During the morning rush hour, westbound traffic often becomes backed up.due to the merge and possibly left turns into Brookview or Brewster Roads further west. When the westbound light turns yellow, and sometimes red, a number of cars or a truck will pull into the intersection, blocking Mountain Road during its green light, in hopes that traffic will move faster than if they waited for another green. Last week, a double length cargo container truck pulled into the middle of the intersection after the Mountain Road light had turned green and blocked the intersection for the entire green light on Mountain Road. On the next cycle, another truck did the same thing, blocking the intersection for a second entire green light. On the third cycle, three cars pulled in on the yellow light blocking Mountain Road again, before the line of cars on Mountain Road started collectively laying on our horns and forcing our way through the stopped cars. It is not usually this bad but it often happens whenever Bloomfield Avenue id backed up between 7:50am and 8:00am when people are running late for work.
The other bad behavior is running the red light, sometimes at high speed, usually in the westbound direction. and not always during the morning rush, when speeds are slower. Typically when the light turns green on Mountain Road, you have to check both ways to be sure that someone trying to time the yellow light is not running into the intersection at speed on red. This behavior is so frequent that other residents north of Bloomfield Avenue tell me that they too are in the habit of waiting on green, expecting someone to run the red light.
Within the last two weeks, I was waiting to turn left onto Bloomfield Avenue at about 1:00pm. A few seconds after my light turned green, a westbound tractor trailer, a straight truck and an SUV all entered the intersection on red at high speed with the last two tailgating so close that they probably couldn't see what color the light was when the semi went through. If I had gone on green, I would have been T-boned to death by that semi and the following vehicles would have been pancaked as well.
I'm tempted to get a dashboard camera to document the frequency.

Cars and often larger, slower vehicles, even with trailers, at the end of Day Hill Road turn right with little regard for oncoming southbound Poquonock traffic. In particular, there are unsafe right turns on red in front of oncoming southbound cars 1) without a safe distance and 2) cars turn right but head two or three lanes over to enter I-91 northbound without evaluating the safety of immediatly crossing lanes in front of multiple lines of oncoming cars. Please bring this to the attention of the Windsor Police Department.
198 Pleasant St Windsor, CT 06095, USA
The level was rising at 7AM this morning - was over Pleasant and was moving very quickly. Almost looks like the Mill Brook cistern is plugged again. Pleasant needs to have flood barricades erected for traffic.
Putnam Hwy Windsor, CT 06095, USA
There's a strip of large potholes and cracked pavement that runs a good portion of the highway at this location. It causes a pretty bad slowdown and general traffic hazard with people trying to drive around or slamming on the brakes at the last minute.

Drivers are unable to see over the median for uncoming traffic and vis versa.
Pigeon Hill Road Windsor, CT
Horrible pot holes are in many areas of this road. It's already a narrow road, making it hard to take some of the turns on a normal day, so these pot holes are making it extremely difficult to drive. You have to drive on the complete opposite side of the road to avoid them, or come to a complete stop if unable to pass them due to oncoming traffic. I'm glad I know where they are so I do not drive over them, as they seem large/deep enough to do some damage to my car!!
