438 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect HillThis Saturday I removed SEVEN advertising signs (all for a supposedly cheap TV, phone, and Internet service provider) from utility poles at 400 Whitney Avenue, 438 Whitney, 443 Whitney, 450 Whitney (Bethesda Lutheran Church), 611 Whitney, and two other locations on Whitney. The signs were all posted in violation of New Haven regulations. It would be helpful if Public Works or the Police Department would call the phone number on these signs, 860-869-0284, and tell the company that signs are not allowed to be posted on utility poles. Perhaps the advertiser will get the message. The signs are visual clutter.
140 Bradley Street New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU
Every night around 530-630PM lately, there are almost no spots available on the State Street side of Bradley. I'm not sure if this is due to the crowd at Dashi, people visiting the bike shop or the combination of the two but something seriously needs to be done.
Why are violators never ticketed? I don't even remember the last time I've seen cars with tickets on them. Residents on Bradley would all appreciate some CONSISTENT enforcement. Please.
56 Hillhouse Ave New Haven 06511, United States - Prospect HillWhere are the in-street pedestrian crossing signs?
I watched a pedestrian stuck trying to cross Sachem at Hillhouse. No cars would stop for her - I actually had to stop traffic with my bicycle!
As I was cycling home through East Rock I wondered...where are all the in-street pedestrian crossing signs?
I don't see them anywhere.
As someone who remembers a time when they weren't allowed in New Haven, having the in-street pedestrian signs regularly, proactively installed is a small but important victory for all of us in the traffic safety community.
2-14 Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_GreenOn Church St in the direction of the Green and right in front of the KofC Building, cars constantly pull over into the bike lane and stand, I guess in order to pick somebody up. This is a very busy road with lots of bike commuter traffic as well. When I swerve into traffic because of the car parked in the bike lane, several lanes of traffic are potentially impacted and I feel very vulnerable. I take this bike lane every day ~6, and I guess there is a car in the lane 50% of the time. This would be a great place to plan on ticketing violators!
49 Edwards New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
The street sweeping enforcers of New Haven say that they post their signs 48 hours in advance to warn residents about upcoming street sweeping/towing. They also say there is an alert that goes out. I know this because I moved here last month and learned by having my car towed.
This time, the no parking ban signs were posted LESS THAN 24 HOURS in advance.
I took a photo of my street in East Rock on Monday at 6:45 am (attached - note times the photos were taken), knowing that the opposite side would be cleaned Tuesday at the same time and signs should have been posted Sunday. When I went out that morning to confirm this, there were NO SIGNS POTED ANYWHERE.
If the city is going to tow and tag, then they need to uphold their timeline of posting the signs 48 hours in advance.
I also saw cars being towed from the street BEFORE the ban was in effect, at 6:45 am (no parking is for 7am-3pm).
New Haven street sweeping folks, what gives? Be consistent or stop ticketing and towing.
Fountain Street New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
I live on Fountain Street, a state road and commuter route for individuals coming to New Haven area. There are no public trash receptacles on the street, despite being a major bus route with heavy pedestrian traffic.
Is there any enforcement of littering laws in New Haven?
Are there plans to provide city maintained trash receptacles near bus stops?
This was waiting for me tonight when I got home, where the road meets my driveway. Not the most vile thing I've ever seen, but seriously, who throws a bag filled with half eaten Chinese takeout out of their car in a residential area? Or anywhere?
I find this highly annoying --both pedestrian and automobile litter. I feel like a character in Women in the Dunes.
Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - DixwellA number of residents have noticed that there is an increase in street drug sales on Woodland Street. Cars pull up and wait, and different people, usually on foot or bicycle, go up to them and complete the sale. We don't call the police, because there's not much they can do after the fact, but over the long term we hope they can do something.
29 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster SquareThis is the 3rd time I have logged on over the past 2 months and NOTHING has been done to solve this problem. The sidewalk on Union street between Water and Fair Street is completely overgrown with bushes over 7ft tall and trash throughout. School starts next week and students will be forced to walk in the street as they can't pass there. The sidewalk and concrete barriers are collecting garbage and human waste from people who are starting to live there. Please come and attend to this immediately. School is starting!
2-90 Sheffield Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
I am in wheel chair and I catch public transportation. Today, when I was trying to get on the bus, there was too much snow on the curb and the handicap access ramps on the curbs for the bus to be able to lower the handicap accessible ramp, for to be able to mount with my wheel chair. When the driver tried to lower the ramp, because of the snow, there was a gap of about an inch or so. This is very unsafe for me, as well as other citizens. Please address this immediately. My concern today was at the bus stop I was at; however, this is happening all over the city. There has to be a better and safer system, to protect all the city's citizens, in times of inclement weather.
Also, when it rains the water pulls at the end of the parking lot and drains into the bus stop. When the temperature is at freezing levels, this area turns into an ice rink. If I go over the curb to reach the bus, I can lose control of my wheel chair and slide directly into oncoming traffic.
87-105 Sachem Street New Haven, Connecticut - DixwellPlease bring back the STOP sign at corner of Winchester and Sachem. There is bicycle traffic entering and exiting the Farmington Canal Trail here, and the pedestrian crosswalk does not provide enough protection. Cars traveling from Winchester used to have to come to a full stop, now they barely slow down if there is no pedestrian in crosswalk. This creates unsafe conditions for bike cross-traffic.
Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Beaver HillsDriving southeast on Whalley, the lanes shift at the light just before West Rock Ave. There are no markings on the pavement for guidance, so cars in the middle lane often shift to the left lane. I've been forced into oncoming traffic multiple times. Painting the lanes in the intersection would be extremely helpful.
