Issues: bike concern
Valley View Lane Vernon Rockville, CT 06066, USA
This street is a small no outlet street. A wonderful neighborhood to raise children. But please don't go out for walks at dinner time or later. Lots of people speed around the circle. My family and I have almost been hit 3 different times! Once my Husband stopped the man that came only inches from hitting us. This person had been drinking!! In all honesty, if we hadn't moved quickly, us or one of our 3 children would have been hit. The speed limit is 25. Very quiet neighborhood but lots of speeding cars!! Peterson Rd. which Valley View is off of is also an issue with speeding. It's a long road with only a stop sign at the very end. There are sidewalks on Peterson however. Thank goodness. I worry about all the kids walking to & from school. I've reported this speeding to the police station to no avail. I want to feel safe while walking or riding bikes with me children!

This is a thread to discuss issues related to the ongoing problem of violence in some areas of New Haven and surrounding towns. Please vote here if you want to see this problem addressed and if you agree:
1. Every citizen has the right to freedom from fear: a safe neighborhood and a safe house.
2. No child living in New Haven or anywhere else nearby should have to hear gunshots every week in their neighborhood (I currently do!).
3. A friend recently said "it is easier to get a gun than a quart of milk in my neighborhood." This is obviously not an acceptable situation.
4. A comprehensive community strategy is needed to stop the violence. Elected representatives should be able to explain exactly what they are doing to support the community's strategy.
5. The constant outdoor gunfire at the police training range is not acceptable. People living in Newhallville and Beaver Hills hear constant gunfire from this range and it sends the wrong message.
Please post ideas for community organizing to stop the message, links to relevant pages, etc -- and send the message to everyone that enough is enough!

When these 2-3 trees have leaves, they block the view of pedestrians and cyclists for drivers on the US-1 North onramp. The drivers are often going 50+ mph and won't have enough warning if a pedestrian starts to cross at the wrong time.
These trees should be removed or at least have the road-side branches severely pruned to maximize visibility.
NB: This area gets a fair amount of pedestrian and cyclist traffic as the primary pedestrian/bike connection between Princeton proper and the Princeton Forrestal campus (and Plainsboro).

We live in the condos right off Nolensville Rd, on Bienville Dr. Numerous times, while pulling out of our parking lot and onto Bienville, we have nearly gotten hit by cars that speed up and down Bienville. There are no stop signs on Bienville until you dead end into Sunnywood Dr (almost a quarter of a mile and all downhill). Many cars choose to avoid the school zone on Nolensville by speeding down Bienville and taking Sunnywood. I used to jog and bike ride on our street but I cannot anymore because I've almost been run over three times while crossing Bienville. It is terrifying to see people fly up and down our street and we really need a speed bump somewhere on Beinville. Please.
West Hart Rd. Saginaw, MI
This road always gets neglected. We get a shovel of asphalt here and there or once in a while we get tar & stones. It needs much more than than that....we have had to have our car repaired twice in recent times because we have to drive on this road. It seems a trail for walkers and bikes is more important than a road that the residents have to travel on to get to and from home....why is that?
