Hartford Turnpike And Davis Street Hamden/New Haven, CT - HamdenThe overgrown hedges before the first stretch of sidewalk compromise the safety of runners who face oncoming cars, knowing that they are not visible to drivers through the bushes and shrubs which extend into the roadway.
1340 Whitney Avenue Hamden, CT 06517, USA - HamdenThe town claims to be getting ready to work on whitney like sidewalks . Well they should do these they see the most traffic and are horrible between the children's center and mikes garage. A lot of people jog here and it's dangerous
915 Whitney Ave Hamden, CT 06517, USA - HamdenDeer have been seen crossing Whitney Avenue in the area around the water treatment plant and Eli Whitney Museum. Drivers regularly speed in excess of 50 mph on this stretch and now are at even greater risk of serious injury. Hamden and New Haven should coordinate speed enforcement on this stretch of road, perhaps put up a deer crossing sign and/or install traffic calming mechanisms.

Grandview Avenue Hamden, CT - HamdenIn addition to the ongoing drug use in Hamden Plains Park, I came home last night to a large group of teens trying to toss a pair of sneakers over the wires in front of my house. I don't know if this is still a sign to drug dealers or was always just an old wive's tale, but it is just adding to the further deterioration of the neighborhood. These kids do not live in the neighborhood but come up from south of here to use the park. It would be nice to see a cop drive by this park once in a while.

100 Town Walk Drive hamden, CT - HamdenWhen Exiting Town Walk Drive and taking a left turn at the Intersection of Town Walk Drive and Hamden Hills Drive, the driver has no warning of oncoming traffic. When I look right for traffic the cars come down the hill so fast there is no warning and I have to floor the gas to prevent accidents. I believe a mirror displayed on a telephone pole/street light might prevent an accident here and help drivers observe oncoming traffic.
Ridge Rd - HamdenCyclists ride @ 3-4 abreast at times along Ridge Rd, ignoring cars traveling behind them.

Thomas Street Hamden, CT 06514, USA - HamdenMy wife and I are homeowners here in Hamden, it will be four years
in August. It has been a wonderful experience for us and our two sons.
Our neighbors are wonderful and Hamden's community activities have
been a refreshing option for our children. However, as you know, no
town is perfect. Roads needs to be fix, the schools could be improved,
and who and what kind of businesses that are approved, should be
monitored more closely; nevertheless, my most pressing issue doesn't
involve any of those things. I live at 5 Furman Road, which is at the
corner of Furman and Thomas Street. Thomas St. has become a haven for
speeding dirt bikes, motorcycles, and many times kids from Southern in
cars racing through. Until recently, the police were rarely seen.
Lately, my wife and I have notice more of a police presence, but
naturally they can't see everyone. Our two boys are 13 and 4, and they
play a lot in our backyard. My biggest fear is one of them being
struck by a speeding car or motorcycle. Additionally, the perception
that our section of town has, may erode if this isn't addressed. The problem could be fixed easily with a posted radar machine or a more consistent police presence. Let everyone know that Hamden does not tolerate speeding.
3 Davis St CT 06517 - Hamden
For the past few months left lane drivers on Whitney, going towards New Haven, sitting at the red light, have started flooring it across the intersection to beat traffic when the light turns green...taking a left onto Davis. Honking horns and angry drivers are the result. This happens 90% of the time I stop at that light which is a minimum of twice a day.
With a day-school entrance at that intersection there will be a pile-up or worse one day if something is not done to make people start obeying the signals.
SUGGESTION: The Hamden police need to station an unmarked car and ticket every single car that does this for "failure to yield right of way".
217 Haverford St Hamden, CT 06517, USA - Spring GlenThis intersection needs a traffic light. An ambulance and MANY other car accidents happen in this intersection. People blow right through the stop sign and hit traffic going down ridge road. When you do stop at the stop sign, the trees lined up the street between the sidewalk and street block your view of oncoming traffic. At that point you need to pull forward until you are "in" ridge road where you can and will be hit by another car.
We need to do SOMETHING to fix this intersection!
