Almost hit in cross walk during Walk signal and stop light 3 days in a row on the way with my son to nursery school. Cars illegally parked at Westville Post Office heading to Woodbridge are unable to see red light, so when they leave they often pull out int he middle of a red light while pedestrians are in the cross walk. Also and cars heading to New Haven attempting illegal no turn on red pulling around stopped car into the cross walk almost hit me an my son in the cross walk 2x in 3 days. The New Haven Police could make some good revenue here.

This is why it's unlawful to 'block the box.' I just witnessed an ambulance being hung up on York St trying to pass S Frontage Rd- he sat there for almost an entire light cycle because the intersection was filled with cars attempting to push the red light. You'd think at least in the vicinity of a hospital the rule would be enforced-
Thankfully in this image it's only one car in the box, but it's often many more. They block the crosswalks so pedestrians can't safely pass, too.

Due to the construction on Route 34, traffic gets backed up along South Frontage Road at York Street. Vehicles try to beat the red light and are stopped in the middle of the intersection (blocking the box) during the pedestrian crossing signals, causing pedestrians to weave around the vehicles to cross the street. Because there are three lanes of traffic stopped and some are trying to get out the intersection, they don't see pedestrians weaving around the adjacent cars as they cross. Some pedestrians try to cross against the light when vehicles are stopped thinking it is safe to cross when it clearly is not (photo attached). These condition are extremely dangerous for anyone who uses this intersection and needs to be addressed immediately.

Cars on S. Frontage that go straight through the intersection consistently block the intersection during the all-phase pedestrian crossing during rush hour. This forces peds who want to cross S. Frontage to weave in-between cars, hoping that when the traffic on S. Frontage suddenly starts moving the cars in the intersection will not squash them. I have seen numerous close calls where the driver blocking the intersection/crosswalk starts to drive (during the ped crossing phase) headless of pedestrians trying to cross.
Can we get some traffic enforcement in this area? There is a usually a cop not 30 feet away who makes sure cars can safely exit the parking garage onto S. Frontage - where is the same concern about pedestrian safety?

There have been two deer strikes just last week on Camp St. Traffic is heavy since this is a cut through road to RT66. It would be a good idea to have a "deer" warning sign placed on either end, at the minimum, to help our drivers and animals.

The 2nd Floor of 725 South Main street is currently inhabited. This building is zoned for commercial use only. No one should be living there. This remains ongoing after many reports to the town. This tenant creates an eyesore for the community, and leaves dog feces everywhere which is dangerous to my children.

I hear from friends and relatives that this has been a problem for years. Every week or two, I see some kind of rear-ending on this on-ramp. Tow trucks and police cars are constantly bringing traffic there to a standstill. One need only look at the shoulder of the on-ramp to see all kinds of smashed car debris -- taillight shards and bumper scraps. Even if you're not involved in an accident here, it's still incredibly difficult to wait at the yield sign and crane your neck far over your left shoulder to try and merge onto Rt. 9. Something's gotta change here to make it safer!
