 Alden Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    Would it be possible to get a big belly solar collector at the Westville quality market. This has started to pop up downtown and it would be excellent in places like this where trash overflows and there's no recycling.
  • 1246-1284 Forest Rd New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    The new timing on the traffic light on Forest Road onto Fountain Street is too short, backing morning traffic up two blocks to West Elm. Something has definitely changed as this intersection, though busy, only recently began backing up this badly.
  • Potholes Archived
    102-110 Fountain Street New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    Two very deep holes have shown up next to one another at the intersection of Fountain / Alden / Harrison, in the eastbound lane of Fountain right before the traffic light. There is additional buckling to its right. Very deep and practically impossible to avoid!
