Description

I walk up and down Mansfield St. at least twice a day, crossing Division Street and Munson/Hillside in the marked crosswalks. Even when I have begun crossing and am well into the middle of the street, cars blast through the crosswalks at 30 to 40 mph within 1-2 feet of me. Never once has a car stopped for me to cross at either intersection. Even when I was on crutches, no one cared. It is illegal for cars not to stop for pedestrians. If the police observed these crosswalks for an afternoon in unmarked cars, they could issue hundreds of tickets -- and perhaps the behavior of New Haven's drivers would finally change.
