New Haven is an older city that goes back to the early Colonial days in the U.S. and, as a result, many of its streets are on the smaller side. For the most part, mid-sized and smaller vehicles are your best bet for driving in comfort in New Haven because there are times when larger SUVs and trucks may feel oversized on the road. This is especially the case when it comes to finding on-street parking.
Residential and neighborhood roads in New Haven feature speed limits of 20 to 40 mph, while urban roads go up to 50 mph. Outside of New Haven proper, the roads have speed limits of anywhere from 45 to 55 mph. Interstates have speed limits that go up to 65 mph.
The average price per gallon of petrol in New Haven is around $2.60. This is fairly average for the Northeast, with New York City having comparable prices.
If you are in the downtown area, parking garages and lots are likely the safest bet. On-street parking can be difficult to find downtown, especially during the peak hours of the day. Outside of the downtown core and university district, streetside parking is plentifully available and drivers should have an easier time finding available spaces. Hourly parking garages in New Haven typically start at $2.00 per hour.
