724 Old Stamford Road New Canaan, CT
There are NO sidewalks available along Route 106 to the Talmadge Hill Metro North train station. This is Hoyt Street in Darien and Old Stamford Road in New Canaan. The issue has been raised with the Town and the State multiple times by many concerned parties going back to 2004. Commuters walk along minimal to no shoulder, in speeding traffic (often 50mph in a 30mph zone) without adequate signage to warn motorists of their presence, no crosswalks for the three cul-de-sac neighborhoods that feed this area, and a lack of lighting. The workers going to the country club along this stretch use the road as pedestrians, as do residents in neighborhood homes.

Every day, my husband and I walk down East Avenue to the East Norwalk train station and back. And every day I am honestly scared something may happen.
Most car drivers completely ignore that pedestrians may be crossing the street, particularly by the on- and off ramps to I-95. Even if the pedestrian light is on green, cars drive all the way to the end of the intersection before stopping. I wonder whether better policing could help, but improved yield signs might also be beneficial.
Another thing I have noticed when driving off the I-95 at exit 16 myself is that the big "Welcome to Norwalk" signs almost fully hide pedestrians from drivers' views. We may want to re-consider whether we value the orientation of our visitors more than our pedestrians' safety, and if a different placement of the signs is an option. If anything, walking and the use of public transportation should be promoted - not turned into an adrenaline rush for all the wrong reasons.

There should be a stop sign here in the middle of the road in front of Gap for the pedestrian crosswalk. Cars rarely stop and are going way too fast through town.

The snow plow got a bit adventurous here and clipped the curb, crushing it and pushing it in. This should be fixed by the town.
Stop sign coming from Webster was twisted by the snow removal crews. Should be straightened. Not that people will stop there now but let's at least get the signs fixed.
34-46 Nod Rd Ridgefield, CT 06877, USA
Graffiti spray painted on road sign. Nod Road just before Pelham. This was reported years ago directly to the town and it still hasn't been fixed. Is this new online approach being monitored by the town are are we just spinning our wheels here.

Corner of 1 Fox Run and Spectacle yard garbage piled up under stop sign into road; another pile on Spectacle from same property into street.
Silver Spring Rd Ridgefield, CT
There is only one stop sign into the intersection from St. Johns. However the intersection is a blind spot if driving north or south on Silver Spring....and cars cut the turn tight....head on collision waiting to happen. Please put three way stop.

Posted Speed is 25. People drive 45-55 on it regularly, Especially on the straight-away. There are kids, people running and walking their dogs alot. Very popular place for people who don't even live on the street to run there. Having someone barrel past you at that speed is unnerving since the road could be considered rather narrow.
Please post signs to slow down, kids in area, etc. Police patrol now and then might curb these habits too. Finally what is with all the graffiti on the stop signs etc around town. Makes Ridgefield look kinda ghetto? Thanks for your time!
2-70 Riding Club Rd Wilton, CT 06897, USA
A few years ago, the town decided to interrupt the flow of traffic on Olstead Hill Road to what is a relatively quiet dead-end road that intersects it (Riding Club Rd.). What back room politics caused this to happen I don't know, but it is absurd.
