500-506 Greenwoods Rd Torrington, CT 06790, USA - Torringford
There are some bushes that block your view on this corner of greenwood that make it hard to enter or leave safely. They need to trim them before someone gets into a accident or run off the road.

When the bank of lights controlling Main St, Litchfield St, and S. Main st(as well as the plaza)turns from red to green, the green arrow light that directs traffic to Litchfield St turns red... for 5 second, literally. This causes people turning onto Litchfield St to jump on their brakes, even from a low speed, and causes fairly frequent accidents. While this seems like a small complaint, it's very easily changed, and should be.

Not many people pay attention to this street, because it's a deadend. But there are constantly people parking right at the corner, in front of the fire hydrant, and inches from the stop sign. When i come around the corner, I have to watch for the car that is parked RIGHT there, as well as watching for cars the other way (yes we get traffic), and watching for children.

Look, i grew up in the city, too. there's not much room for kids to play, but the fact is, the children that congregate here constantly run out in front of traffic, often waving their arms from behind the white van and SUVs parked on this street. Rarely, if ever, have i seen an adult watching these kids(most under the age of 10). More than once i have seen them almost hit. While this is annoying to drivers, it's outright dangerous to the kids who aren't nessicarly aware of the danger they're putting themselves and drivers into. There was almost an accident there tonight(9/17/10)because the leading driver had to slam on her brakes after 2 kids ran out from behind the ford SUV parked on the side of the road, coming within feet of the kids, while the driver behind her almost hit her coming around the corner off culvert st.
That's enough of this. Someone come outside and watch these kids. If it doesn't happen, i'm going to start alerting DCF and the police. It's dangerous to the kids AND drivers.
Spruce Drive - Torrington
People use Spruce Drive as a cut through to avoid the traffic on Winsted Road. They speed down the road and there ends up being too much traffic on a back road that has many elderly residents, young children, and people trying to walk their dogs or take a walk. This is a nice neighborhood and we should not have to worry about people speeding down our road to take a shortcut. I hope the police do something about this.
Litchfield St. - Torrington
There needs to be a sign at intersections with underground triggered traffic lights telling people to pull up to the stop line to trigger the lights - I don't know how many times I have sat behind people who do not have a clue and can sit there for 15+ minutes while people are beeping and inching forward to try to get them to move forward one foot so the light will change!
Route 183 And Torringford Fair Shopping Center - Torrington
The timing on the light at the intersection of Route183 and Price Chopper/Stop and Shop needs to be adjusted.
Every time a car needs to exit one of those two shopping centers, Route 183 gets a red light and the traffic is backing up to East Main.
Greenridge Rd Torrington Ct - Torrington
This has always been hazardous, but now with Stop & Shop going to open, traffic is already heavy and will become in worse. It is nearly impossible to make a left at times. Cars go well above the speed limit. We desperately need a light before someone seriously gets injured

Hospital Hill (Litchfield St) is a DISGUSTING MESS. This road is in dyer need of paving. Way too much traffic on this road to have it in the condition it's in. It is just HORRIBLE.

Drivers turning left from Wyoming Ave. onto Litchfield St. cannot see oncoming traffic headed towards RT 202. The grade of the road is the primary issue. Rate of speed is also a factor. If you drive a small car this increases the danger dramatically.
25 Scoville St Torrington, CT 06790, USA - Torrington
I cannot remember the last time our street was paved and I have lived here for 10 years. The patches hold for only a short time. There are so many holes I'm afraid I will damange my car. Water cascades past the drains creating yet another hazard. Debris (rocks, etc.) fill the street. I will not let my grandson ride his bike due the treacherous road conditions.
Major Besse Drive torrington, ct - Burrville
There is a "no left turn" sign at the end of Major Besse Drive out of THS so all vehicles must use the city owned lower parking lot as a throughway if they need to turn left onto Winthrop Street. This lot is usually full with cars from OWTS students who drive and have no where to park at their school, parents picking up their children, kids who are using the skate park, the many school buses and vans and those who just socialize after school.
At dismissal time this lot is a nightmare to venture through.
And not to mention if there was ever an emergency and an evacuation was in order, there would be close to gridlock conditions in this area.
A traffic light at the end of the driveway would remedy the situation and create a safer envirnment.
The lower parking lot could still be used as an exit but it would be less congested.
This light would also help with speeders going through a school zone.
