Cars coming out of Route 34 ramp routinely drive through red lights in the morning hours, despite the green light for cars coming up College and the walk signals at the pedestrian crossing. Cameras or police car to help ticket for such behavior would be extremely helpful!
165 Church St New Haven, CT
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.
195 Elm St New Haven, CT
midway between high st. and college st., students are constantly streaming across the street. my belief is that students will always take the most direct path across regardless of the crosswalk at york. another crosswalk would be ignored here, as drivers already speed through the light at york.
any chance yale could build a simple pedestrian crossing above the street? i bet there are plenty of local architects who would jump at the chance.

The crosswalk at Orange and Audubon has the same issues as the crosswalk at Lincoln and Trumbull: traffic coming off the Trumbull Street exit and speeding through New Haven streets. There is a badly faded crosswalk painted on Orange Street but drivers flagrantly accelerate past pedestrians in the crosswalk daily. Just this morning 4 cars and a Yale Shuttle drove through the crosswalk *while I was crossing*. To make matters worse, the cars were pulling out into oncoming traffic to pass the Yale Shuttle.
I cross this intersection at all times of the day, and what scares me more than the speed of traffic is that the drivers do not even see me. They are so focused on the Orange/Grove light, even when it's red, that they never notice their surroundings and drive like they're in a funnel on the interstate.
The worst times are the morning rush hour with traffic traveling on Orange from Trumbull toward Grove. In the evening, that pattern reverses at to be cars traveling on Orange from Grove toward Trumbull.
This is incredibly dangerous. Pedestrians both young and old cross here for the housing authority, ACES, and the law firms on Audubon. Please! Add this intersection to this spring's Must-Repaint list, add some police presence especially in the morning rush hour, and consider it for a raised crosswalk!

For 48 hours there has been an invasion or dirt and mortorbikes, operating at ear splitting levels, drag racing on Chapel and College Streets. They seem to drag race west on Chapel, into West Rock, head to East Rock and repeat. The bikes are illegally altered to make the mufflers illegally loud. They also rev their engines, eave in and out of traffic, and block pedestrian crossings. This is in full view of the police, who do nothing about them! It is treacherous and a noise pollution issue!
Thanks! Thanked!129-137 Elm Street New Haven, Connecticut
The pedestrian crosswalk button on the corner of Elm and Temple on the Library corner does not work - the light doesn't turn on, no sound is made, and after attempting to press it, the light will still go through an entire cycle without changing to "Walk".

there is a dangerous dip in the crosswalk at the intersection of Court and Orange where I have nearly snapped my ankle a number of times while jogging. Its about 4" diameter and tricky to see because its partially spray painted with the white crosswalk paint.

To whom it may concern:
Can somebody PLEASE silence the crosswalk signals at the corner of Crown and Orange. They can be heard at all hours of the day from my 3rd story apartment with the windows closed. It is so loud that it requires me to sleep with earplugs and have some sort of white noise during the day to drown out the sound. I reported this issue a little over a month ago, and they were very responsive (which was much appreciated) about lowering the volume on the signals at night. It seemed to make a difference for a week or so, but they are now as loud as before and at all hours. Can you please silence them completely...for the love of God...
Temple And Grove New Haven, Connecticut
There is no traffic signal, or crosswalk available at this intersection in any direction. However, it is a widely used intersection and it is very dangerous for pedestrians to have to run across the street, time the lights, etc.

Vehicles regularly fail to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalks across Temple Street at the intersection of Wall Street.
