English Dr New Haven, CT - East Rock
For some reason I don't quite understand, drivers on English drive routinely drive at speeds that are unsafe for this narrow, winding road. While I'd like to believe that people are smart enough to gauge for themselves safe travel speeds based on the conditions at hand, recent events seem to indicate that some drivers will drive what they believe to be the speed limit regardless of road conditions, even to the point of losing control of their vehicles.
If drivers continue to demonstrate an inability to judge for themselves safe speeds on this road, I suggest that the engineers determine safe speeds for them and communicate this information using highway warning signs from the Manual of Universal Traffic Control Devices.
I recommend a W1-5 (Winding Road Warning Sign) shown here:
Combined with a W13-1 (Advisory Speed Plaque) shown here:
According to the driver who lost control of her vehicle at this location, she lost control while traveling at "25 m.p.h." under dry road conditions. To me, this indicates that the W13-1 Advisory Speed Plaque should display a recommended speed substantially lower than "25 m.p.h." I recommend 15 m.p.h.

Please re-categorize this report as necessary.
Everit Street New Haven, Connecticut - East RockThere are many trees on the long block of Everit Street that are very sickly -- covered with brown, shriveled leaves. They are all the same type of tree.
Can someone investigate so the trees don't die?
161 Foster St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East RockThe red light here has recently (past couple weeks maybe?) been on the wrong cycle -- as if there was a pedestrian walk signal on this light, which there's not. Both sides of light have been going red and waiting for ~10 secs extra.

One of many bike thefts in the area this summer!
185 Cold Spring St. New Haven, CT - East RockWe wonder when at least one side of Cold Spring St. will be plowed to the curb? The church has no parking lot, only street parking. The building is not only used on Sunday morning, but every night of the week by many 12 step and community groups who now have no access.

3 North Bank Street New haven, CT - East RockTraffic is at a standstill during moring and evening rush. It took 10 minutes to drive 10 ft to make the turn onto North Bank. How much longer will this be an issue? It's a mess with schoolbuses and cars making K turns on Mitchell.

Willow Street New Haven, Connecticut - East RockWillow Street between the end of Mitchell Drive and the entrance to 91 has been unpaved and unmarked for weeks.
