I just passed College and Crown and this happened. So there's at least one more
THis is a problem ALL OVER TOWN. Pedestrians see a RED HAND even though ONE-WAY traffic is stopped. You may observe this phenomenon all over NHV. It's ridiculous and stupid, and there must be a way to fix it, especially at intersections where they already placed new infrastructure like lights and switches. It's really frustrating and it makes drivers believe pedestrians are impatient.

I'd rather have bright lights on the street, and make residents provide their own window shades/blinds, etc. The same way we do it with the SUN!

This has been an unofficial contraflow lane long before they were made legal by the state. All it would take to make it real is some paint! What's the hold-up over there on Court Street?

The bike should be 'drawn and quartered' on the Green
Great idea, but it would have to be concrete (jersey) barrier-like protection to encourage regular use. Just look at that beautful GREEN lane on MLK boulevard and the hordes of cyclists fighting over one another to use that lane! :p

The speeding and red-light running are "life-and-death" issues. Please address this in neighborhoods! (I see it being addessed downtown during evening rush-hour and I am thankful).

This should be a 4-way stop
Fair Haven = Da wild-wild EAST. No law in these parts.

This whole section of the very pretentious 'Chatham Square' neighborhood "looks awful". Whatever the solution to graffiti is, it won't matter until these people can afford to own their property. That's why CSNA is constantly trying to attract new homeowners. The banks and other slumlords won't cut it.

neighbor,

If you can't take criticism, you can shut your ears. J-O-K-E

I almost forgot about the time I came downtown on a Friday night to find 3 Dattco buses parked end-to-end completely blocking the crosswalk. As Quinnipiac girls came out of the buses, NHPD were far more concerned about directing them safely across the green. Forget about the RESIDENTS trying to cross 3-lane Temple Street with no crosswalk.

This town is a JOKE

Really? This is the problem for pedestrians. It's not what happens DAILY?? (i.e. cars IGNORING the crosswalk). Gimme a break.

It doesn't matter about cars parked in the left lane on Sundays. It happens every single g'dam day!

Here's a good one:

1. Bus driver stops to pick me up. I honestly don't remember if he kneeled or not. (That's not my point).
2. I proceed to load my bike properly and LOCK it, just to be cautious. I had previously witnessed 2 teens make off with a passenger's bike as the bus came to a stop. So, I didn't want to take any chances.
3. Bus driver beeps and signals (I finish locking).
4. i get on and he asks "what did you do that for?"
5. I excitedly tell him about the incident I witnessed and tell him "don't be offended, but it's not your job to keep my bike safe. I don't even know you."
6. He tells me to calm down. I do.

I keep telling people: New Haven is not the place to address "quality-of-life" issues. NHPD does not respond to those kind of calls. Buy a car and move out of New Haven if you want a peaceful existence. You'll save a lot of money too.
That's it! We're shutting the bridge down. It's not working.

As far as I can tell the whole of Pine Street needs re-paving (especially from Blatchley to Atwater). It has to be one of the worst roads in town

NHPD does not respond to noise complaints and other quality-of-life issues in Fair Haven. Sorry. You'll have to move to a nicer part of town.
