2979 Main St Stratford, CT 06614, USA
The new traffic lights and crosswalk designations at this intersection have made it very dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles exiting or entering the Little Red School. This intersection was already well known for collisions due to people over shooting and running the lights here, the fact that the new lights have been moved in the WRONG direction have exacerbated an already dangerous problem. The lights are now almost totally unreadable from BOTH driveways at 2979 and 2965 main street (The Little Red School). there have been 2-3 accidents here yearly and I myself was almost hit while walking across main street. In addition the new crosswalk painted designations were routed DIRECTLY into the driveway of 2965 main, supposedly for "wheel chair access"... if a car or worse an SUV is exiting this same driveway onto main street it creates a VERY VERY dangerous situation for an upright pedestrian in that crosswalk, never mind someone in a wheelchair who is 3 feet lower...
All in all this is a discracefull situation especially considering the local children who come and go on this property six days a week, The LEAST that can be done is to have 2 traffic lights installed on the existing installation facing the two driveways of The Little Red School of Art and Music. This would AT LEAST give the traffic exiting onto main street a chance to do it safely.

I agree that it is very dangerous trying to enter and exit the Little Red School.....especially when their are so many children involved.....it is ..after all a school and it should be a safe zone for entering and exiting the area.....I have many times been afraid to enter and exit that driveway.Barbara Martino (Guest) 7 months ago Report as Inappropriate

I work there. Many times I've been exiting and people have been waiting to cross or have been crossing. It's very scary. Especially in the winter with the ice. I use this crosswalk as do some of our children who walk to the school. It's highly dangerous now and terrifying.theresa manus (Guest) 7 months ago Report as Inappropriate
