330-472 Putnam Ave Hamden, CT 06517, USA - HamdenTo enable cyclists to access the Farmington Canal, shopping centers, and the family neighborhoods in this area, I propose putting in bicycle lanes on Putnam Ave. between Whitney Ave. and Dixwell.
1630 Whitney Ave. Hamden, CT - Spring GlenToday I saw a police car (one of the SUVs) pull up beside me at a red light. The officer stopped for a second, looked around and drove straight through the red light. They had no emergency lights flashing and they were driving rather slowly. I caught up with the car eventually on the same street and they still had no lights flashing. Obviously, this officer was not off to an emergency, but rather chose to abuse their power.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
CT - Hamdenpavement is in very bad shape here
568 Ridge Rd CT 06517 - Hamden
Approaching this intersection on a bicycle, despite the light being green, it may change while you ride through, with you never seeing the yellow.
Cars to the left & the right on Hartford Turnpike have poor visibility of the traffic coming from Ridge, and may not see you, resulting in an accident in which the cyclist will be at fault, despite their having crossed on green.

40 Waite Street Hamden, CT 06514, USA - Spring Glen
where do I begin.....
- Lawn never gets mowed (yes I mean never)
- Silver metallic tarp that acts as a garage door
- windows broken
- front door pulled off it's hinges and propped up against the opening.
- Overgrown shrubs on the corner of Coram and Waite that make pulling out of Coram St dangerous.
Just when you think this house can't look any worse it does. The house is an eye sore and looks abandoned. Now with the front door proped up against the house I believe it to be a safety issue. If you want to live like a hillbilly you should live in the woods somewhere. Not in a Spring Glen neighborhood.
