  • 28 Batter Terrace New Haven, CT - West River
    Two pairs of sneakers have just been hung on a utility line here. Is there an active drug dealer here posting this as a sign? Or is this a kid's prank? Either way, for the safety and peace of mind of residents, it's important to get the sneakers down. Can Public Works or LCI help with this? Or the PD?

    I was just told by two officers on the corner of Park and Chapel (Wednesday April 2, 5:30pm) that pedestrians do not have the right-of-way in a crosswalk crossing on a green light (there is no walk signal, just a green). They said this was particular to CT state law, but I just looked up the law and it seems to indicate otherwise. Pedestrians DO have the right of way in a designated cross-walk and on a green. I wish that the police were trained to give a more detailed and specific explanation of the law, and not perpetuated inaccuracies that favor drivers and lead to drivers in turn misunderstanding the law (I've had drivers also yelling at me for crossing on a green).

    (b) At any intersection where special pedestrian-control signals bearing the words “Walk” or “Don’t Walk” are placed, pedestrians may cross the highway only as indicated by the signal. At any intersection where traffic is controlled by other traffic control signals or by police officers, pedestrians shall not cross the highway against a red or “Stop” signal and shall not cross at any place not a marked or unmarked crosswalk. A pedestrian started or starting across the highway on a “Walk” signal or on any such crosswalk on a green or “Go” signal shall have the right-of-way over all vehicles, including those making turns, until such pedestrian has reached the opposite curb or safety zone.

  • Crown & Park St. New Haven, Connecticut - Dwight
    The two houses on either side of Crown (at Park St.) have been generating a ridiculous amount of noise these past few weekends. As someone who's lived in Madison Tower for 3 years now, I expect (and am totally fine) with some noise, but the kids that moved into these two houses have been unacceptably loud and often on weeknights. New Haven police, please give them a wake up call. Thank you!

  • Potholes Archived
    130 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Dwight
    Hit a pothole that was three feet in diameter and several inches deep and it blew out my front and rear passenger tires. Best part is a police office was parked a car length away, mentioned the pothole and what happened, he didn't even offer any help. Not to mention, Edgewood Avenue is not the safest place for anyone to be stuck with two blown tires waiting on a tow truck. Street is so dark as it is. I'll be taking this further with the city.
