Automated traffic enforcement can help save lives on Connecticut’s city streets

Sunday, Nov. 15 marked the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.  The Safe Streets Coalition of New Haven gathered on the New Haven Green to call for change in our city, and across Connecticut, to make streets safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users.  As of Nov. 15, 12 pedestrians and cyclists have died this year after being struck by a vehicle in New Haven – an increase from the nine lives lost in 2019.  These entirely preventable deaths are not just statistics.
