A car accident yesterday (9 July 08) at this intersection was the result of a driver speeding through a red light. Police need to crack down on these violations in order to stop these accidents.

i watch cars roll through this stop sign daily (including cops. and school buses.) sometimes it's scary just to cross the street here! some sort of traffic calming should be implemented on cold spring so that cars speeding from 91 to Whitney SLOW DOWN. this would be an excellent place for some of the orange "yield to pedestrians" signs to be installed in the middle of the intersections.
There apparently used to be a crosswalk at Nicoll and Mitchell, but it has faded almost completely out of existence. How are people from East Rock supposed to access the playing fields or the school? By jaywalking? The crosswalks should be restored and pedestrian signage deployed in the street, like most other towns in the Northeast have. That would begin to bring the speeds down on this street, which is posted at 25mph but in reality has traffic speeds of 35-40 -- especially dangerous considering the limited visibility around some of the corners.

There is a large sinking / patched cut here. I'm not sure if it qualifies as a pot hole cuz its just too large. I would call it more like a reverse speed bump.
It looks like this was caused by some sort of utility cut in the asphalt.

Chronic speeding, cars and trucks ignoring "no turn on red sign", cars ignoring pedestrians in crosswalk, cars and trucks running red lights, cars and trucks harassing bicyclists and cars blasting stereos. 24 hours a day.

There is an almost constant stream of trucks traveling up and down Willow St. They are dangerous because there isn't enough room for them on this narrow street. There are signs posted saying "No Thru Trucks" but nobody pays attention to them. The police in New Haven are cracking down on all of the bike riders in the city, but giant speeding trucks traveling on narrow streets that can barely fit cars are just fine! They endanger pedestrians, cars, bikers, and they rip down branches from the trees as they speed along.

The "walk" signals in this intersection do not give enough time to safely cross the street. I barely make it as a young, healthy adult--I can't imagine that the elderly or people with kids can make it before cars start speeding through again.
