  • 185 Ann Uccello Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    Rotted light post at the intersection of Asylum and Church.
  • Street signs Acknowledged
    400-438 Main Street Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown
    See photo. The signage on the right is missing the "Pay to Park" sign (as shown on the left). Every day I see people park in the three spots next to the pole lacking the "Pay to Park" sign and then come back to a ticket, because while it is clear that there is a 2-hr limit, it's not clear that you have to pay.
  • 1 Atheneum Square Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    Crosswalk Signal is not working. Pushing button does not trigger pedestrian cycle, no matter how long you wait.
  • 185 Asylum Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    Every single day I see people paying for street parking after 6pm and hear people complaining about having to pay for parking in Hartford. I try to inform them its free after 6pm but the signs only state 2 hour parking 8pm-6pm so it 50-50 if they believe me. Also on the parking authority's websites it is doesn't clearly state that it is free. This is the only place i found that states it's free www.hartford.com/parking. Putting up signs or having the the Meters shut down at 6pm would solve this problem and encourage more people to come to the city. Also its just wrong to 'trick' people into paying for free parking.
  • 2-98 Imlay Street Hartford, Connecticut - Asylum Hill

    Two recently installed handicap parking signs on the east side of Imlay Street (near Farmington Ave) are directly facing the street, rather than facing the direction of traffic like signs usually are (which would make the signs perpendicular to the street).

    Because the signs are facing outward to the street, it is unclear which street parking spots are considered to be in the handicap zone. The signs could be interpreted to mean either (a) 2 parking spots, (b) a wide "zone" of handicap parking that includes 3 spots, or (c) an even wider "zone" of handicap parking that includes 4 spots (see photos and diagram attached).

    Please either (a) rotate the signs to be perpendicular to the street to clearly mark which two spots are handicap spots, or (b) clarify that the two signs are intended to mark a wide "zone" of handicap parking that is intended for more than two cars.

    People are avoiding parking anywhere near the signs because it is ambiguous which zones are handicap spots. Thank you.

  • 40 Capitol Hartford, CT - Downtown
    Robberies are frequent on Capitol Ave. Another family was robbed last night at Peppercorns. They said they will not likely return to Hartford and wish Peppercorns was located elsewhere. There are 4 different spots of broken glass. Looks like a war zone. I will try to load all 4 pictures.
  • Traffic Lights Acknowledged
    6045 Jewell Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    I understand that there's construction going on here, so it won't be perfect. However, something needs to be done about the cars on Jewell going through the intersection on red lights. It's not a right on red, it's a straight on red and I'm pretty sure the whole point of red lights is not to do that. The intersection is difficult enough without cars going through the light trying to run you over when you're exiting the park. Maybe a sign that instructs people to stop? A no turn on red sign? I don't totally know the solution, but I'm also not the traffic engineer who ok'd this death trap.
