Hopkins Court Branford, Connecticut - Branford Center
There is a large pile of broken curbs, no doubt from the blizzard cleanup and repairs, dumped parallel to Hopkins Court. It is a terrible eyesore for all residents here.
Stannard Ave Branford, CT - Branford Center
There is excessive speeding on Short Beach Rd. People are always running the lights at the intersection of Short Beach Rd and Stannard Ave. because of the speeding my dog was killed yesterday by a speeding pizza delivery guy who also ran the red light. Our dogs leash snapped an was innocently killed, he never had a fighting chance. That man was ping do fast he never even braked or skidded, next time it could be a child or a person. Something needs to be done about this speeding before another life is claimed.

UPDATE FEB 2013 - If you check police records from Jan. 18th or 19th not sure which day exactly there was a rollover accident from a young man speeding and driving while intoxicated, he hit the telephone pole after the bend and before the traffic light, flipped then slid several feet down the road. This issue will never be foxed if police aren't here doing anything about it, or perhaps maybe more traffic lights all the way down the road.
Bridge Street Branford, CT - Branford Center
Can't the graffiti on the RR bridge be removed - It looks very unsightly and makes it look like Branford has gang problem. If public works won't do it, will it at least provide volunteers with the supplies necessary to do it?
211 Main Street Branford Center, CT - Branford Center
Making use of the crosswalk to get across Main Street near the corner of Cherry Hill Rd is very dangerous. We need one of those "stop for pedestrians" signs in the center of the road like you see on Main closer to the green.
(Some speed limit enforcement would be nice too)
Despite white painted crosswalk lines, cars do not stop even if you are already crossing. The road is very wide there as well so it is not uncommon to start walking when there is no car approaching and then have a car come along suddenly at a high rate of speed while you are in the middle.

When leaving the train station, there is no crosswalk or light to cross the street. This forces anyone walking to the train station to run through traffic.
19 S Main St Branford, CT 06405, USA - Branford Center
There is a section of S Main that allows parking for one hour. Behind that section it is clearly marked 'No Parking,' however people are parking there in the afternoon! Pulling out of S Main onto Main or pulling out of the parking lots of building 5 and 7 is near impossible when cars are parked there... you can't see around them at oncoming traffic!
7 South Main St Branford, CT - Branford Center
I've witnessed two accidents in about a week at this intersection. I believe both probably could have been avoided had cars not been parked illegally in front of the old theater building. Police do NOT ticket these cars and it makes pulling out of business driveways and S Main Street difficult - you can't see around them!
Stannard Ave And Short Beach Rd Branford, CT - Branford Center
The traffic light on Stannard Ave leading to Short Beach Rd needs to be adjusted or reviewed. It will not change if a motorcycle comes to the light, it seems like it only changes based on the weight of a car. The motorcycles/scooters/bicycles that sit and weight for the light end up running it after about 5-10 min of sitting there, unless a car pulls up behind it. It's annoying and dangerous at the same time. They'll sit out there revving their engines and then finally take the chance to turn left risking oncoming traffic and being hit or killed. Please review this light. and change the way that it indicates when the traffic on Stannard Ave can go. Perhaps on a timer rather than based on a car sitting at the light like it is now, because it's not registering light weight cycles. Please before someone is killed because they take a chance and run a light that won't change.
