70 Howe St. New Haven, Connecticut
There was trash and recycling pick up at 5:45 am on Thursday and 4:25 am on Friday. This issue had been resolved previously, but the issue has started up again. Obviously the pick up company isn't listening to the messages that have been sent to them. Some action needs to be taken.

A bike box would be great where the northbound bike lane on Prospect Street ends at Trumbull.
*There is a high volume of right turns across the bike lane, leading to a high risk of a right hook incident.
*The bike lane ends, so bicyclists need to start merging out into the lane anyway.
*This entire intersection is being rebuilt, so marginal cost of striping a bike box will be lower than any other intersection in the entire city.

At the corner of Elm and College, there is a right turning lane that intersects with the bike lane. It is difficult for cars to see bikes as they turn, which has resulted in several accidents. Technically, both have the right of way here, so it is incredibly dangerous for both cyclists and drivers. Please fix this issue before more people get hurt.
Perhaps this could inspire a solution? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlApbxLz6pA

so many issues on see click fix involve the need for more enforcement of traffic laws, and more protection of pedestrians and cyclists.
the following things have happened to me in the past week (to help paint a picture of how many happen overall):
i was cursed out in the crosswalk in front of the police station for daring to cross legally, because i'm a "b*tch" who thinks i can "walk wherever i want"
i flipped over my handlebars after nearly being missed by a car running a red light, and then was nearly missed by the car speeding behind me. neither of the vehicles stopped to see if i was ok.
i was cursed at for riding in line with sharrows on state street because i should "get out of the way" and "stay on the #$%&# sidewalk"
a man and i, while crossing in a crosswalk, were violently honked at, despite crossing legally, and the fact that he was using a cane. when i challenged the driver honking, a stream of curse words came, and the driver behind him screamed "WELCOME TO NEW HAVEN, WE DON'T GIVE A @#$%"
while waiting at a red light going straight towards the train station, with my bike physically stopped ON A SHARROW, a man got out of his BMW to ask me why i wasn't all the way over to the right (even though that is a turn lane and i wasn't turning) and when i explained why, he started screaming that i'm "supposed to let all the cars pass" since i was "blocking all the traffic" (while stopped at a light legally, and after keeping up with the flow of traffic for my entire trip) (and, "let all the cars pass"? so i should wait at each intersection until not one car exists?)
with this level of aggression, it is a wonder we walk or bike at all.
our city needs to take more serious steps towards protecting the roads most vulnerable users.

I have a suggestion for the Yale Bikeshare program. I am a professor who commutes to New Haven on the train. I'd love to have a bike share pod at the New Haven train station or the State Street station that would speed my trip from the station to the campus and back. Right now, sometimes I just haul a scooter along with me, which is fun, too, but I'd rather share a bike.

City gov is not keeping up with demand for bicycling.

Because one of the bike routes here takes a left turn at this intersection, the current sharrow configuration appears to encourage bike riders to attempt to turn left from the right-hand lane, which is dangerous and illegal. Please add a sharrow in the left-hand lane in order to encourage proper roadway positioning. Thanks!
