  • 2-16 Mount Carmel Avenue Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden

    Alot of time and money seemed to be spent a couple of years ago completely re-engineering this intersection, and it's great that there's a dedicated left turn signal for motor vehicle drivers making a left (while heading south on Rt 10 - Whitney Ave) onto Mt Carmel Ave (heading east). The problem is with all that redesigning no one ever thought to put in a signal that recognizes cyclists. If you get stuck at that light without a car behind you to signal the dedicated left turn the "on demand" signal never changes, and you get stranded in the middle of a fast, busy, dangerous state road. I should point out that this is a heavily used cyclist route and is part of many rides in the greater New Haven area. Can we please install new technology--or properly calibrate the existing infrastructure-- so that it will sense lone cyclists waiting at this left turn signal. Thank you. (Note: a quick Google search brings up several relevant articles, such as this one: http://www.phred.org/~josh/bike/SignalDetection.html)

    Whitney Avenue Hamden, CT - Hamden

    We need a bike lane from Hamden to New Haven. Whitney Avenue is one of the most dangerous roads to ride on, however drivers should not blame cyclists, but the lack of secured paths for cyclists. No rider in their right mind wants to negotiate space with vehicles that can kills us..

    A turn lane for Stop&Shop is needed to allow traffic to flow onto Putnam ave and stop backing up onto Dixwell ave.

  • 2356 Dixwell Ave Hamden, CT - Hamden

    I've been at this intersection in the last few weeks and people run the light nearly 5 seconds after a different light turns green.

    Without proper control, accidents are more likely than ever. I recommend implementing photo enforcement for this light.

  • Skiff St. Hamden, CT 06514, USA - Hamden

    At 6:25 today (Mon. 8/9) I watched as two teen girls cleaned their car out the side window as they waited for the Farmington Canal trail light to change. I asked what they were doing and the driver asked, "What's it to you?" Well, it's my town. So, if you see these disgusting girls in their red chrysler sedan (CT plates # 299-_ _ _) please help keep their trash where it belongs.

    There are no bicycle racks at the Walmart, or at most of the other stores on this shopping plaza, despite the fact that it is a major destination for regional shopping. Anyone know who manages Hamden Plaza?

  • 473 River Rd CT 06518 - Hamden

    The stop signs on the canal trail crossing River Rd are facing the people on the trail instead of the cars.
    Cars drive very fast down River Rd and are not even required to stop at the intersection. The people on the trail often do not see the stop signs, as they are expecting the traffic to stop for them. This is a very dangerous situation. Please help!

    Please repaint intersection lanes coming off x60

    Big problem for those who don't know the rules of the two left lanes getting off CT15 on exit 60. MANY times I have almost been hit from the middle lane trying to come into my far left lane during the left turn onto Dixwell. The dotted line is barely visable!
