Worst Parking Lot in North Haven Goes To…

Really? You’re just going to park your car like that and go shopping?

We're unveiling a new column called “Patch Chat” where we hope some local conversations around issues both large and small can grow. If you see something you’d like to discuss with your neighbors, e-mail nicole.ball@patch.com.

Last week I was making a trip into the Stop & Shop on Leetes Island Road in Branford and noticed a car parked nearly sideways in a handicap spot. It got me thinking about troublesome parking lots around North Haven.

Do you remember the woman who was hit while Easter card shopping in CVS on Washington Avenue when a car careened into the building last year? A lot of parking lots along Washington Avenue seem troublesome – let's also not forget the driver who collided into Liberty Dialysis off Washington Avenue last April. 

What are the most troublesome parking lots in town in your opinion?

The toys r us/kids r us parking lot on universal drive. Brutal especially during Christmas season!

On the subject of Babies R Us or Toys R Us... why on earth did the engineers of the plaza decide to put a grooved entrance way leading to the stores? Whenever I wheel my son in (asleep of course) I have to hold my breath hoping he dosen't wake up. Bad design in my opinion!

That whole plaza is terrible, even the Target side...who puts a panera bread, friendly's, ruby tuesdays and Wendy's all in 50 yards of one another.
