Miller Pond Rd. And Bush Hill Rd. Manchester CT 06040 - Manchester
While pulling out of Miller Pond Rd. there is no visibility as to West bound cars. There is a dip in the road on Bush Hill. Therefore, you cannot see the on coming car to your left,until it is on top of you. You actually have to pull out into the travel portion of Bush Hill to see any cars coming. The site line is blocked by mailboxes , tree growth and the dip in the road. Going east on Bush Hill and turning left onto to Miller Pond, you have to go nearly past Miller Pond to get to an area, that has safe visibility, pause,make sure there is no car in the dip of Bush Hill Rd., then turn quickly. This is a very dangerous intersection, however, the town comes to observe in high seated trucks and does not seem to think this is a problem. In addition to this problem is the speeding issue as well.
206 Buckland St CT 06074 - Manchester
3 serious problems on Buckland in SW and Manchester. People should NOT be in the left lane unless they are about to almost immediately take a left turn. People are now text messaging. Cellphones are bad enough. Getting off the HOV lane onto Buckland 6 or 7 cars run the light. Correction, many of them don't run the light, they have no idea there's a light or they just don't care. State wants to close a deficit, then issue tickets for speeding, using hand held cellphone, running lights, and hovering in the left lane. Driving on Buckland is like being in a War Zone.
I- 384 East Hartford, CT - East Hartford
When going to Manchester from E. Hartford on Silver Lane/Spencer Street, there is an on ramp on the right to go to I-384. There is a traffic light there. When the light is red, so one stops at it. They just go about 60 MPH right through the red light. When the light is red, it may mean that pedestrians/bicyclists are crossing. If they do not know about people not stopping at the red light, they may just proceed across. They cannot see if anyone is going through the light, as cars that are stopped there to go straight are blocking their view. Not sure if this will help, as no one obeys no turn on red signs, but it's a start.

493 Adams Street Manchester, ct 06040 - Central Manchester
Cars travel at a very high speed in a 30 mile a hour zone. Not that it makes a difference but there are only 2, 30 mile a hour signs on Adams St. between Middle Turnpike and Center St. one at each end.
I don't know how cars can start from the light on Middle Turnpike past our house going as fast as they do, even wake us up in the middle of the night hearing cars making loud noise from speeding.
We can't get out of our driveway at certain times of the day, traffic is backed up past our house from the light on Middle Turnpike. Not often someone will let us out.
When trying to make a left into our driveway, cars have even passed me on the left and many times they sneak past us on the right, up over the curb and almost side swipe us on the right. When coming from Center St. taking a right into our driveway, because a telephone pole is between 2 driveways we have to make a wider swing to avoid the pole and if we wait for traffic to pass coming toward us, cars beep as us, can't they see what we have to do to get into our driveway. Even if no traffice is coming and we are turning they will pass us on the left. Can't they wait.
Beside ambulances that go up our street SEVERAL times a day, cars travel just as fast and do ambulances need to use their sirens from one end of the street to the other even at night.
Seeing I am doing so much complaining, when I learned to drive the rule was if an ambulance or fire truck was coming toward you or behind you we were to pull over and wait for them to pass. I don't know how many times I have pulled over to have cars pass me and keep going. The other day a fire truck was coming toward us on Center St. two cars were behind me. I pulled over, car behind me pulled over the third car passed us both, and before the fire truck passed the car behind me pulled out and came around me. Where did they learn to drive?
I almost got hit one day stopping at a 3 way stop sign. I was going to take a left but had a feeling the car coming toward me was going to fast to stop, yes he never did stop right through the stop sign. I would have gotten hit broad side. I have seen this so many times, what are people thinking. It was also a stop sign in front of a school.
If only a police car would sit on Jarvis Rd. they would make a lot of money on tickets.

Intersection Of Hilliard And Adams Street Manchester, CT - Central Manchester
If Traveling WEST on Hilliard Street when you approach the Traffic Light at Adams Street the Light Will NOT Change unless you are on an approx 1 Foot area section of the Road, in fact the Light will cycle several times and let Eastbound traffic cross Adams Street but the WEST Bound side will Stay Red and will NOT Change unless you finally back up or roll far enough forward into the intersection that your vehicle is recognized, many times after sitting there while the light cycles several times and changing for the East bound but Staying Red for the WEST Bound traffic I will either go through the Red light or Turn Right and then have to cut thru the Fiber Optic Company Property only to come back East to the Light to Turn Right to Go South on Adams Street, This light needs to be addressed , There is an Optic Sensor up on a pole that faces the WEST Bound traffic on Hilliard but perhaps it is also broken or ineffective ??? The problem still exists and often occurs at night when there is only one car at the Light heading West on Hilliard and the Light will cycle for East Bound cars on Hilliard then the light cycles back to North and South Green, basically ignoring the fact that there is a car sitting on the Westbound side of Hilliard waiting to cross ...
731-871 Hillstown Rd Central Manchester, CT 06040, USA - Manchester
Tall grass on east edge of Hillstown creates sight line issue when turning left or right onto Hillstown from Bush Hill Rd. This grows higher as summer continues. Town discussions went nowhere last year, requested Police traffic assessment, instead got Zoning Officer with predetermined attitude after several calls to coordinate meeting at location.
