1-9 Pearl Street New Haven, Connecticut
People constantly park in the no-parking zones on State Street in front of Pan's Liquors, H&R Block, and the Sunrise Deli (which never seems to be open), blocking the already difficult view of oncoming traffic. In order to see around vehicles parked in those spots, we have to pull farther out into the street, putting ourselves in danger of actually being hit by someone. Since people already drive much more quickly on State than they should, this is an especially dangerous situation. Can something please be done about this? Can the city parking people patrol this area more, ticket, and have towed any vehicles that are parked in those areas designated as no parking zones?

The Pleasant St side of this property would be a great place for a bike rack. People are locking their bikes to sign posts, small trees, and gas meter pipes. I think this would be great to add here.

My bicycle was stolen from the street sign near 821 State St. sometime between 11 pm and 8 am overnight last night (Sept. 24). It is a very tall, black Cannondale SR400 with a rear-mounted metal cargo carrier. It has tan-walled tires, black grip tape, an odometer mount, and front and rear lights as well as reflectors. The quickest unique identifier on the bike are the Chiquita banana stickers on the front fork. The left shoe strap is also broken at the rubber joint on top. This picture closely resembles what it looks like, but my seat cover is more worn with foam visible.

In regards to Pearl St between Orange St and the back entrance to the new Yale School of Management construction site: First, the northern 2 feet of pavement along the entire length of the road is missing (there is no sidewalk or curb and the pavement ends in dirt). This makes for flooding, and accelerated road wear. If the lawn club doesn't want a sidewalk there, at least there needs to be a curb and drainage.
Second: This road is used by NUMEROUS HEAVY TRUCKS that service Cafe Romeo, and the school buses for the New Haven Academy. I assume once the business school is completed they will take truck deliveries through that road as well. Right now, there are deep rectangular potholes on Pearl and the whole width of the road is crumbling at the intersection with Lincoln, which makes for dangerously unstable gravel in the turn. It needs to be repaired now and permanently (not when the business school is complete) with significantly more durable pavement.

let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.
although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.
when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.
this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.
i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.

I am writing to express my concern for pedestrian safety at this intersection. There are no pedestrian right-of-way crossing lights. A barely visible sign (only present on northbound Whitney Ave.) says that pedestrians cross with green light.
This evening I was almost struck by a car making a turn onto Willow St. as I was crossing. The car had to slam on its brakes and swerve--only missing me by a foot or so.
Vehicles drive much higher than the speed limit on Whitney Ave. In addition, cars on Willow St. tend to stop past the white line denoting the pedestrian crossway (though I see a dozen cars not stop at all on a daily basis).
This intersection is dangerous and needs to have a pedestrian crosswalk button or a law enforcement officer handing out red-light violations.
Thank you for your time,
