  • Kids vs. Cars Acknowledged
    148-160 Cold Spring Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    The intersection at Everit & Cold Spring Streets is a dangerous one. The cars rarely stop for the stop sign- braking only when oncoming traffic decides to go. This pattern makes it an outrageously dangerous situation for our kids walking to school. In addition, the one safety precaution in place-- the crossing guard posted at that spot-- is frequently late and generally leaves even before school starts, so the kids who are running late (and not necessarily paying attention to traffic) are left to fend for themselves. Today, the crossing guard did not show up at all. The question is not IF a child will be hit by a car, but WHEN if this continues.

    The issue has three parts: 1. What times are the crossing guards SUPPOSED to be present at their stations? 2. How do we ensure the crossing guard is there during the designated times? 3. What can the police do to make it a reasonably safe place for pedestrians to cross? Please help now.

  • Willow St./ Nicoll St. Intersection (East Rock) New Haven/East Rock, Connecticut - East Rock

    Speeding down Willow St. as vehicles come off of I-91 is a major safety concern, especially given the vicinity of East Rock Elementary School and high volume of pedestrian traffic as you enter the residential East Rock neighborhood.

    Suggestions to reduce speeding:

    1) Speed Limit Signs Needed on Willow St. : Currently, there is a noticeable absence of speed limit signs, and none are posted on the east or west bound sides of Willow St. from the stretch from the I-91 exit ramp until after Orange St.

    2) Addition of Stop Signs at Willow/Nicoll St. Intersection: This busy intersection has been a magnet for car and pedestrian accidents for years, and the addition of east and west bound stop signs at the Willow/Nicoll St. intersection could be a quick and inexpensive effort to slow traffic, reduce speeding and hopefully mitigate future accidents. Note: There is currently a traffic light at Willow St./Mitchell Dr., but once past the light, vehicles speed on Willow St. past the Nash St. and Nicoll St. intersections.

  • 242 Canner St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock

    Everywhere in New Haven, drivers treat red lights only as suggestions and speed straight through them, especially if the light has just changed. I see this happen every day, but I've never seen anyone get pulled over for it. It's especially bad at Canner and Whitney. The NHPD and YPD need to crack down before someone gets killed.

  • Willow St./ Nicoll St. Intersection New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    As a major through road, Willow St. (specifically the intersection at Willow St. & Nicoll St.) desperately needs to be repaved and re-marked/re-striped! The road and intersection is laden with uneven pavement, divots and potholes, which are not only hazardous to vehicles and pedestrians, but also result in loud, unnecessary noise in a residential area, especially when large trucks and commercial vehicles speed down Willow St. The very worn out pavement marking and stripping at the intersection is also a hazard to pedestrians as speeding cars are not properly signaled that they are driving through a very busy pedestrian crossing area.

  • 210 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock

    Formerly a dry cleaning business, the building is in extremely unsafe condition: leaking roof, broken windows, rotting floor, rear door unsecured. There is old dry cleaning equipment, probably dry cleaning chemical contamination and waste, asbestos from a rusting boiler, and the building's foundation is rotten and open to the elements creating a rodent problem and allowing rainwater to enter and possibly contaminate groundwater and the surrounding soil with pollutants.

  • East Rock Park -- Playground New Haven, CT - East Rock

    The playground at East Rock Park (College Woods) is heavily used but for as long as I can remember, the latches at the two gates have never worked. This ain't good, folks. It's a safety issue for the kids who play there and a peace of mind issue for the parents of the kids.

    Does NHPD actually enforce noise ordinances against loud car stereos or excessive motorcycle noise?

  • 74-128 E Rock Rd New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock

    Motorcycles without mufflers pass by and create a horrible racket in our home. Are there any noise laws in New Haven that could be enforced?

    Happens every street cleaning day: tow trucks driving 50 miles an hour and blowing through all the stop signs - with a cop car leading the way!
