Issues: street signal
1668-1670 Whitney Ave Hamden, CT 06517, USA
They recently changed the traffic light on the intersection if Hawthorne an Whitney and it takes a ridiculous amount of time to change green and allow cars onto Whitney. I witness people running this light all the time after waiting for several minutes. No one was complaining before the light timings were changed (so this "easing of traffic on Whitney" is doing more harm than good).

New traffic lights on Whitney Ave. are backing up traffic on it unnecessarily. The one at Glendowner Rd./Ridgewood Ave. is the worst, those at Thornton St. and Hawthorne Ave. almost as bad. They seel to be on fixed cycles, staying on green for the side streets when there is no traffic on them for much longer than needed. The old signals worked much better as they adapted to the traffic flow. I hope somebody in charge can report that this problem will be fixed as soon as possible. We may need traffic calming on Whitney but this is not the way to do it.

This traffic light will often wait some 15 seconds with red lights in all directions including the pedestrian signals. This is way longer than necessary for safety. Perhaps this is needed while an officer is directing traffic while utility work is going on, but it is totally unneeded and annoying at other times.

With the replacement of the traffic lights, new street signs are needed on Whitney at Gillies Rd. and Hawthorne Ave. Probably they are part of the replacement project, just want to be sure they are not overlooked. They are essential for those unfamiliar with the area.
Whitney Ave & Waite Street Hamden, CT
The timer on these new lights at Whitney and Waite need to be adjusted. You sit for several minutes on Waite waiting for the light to change even at odd hours when there are no cars on Whitney Ave at all.

This intersection needs a traffic light. An ambulance and MANY other car accidents happen in this intersection. People blow right through the stop sign and hit traffic going down ridge road. When you do stop at the stop sign, the trees lined up the street between the sidewalk and street block your view of oncoming traffic. At that point you need to pull forward until you are "in" ridge road where you can and will be hit by another car.
We need to do SOMETHING to fix this intersection!
