The intersection of Brewery and Water Streets is very dangerous because there is no prohibition for making a right turn on red from Brewery Street onto Water Street. When the pedestrian signal says walk, people are taking right turns onto Water Street when there are people in the crosswalk. It is very very unwise. Example: Massive dump truck involved in highway construction turning right as person in crosswalk is approaching. At times there is a constant stream of cars and SUVs etc doing the same, in a hurry, and not caring how this scares people trying to rely on this cross signal. The pedestrian signal works fine and the cross walk has the standard markings. Wouldn't hurt to mark it even better, but the no right turn on red is an absolute necessity and should be in place now. A high school is located at this intersection as well and when buses are coming and going it is almost chaotic

THIS COMPLAINT HAS BEEN POSTED MULTIPLE TIMES STARTING IN DECEMBER.
WHY CAN'T THIS BE ENFORCED ??? IS THE CITY TOO AFRAID TO TALK TO DIRECTOR KAREN DUBIOS-WATSON ABOUT THE FACT HER WORKERS CAN'T COMPLY WITH COMMON SENSE OR THE CITY ORDINANCE THAT PROHIBITS THE THROWING OF SNOW BACK INTO THE STREET ???
MAYOR HARP PLEASE COMPEL YOUR DIRECTORS TO WORK TOGETHER LIKE YOU ARE ASKING THE PUBLIC TO DO.

I had a real scare this morning with a Yale officer who came FLYING off a sidewalk from the YPD station up Sachem at a minimum of 25 mph on a motorized 3 wheel pedi-mobile(?) without even looking or slowing down and with no regard for his or anyone elses safety. I know Police can do whatever they want and there are circumstances that warrant these actions, but seeing him further up the road moments later, this did not appear to be an emergency. Don't those things come with a horn/lights/ or warning system for drivers who can only see 20 feet in both directions. If I wasn't such an observant driver he would have been under my vehicle.

This is what the street looks like at 9:30AM. Massive excess of road capacity which leads to speeding, combined with poor conditions for pedestrians and cyclists.
A buffered bike lane, which is a standard in NYC and Philadelphia now, would make the street safer for all road users by narrowing it and reducing speed.
This is a very popular bike route and with an actual lane, bike use would triple overnight (based on experiences of other cities that do this). This would free up more parking for local businesses to thrive and hire more staff.
Downtown New Haven New Haven, CT
More exemplary driving from city workers! This morning, 9:30 am, on Chapel, this car with a government license plate drove slooooowly up the left lane approaching Church. (I was directly behind.) Once the driver reached the intersection, the light turned red. Driver then decided s/he actually wanted to turn right, so veered diagonally into the right lane in front of all the cars that were waiting there. Passenger waved at them out her window. The car then proceeded to start making an illegal right turn on red, as pedestrians were crossing the street and traffic was moving along Church. Then the driver decided to stop partway, blocking both crosswalks. The photo attached was taken just as the light turned green (it took me some time to grab my camera), but shows the position this fine driver wound up in during the course of this red light.
I complain often about the crap driving and disregard for rules all over the city (with, we now know, deadly consequences for pedestrians). But why should citizens follow the rules when the representatives of the city so brazenly disregard them? Parks dept. trucks and even police cars drive around with zero regard for ordinary laws of safety and civility. We notice. Can the city maybe start doing something about this?

On State Street, there are several lights out under the Oak Street Connector overpass. I counted at least 3 lights out on Saturday, 11/8/14. This area would be safer for pedestrians if it was more well-lit.

Multiple cars of parents towed away while dropping their kids off at Edgewood school this morning due to new towing policy for street sweeping. Non residents traveling to the school were largely unaware given lack of signage. Only one sign posted on the entire expanse of West Rock near the school and said sign was posted low to the ground rather than on a poll.
37 Trumbull Street New Haven, Connecticut
NY City just lowered their speed limit from 30 to 25 mph. I am sure at the intersection of Orange and Trumbull Streets two accidents could have been avoided were the victims going anywhere near 30. No lives were lost. . .only injuries and property damage.
Coming into the intersection off I-91 the ramp speed has a sign for 35 mph.
The intersection has another unfortunate feature. The road surface has a drop from one level on west side of the intersection to a slightly lower elevation at the base of the on-ramp alongside Trumbull. Add the various potholes and you have trucks bouncing through the intersection, especially their speed is excessive.
When the Fucci project completed after the sewer work, they repaved the Length of Trumbull from Prospect to Orange and across the intersection. Smooth new pavement brings speed until you hit the rough old road and then you get noise.
Post a speed limit. . . start with 30.
Repair the road surface to quiet the traffic.
