Every intersection on Route 7 from Georgetown to Norwalk has a left turn signal light except Grumman Hill Rd. During morning and evening rush hour, cars idle for 2-3 light changes to make a left turn. However, travelers going north and turning into ASML have a turn signal light.
Belden & New Canaan Wilton, Connecticut
During morning / evening commute times, the Belden / New Canaan / Wolfpit intersection is *way* too busy to be intelligently managed by a stop sign; I've seen lines of cars along New Canaan backed up almost to the reservoir, and even during less busy times there are usually two or three cars lined up in all four directions.
A traffic light would make this intersection far more efficient, and if combined with sensors it would introduce minimal delays during off-peak times.

Many drivers, to avoid the red light at Route 7/107 intersection (since a right on red is no longer allowed), use Caraluzzi's parking lot as a cut through. In doing so, they drive as though they are still on a main road (too fast) with little to no regard (they are in a hurry) or cars pulling/in out of parking spaces and/or pedestrians. This lot is busy enough without this added traffic. The other issue with this lot is regarding those who completely ignore the "do not enter" sign at the entrance from Route 107 and exit from that location. The line of sight on Route 107 at that point is very limited so this is dangerous for drivers on 107.
6 Harbor Point Road Stamford, Connecticut
Since Sign of the Whale opened last summer, it has been playing loud music on its rooftop, aided by a DJ shouting into a microphone until 1AM Thursday - Sunday, on any night with warm weather. This has had a significant impact on residents in the South End of Stamford. Local residents have complained to the bar, police and other government authorities, but nothing has changed. With the arrival of spring, Sign of the Whale has opened its rooftop and the loud music has returned. Even after it closes, there have been fights in the parking garage that wake the neighbors up.

Oak Ave, Perry Hill Rd., Center St., and Bridgeport Ave., all converge at one intersection. Many times cars coming down Perry Hill Rd., ignore the stop sign and blow through the intersection. Many times I am waiting at the stop sign to turn onto Briegeport ave., and when I can finally turn safely, a vehile will come down Perry Hill Rd., and cut me off. I have been almost hit several times. A traffice light, with no turn on red, needs to be placed at that intersecion,
Old Belden Hill Wilton, CT 06897, USA
Significant pot holes on the Wilton side of the Wilton/Norwalk border of Old Belden Hill. The Norwalk side is nicely paved. The Wilton side is in need of repair and is causing damage to cars.
44-98 Old Ridgefield Road Wilton, CT 06897, USA
There really needs to be a four way stop where Village Market/ Scoops, CVS/Coldwell Banker and Center Street meet. Every time I am in town there are near misses there with the people coming out of the CVs and village market sides just pulling out because there is no stop sign.
Grand Street Norwalk, Connecticut
There are 2-3 feet potholes on Grand Street in Norwalk. Some are in the middle near 17/18/19 house numbers but a lot at the stop sign perpendicular with the street that Dairy King is on. Very Big ! Please fix ! :)
169 East Ave Norwalk, CT
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.
