New Haven mayoral candidates Senator Toni Harp and Alderman Justin Elicker faced off in their final debate of the election season on October 22.
The debate covered a wide variety of topics, but both Harp and Elicker did touch on street safety in the city.
Elicker mentioned he wanted to change many of the city's one-way streets and make them two-way, which is currently under study in the city. He said the one-way streets are in favor of vehicles and make the streets more dangerous.
Harp on the other hand said she wants to look into why there are one-way streets in New Haven. He mentioned that an issue with prostitution was solved on her street by converting it from a two-way to a one-way. She added that she wants to see more roundabouts in the city to help slow traffic down.
