Issues: bad driving
12 Court Street New Haven, CT
I just moved here and found an apartment on Court and I love it -- it's nearness to the park and to downtown. I especially love that Court Street is almost like a pedestrian mall but that several people continue to park on Court Street despite the fact that it's clearly posted no parking. I have to park my car on Academy or sometimes Greene, Wooster Place, or even Chapel (god forbid) so I don't know why people feel entitled to blighten beautiful court street's lovely ambience by selfishly parking their cars where they should not be. Not trying to cause people trouble, but come on, be good neighbors. Thanks

There are 2 lights at this intersection. For a real long time drivers heading south on Adams run the 2nd set of lights at the intersection of Raintree and Adams. As you head east from Raintree to turn onto Adams you have to wait until all of the traffic goes thru the intersection regardless if you have a green light or not.

There was one of those giant, white city vans (Not sure which department) parked in the "firelane" at 200 Orange area. Behind the empty city van sat a small sedan with a woman inside it. She looked like a regular New Havener. I believe she was talking on her phone, minding her business.
At that point, a recognizable See Click Fix user (A Jane Jacobs, in fact) was walking by. Noticing the woman in the car (and apparently not the huge city van) this SCF user turned around, made eye contact with the citizen in the sedan, and pointed to what looked to be a city sign (which probably indicated that this area is no longer used for parking like it once was).
The SCF user stood there for about 5 seconds, pointing at the sign and making eye contact. A very serious look on her face. No words were exchanged, but the meaning was clear: "Jane Jacobs" wanted this private citizen to MOVE ALONG, and OBEY THE RULES.
So, while I would normally just report "Illegal parking in the firelane in front of 200 Orange/Webster Bank", what was really bothersome was the possible altercation that could have happened between this recognizeable SCF user and a private citizen sitting in her own car on Orange Street.
Is SCF meant to carry on into the daily mindset of the community? Are SCF reporters, in essence, "Deputized" by city departments to be the ears, eyes, and arms of city hall
Why was/is it acceptable to this Jane Jacobs that an 16 foot city van be parked illegally, while a tiny sedan with an actual person in it, be worthy of her firm attention.
Should we all be engaging other members of the public when we witness them doing something wrong? or should we just report it here?

1. it endangers people (the very citizens paying their salaries, mind you) in crosswalks
2. it often impedes the flow of traffic (sometimes blocking entire travel lanes)
3. it sets a bad example, often leading others to park illegally next to them
will the city take meaningful steps to fix this problem or just continue to look the other way for their own?
because if it is the latter, that is not the type of city i want to live in. and to be perfectly clear: silence = acceptance, city hall.

Parking enforcement and a curb extension are needed here before a mom pushing a stroller is killed by vehicles & trucks flying around the corner.
What kind of traffic engineer designed this disaster?
698-752 E Walton Blvd Pontiac, MI 48340, USA
At the intersection of Walton and Stirling Lake Drive, drivers are pulling around the stopped traffic for the red light into the right turn lane onto Stirling Lake drive, endangering traffic with a clear green light pulling on to Walton Blvd. Drivers are running this light ALL the time.
86 2nd St New Haven, CT 06519
light blue car, CT plate # 701-UZS constantly parked in front of "No standing anytime" sign, @ corner of Second & Greenwich--including during snow emergency, so storm drain is never plowed, creating lake for days @ intersection, which backs up into my driveway
23 VotesFix it! Voted!Park Rd And Klingle Rd Nw Washington, DC
Drivers going west on Park Rd routinely run the red right-turn arrow to turn right onto Park. They seem to think the green light for going straight onto Klingle applies to them, not noticing the red right-turn arrow. It is dangerous for pedestrians crossing Park on the north side. Could we get improved signage or some traffic-calming measure here?
