  • Cold Spring & Livingston New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    This intersection has been problematic for a long time, and it seems to be getting worse. There have been multiple recent accidents at this location in recent months. Our own car has been hit 3 times in the last 6 months while parked on Cold Spring just past this intersection (all have been hit and runs, with the most recent one causing $5,000 in damage). Luckily it has only been cars damaged so far. However, with 2 elementary schools, 1 preschool and 1 high school all within 1-2 blocks of this intersection, there is a high likelihood of local schoolkids being injured if nothing is done to slow down traffic along this route.

  • 131 Canner St New Haven, CT - East Rock

    last Friday, both my cars were towed from in front of my house. On Friday morning I heard heavy machinery nearby, which prompted me to head outside to check for street sweeping signs. The one notice I saw was at the end of my block, over 200 feet away. Since there were roughly the same number of cars parked on both sides of the street, I figured it must have been an old sign, perhaps for bulk pickup, that the city forgot to take down. A couple hours later, my cars were gone, and I owe nearly $300 to the town and the tow companies.

    My situation highlights a perverse incentive for the city: make street sweeping signs as ambiguous as possible in order to ticket and tow as many vehicles as possible. If this was simply a situation of me failing to see a clearly posted sign, then it would be my fault. But when the nearest sign was at the end of the block, then I must conclude that the city is deliberately doing a sloppy job with the sign posting in order to make money even off of people who would otherwise move their cars.

  • There apparently used to be a crosswalk at Nicoll and Mitchell, but it has faded almost completely out of existence. How are people from East Rock supposed to access the playing fields or the school? By jaywalking? The crosswalks should be restored and pedestrian signage deployed in the street, like most other towns in the Northeast have. That would begin to bring the speeds down on this street, which is posted at 25mph but in reality has traffic speeds of 35-40 -- especially dangerous considering the limited visibility around some of the corners.
  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    English Drive New Haven, CT - East Rock
    English Drive (East Rock Park thru road) from Orange St Bridge heading toward Rice Field (in the direction of State St) is desperately in need of traffic calming measures. Cars drive fast. Wilbur Cross HS students ride their bikes on the road to get to/from practice. It is very dangerous. Parking around Rice Field during games makes the road very crowded. The port-o-potty is across the street from the field, so students and spectators must cross English Dr. to use it. The whole area needs City officials to take a look and find ways to increase safety etc. Has anyone ever thought about building a bridge from Wilbur Cross HS across the Mill River to the field?
  • Whitney Ave. New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Luxury tour buses blocking a lane of traffic in front of the Yale School of Management during rush hour. This is a somewhat regular occurrence.
  • 151 Cold Spring St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock
    i watch cars roll through this stop sign daily (including cops. and school buses.) sometimes it's scary just to cross the street here! some sort of traffic calming should be implemented on cold spring so that cars speeding from 91 to Whitney SLOW DOWN. this would be an excellent place for some of the orange "yield to pedestrians" signs to be installed in the middle of the intersections.
  • 1-41 Cold Spring Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    CARS RUN THE RED LIGHT HERE ALL THE TIME! There are always tons of pedestrians here as people enter College Woods and the playground area: families with kids, runners and walkers, etc. I've never seen a traffic cop doing enforcement here. I've seen both cars and motorcyclists blow right through the red light on many occasions, some without even slowing down. Dear NHPD - please do a traffic sting here.
  • 355 Willow St New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    traffic SPEEDS up and down Willow St, especially at evening commuting hours. could you put up a "this is your speed" sign? could you station a policeman?
  • 140 Cottage Street New Haven, CT - East Rock
    I understand that this is a once in a century storm and the NHDPW is "working around the clock to clean the city streets but why have they plowed the tiny block of Cottage between Linvingston and Orange but neglected the block between Whitney and Livingston. The methodology and strategy of the plowing in East Rock boggles me. Why plow one tiny block of a street yet not plow it completely. What are you going to do tomorrow after the rain freezes this all into a solid mass?
  • East Rock Park Road New Haven Connecticut - East Rock
    On East Rock Park Road, between Livingston and Whitney at the bend in the road, basically in the wooded area with no houses, there is a disgusting dump of household trash. Luckily, the dumpers were stupid enough to leave a box with their address on it. I have a photo of the box/address too but can only upload one photo. Happy to send the other photos if requested. Here is the info: Phyllis Daniels, 48 Carmel Street, New Haven, CT 06511.
  • Orange And Linden Street New Haven, CT - East Rock

    This city of New Haven employee, on a Sunday afternoon at 4, drove the wrong way down Linden Street, a one-way street. He drove to Foster, and from there went to Willow, then Orange, before executing a u-turn to park directly in front of Romeo & Cesare's in the "No parking" area pictured in the photo.

    Between the parks department guys and the Board of Ed truck (not to mention police) I see this type of driving from city employees on a daily basis in my neighborhood.

    Is there any way to get these guys to drive safely and legally?
