I'm closing this as an issue but it remains an indication of the greater issue - the way the tow company drivers in New Haven operate with complete disregard of traffic laws and safety. And that they seemingly operate without any fear of consequence. They drive how they want. They park where they want. They are like vultures circling our city.
Was just sent a reminder to see if this was closed. However, I never received notice that it was even acknowledged. So no... it is not closed. And I suspect it is not an isolated incident.
Photo didn't come thru but truck was from Crown Towing.
Tree probably fell by now.
I thought Traffic and Parking would close these when they fixed them.
Been open too long. I'm sure they've fixed it by now.
Don't know if this has been fixed but it has been so long I'm assuming it is no longer an issue.
Drove by the other day and it seems like someone tried to paint over them but if the light is just right (which it was that day) it is still a bit confusing.
I'm assuming it was fixed but I no longer park over there nor do I still use a Parkmarx card.
I posted this awhile ago under "#9003 Traffic Light Out of Sync" and only got it acknowledged. Perhaps we can get some attention from this one.
This appears to be getting worse. Now when you get a green on northbound Winthrop at Derby it is impossible to get across the 200ft and make the light at Chapel before it turns red without speeding. It is the same for southbound Winthrop at Chapel making it across to Derby. As a result, 2 or more cars will run the red light.
Once again you are wrong Mr. No No! By posting on this site the information on who to contact was provided, several other residents in the neighborhood were informed of an issue, and LCI was notified to keep an eye on the property.
Stop being so damned negative!!! Stop trying to tell others what to do or how we should use a tool designed to be user defined!!!
Big Tim and Jo No are mistaken. Go back and look at what the site says is their purpose (Click "How It Works" above.) Here's an excerpt:
Governments and other entities responsible for the public space (such as utilities AND PROPERTY OWNERS) become more accountable to the public by acknowledging problems and providing effective communication about solutions. [CAPS are mine]
Mandy is a property owner that several community members have an issue with and are reporting as encouraged by the city administration. That is EXACTLY what this site is for. If you only limit it to reports of "potholes and graffitti" (your spelling) then you are wasting a perfectly useful tool. It also suggests that you haven't really been paying attention to how folks are using the site.
I am closing this for now because of appreciation for the rapid response with the sting. However, prostitution continues in this area. The next time I see a large group like what prompted this report originally I will open a new ticket.
THANK YOU NHPD!!! Please continue to monitor this area.
This is still not fixed. In fact I think the station is getting stronger. It now interferes with my home radio too.
@guest star: Why would you say that? SeeClickFix isn't the one who is supposed to plow the streets. SeeClickFix is only supposed to notify the city that the some folks want the street plowed. If the city didn't respond to the notification then get mad at the city. They are the ones that didn't work. And if you noticed the news during those months almost EVERYBODY on almost EVERY street in almost EVERY neighborhood complained about their streets not being plowed.
There is nothing wrong with getting mad and placing blame but get mad at and blame the right party. (The plowing did SUCK, though.)
The only people who are going to be able to stop the violence and crime happening in our communities are the people who are committing the acts of violence and crime in our communities. The rest of us have to convince them to stop. It's not going to happen unless we directly engage them... build relationships with them... understand what they want and push them to go after it.
I don't think we need more programs. I think we need to fund the ones that make real impact. More importantly I think we need to fund the PEOPLE who are on the ground making direct differences.
There have been numerous studies and plans for calming traffic on Rt. 10 from Kimberly Ave to Skiff St in Hamden. The only thing I've seen come from them are the 'rubber duckies' in the southbound turn lane onto Legion Ave. They've helped a bit but it is still very dangerous crossing there.
West River Memorial Park is virtually inaccessible for most residents. There is a crosswalk at North Frontage but you have to risk your life on Rt 34 to get to it. There is a crosswalk at Derby Ave. In neither crosswalk is there a welcoming entrance into the park. There's no gate. I believe you have to step over a small fence and tumble down a hill to get in. And should you make it to the crosswalks, to cross EBG into the park on foot you need to be quick and a bit suicidal.
We don't have much in our neighborhoods to keep our kids active and occupied. We can't afford to build community centers in every neighborhood and if we could get the facilities we can't afford the staff. We forget that we already have community centers. We have our parks. It's a shame we can't get to them.
The street never got plowed but I'm closing this because nature took care of it. At least residents can still depend on nature. ;)
