Petition Tag - intersection
Every day cars and particularly trucks run the red light where Rosanna Rd crosses Darebin St. There needs to be some kind of deterrent for this reckless and dangerous behaviour.
This intersection is used constantly for pedestrians accessing the shops, the primary school and the childcare centre on the corner of the intersection.
Older children from the primary school also use the lights to walk home by themselves. Please support this petition to greatly reduce the risk of potential tragedy.
The town of Torbay is a beautiful place to live and raise a family. One major turn off from this town is the speed in which the traffic travels and there are congested intersections that are extremely difficult to get out of in a timely manner.
The intersection of Torbay Road, Marine Drive and Convent Lane being one of them. During times of high traffic it can be very hard to exit in either direction to make a left hand turn onto Torbay road from Marine Drive or Convent Lane due to the fact that you can not see very far in either direction. You have a blind hill on one side and a blind turn on the other side.
In my opinion this is quite hazardous. Not to mention that there is not one but two schools less than a half of a kilometre from this intersection and the school buses drivers use this to exit onto the main drag to return their precious passengers home at he end of the school day. The speed of the traffic and inability to see the vehicles coming is dangerous for those children who are walking home and need to cross Torbay Road. Although there is a flashing yellow light, it isn't enough.
So before something tragic happens, I am suggesting that a four-way traffic light be placed at the intersection of Torbay Road, Marine Drive and Convent Lane.
There have been several near-miss situations with respect to pedestrians and vehicular traffic. Heavy traffic patterns throughout various times of the day result in long wait periods for drivers travelling east/west or turning left to travel north/south.
Current crosswalk light system is insufficient for the following reasons:
1. Safety of pedestrians and school crossing guards during peak school traffic periods.
2. Safety of pedestrians during non-peak school traffic periods.
3. Vehicular traffic has increased significantly, rendering present crosswalk light insufficient.
4. Vehicular traffic uses intersection as 4-lane, instead of 2-lane. Many drivers go around a vehicle turning left without taking the crosswalks into consideration.
5. Development continuing in the area which will increase vehicular traffic.
There have been several accidents that have occurred at the Orchard Lake and Grand River intersection due to the blinking yield light that is located at 31233 Grand River Ave (Valero Gas Station). There should not be a yield light at this intersection, it is very dangerous and has caused many people accidents and unnecessary anguish.
The intersection located in Fyshwick between Geelong Street and Canberra Avenue has low visibility, traffic driving at high speeds and a complicated lay out. These factors greatly increase the danger when trying to cross the intersection.
In the past few months, several people have been killed in traffic accidents within the vicinity of Canberra Avenue. This intersection needs improvement to ensure the safety of all drivers using the area.
The lethal intersection of Roper Road with the Pathways Estate has been an ongoing safety issue. A pedestrian pathway on the outside of a sweeping bend, trees on the inside of the bend which restrict vision and no street lighting. Add this to a poorly constructed camber, no line markings and no speed signs from one direction and we have a recipe for ongoing disaster.
This petition is designed to finally get action from the Rural City of Murray Bridge Council to finally modify this corner to substantially improve its safety.
We the people of the community request a traffic light be installed at the intersection of Hwy 29 and 9 1/2 mile road located in North Pensacola. A traffic light is desperatley needed at the intersection of Hwy 29 and 9 1/2 mile rd. There have been numerous accidents with three of them causing fatalities in the past 4 months.
Members of Northside Apostolic rd located at the intersection fear for their life or that an accident may occur each night they head to church. Parents fear an accident may occur when arriving at this intersection on the way to taking their children to and from Pine Meadow Elementary School which is located close to the intersection as well.
Please help us as concerned people of the community to get a traffic light at this intersection before another fatality occurs.
There have been numerous amounts of traffic accidents at highway 33 and Braums/Loves intersections. This takes place in Guthrie, OK.
Children who attend Gideons Elementary School on Mary St have no safe option for crossing Metropolitan Pkwy, the closest intersection to the school heading West.
3 boys were killed in a auto crash at the intersection of county road 24 and county road I, in Cuming County, Nebraska.
At this intersection you come over a hill and there is the intersection with a stop sign. We are trying to get Cuming County to put up a stop ahead sign. They tell us there is no need.
Many people say they have ran that stop sign because they don't know it is there until drivers top the hill.
On October 3, 2006, an innocent bystander was hit by a car, and seriously injured at the intersection of North Frontage Road and College Street, in New Haven, CT.
This incident is just one example of a larger pedestrian safety problem. Unfortunately, accidents and "close-calls" at this intersection are not rare. The New Haven Department of Traffic and Parking reported 23 accidents at North Frontage Road and College Street in 2003 alone, the most recent year for which data is available. (A link to an article written by a local journalist about the same issue is above.)
In response to the dozens of accidents that have taken place at the North Frontage-College intersection, the Department's apathy toward fixing the problem, and given that all adjacent intersections indeed have basic pedestrian safety features in place, we propose the following petition.

There are 3 cities meeting within 2 miles on one road. County Road 17. They are Excelsior, Shorewood and Chanhassen.
This road will be extending for several miles to become a connecting road to a new Highway 212. The Speed limits on this road are simply illogical. Toward the south side of the road where the road has a median and turning lanes it is 45 miles per hour. To the North side it rapidly changes from 50 mph down to 45 mph down to 30 mph entering another highway called Highway 7.
Where Excelsior is there are many homes that are close together and has driveways to what was for many years a low traffic road. Now that this highway is coming in the travelers are driving on it like it is a highway even though it is at Lake Lucy Road and Carver Beach Road only two lanes with poor visual sightways for people seeing it from the cross streets.
They are easily in a blind spot unless they drive over a crosswalk area for walkers and bicyclists to also use so they end up partially into the intersection in order to see easily cars on the main road. I avoided a 5 car collision by about about one foot of out car. Experience with this intersection I am afraid to even cross it when the coast is clear as some car might come bounding down it at 70 miles per hour.
There are several residential streets and driveways in that area like in Excelsior though fewer. The County upgraded a Police Officer to a more expensive car to give tickets. But I see the need is greater for putting a traffic light at either Lake Lucy Road or Carver Beach Road to allow for safe entrance and exit out of the road for drivers including many who have children they need to take back and forth to school.
A Stop sign to reduce the amount of speeding.
Many memebers of the Cheswolde community of Baltimore City, are distressed over the amount of speeding in our neighborhoods. The following do herby petition the Department of Transportation of Baltimore City to erect a three-way stop sign, at the intersection of Hanson avenue and Woodcrest avenue.
Citizens of the Camden School District, as well as employees and visitors of the Camden Central School District residing outside of those areas, petition to have a traffic light installed at the intersection of State Rt 13 and Florence Hill Rd in Camden, NY.
Concerned citizens of the school district would like to see a traffic light installed at the intersection of Florence Hill Rd. and State Route 13, in Camden, New York.
We, the homeowners residing on 1200 block of Elm Avenue in City of Glendale, California are strongly urging the city authorities to consider adding a stop signs on the Glenwood Rd and Elm Avenue intersection. Currently there is only one set of stop signs for Elm Avenue. Glenwood Rd. lacks one.
Every day the residents, and especially others not familiar with this intersection, face a difficult and hazardous situation.
The view from Elm Avenue to the cross traffic on Glenwood Rd. is obstracted.
The 85% of the time parked vehicles on Glenwood Rd. are too close to to the curve of the curb. For some reason, the parking has been allowed almost to the edge of the curve.
The undersigned would attest to the fact that in order to see the cross traffic one has to pass the rear of the parked vehicles, and by this time one is almost into the Glenwood Rd. Something needs to be done as soon as possible before something tragic happens at this crossing. Crossing this street is almost like a 'catch up' game. This has been proven to be very hazardous based on our experience, and numerouse accidents we've witnessed.
It has been noted that the City of Wilmington has plans to remove the traffic signal at the intersection of Oleander Drive and Hawthorne Road.
The residents of Kedron Hills would like to see a 4-way stop sign at the intersection of Astoria Lane, Euclid Court and Creston Hill. This would slow down speeders and help insure the safety of our kids.
This intersection is one of the busiest school bus stops in the neighborhood and installing two more stop signs on Astoria would greatly deminish the probablity of accidents and or fatalities invloving our children.

Eight years ago the plans for the Wall Township Hidden View development was introduced. The plans proposed access from Cherry & Red Bud lanes in the Ramtown section of Howell. The Howell Council took action against this proposel. The NJ Supreme Court ruled in favor of allowing access to Hidden View from Cherry & Red Bud lanes. Plan B was to build a bridge over the Garden State Parkway which proved to be to daunting. The new plan calls for access to Hidden View via a new $750,000.00 "T" intersection at Jacob Road in the Forest Ridge development.
This plan is a result of complaints from the residents in and around the Cherry & Red Bud Lane area. While no one wants the access road in their area, to move it to another area is just shifting the burden. The Cherry & Red Bud Lane area has numerous alternate routes to Newtons Corner Road. The Forest Ridge area has extremely limited access to Newton Corner Road for vehicles from 177 new homes.
This "T" intersection if built will pose a serious threat to safety and well being of the children and all residents in the Forest Ridge development. Direct access to Newton Corner road or another main road should be found. Builing a new access road that funnels the traffic from 177 new homes trough ANY existing residential development must not be allowed.
We are requesting that a four-way Stop Sign to irrected at the intersections of Thames Street and Ann Street, Ingersoll, Ontario.
It is a very dangerous intersection for crossing, and confusing for both drivers and pedestrians. This intersection would benefit a Four-Way Stop Sign for many reasons, most importantly the safety of our neighbourhood and school children crossing at this intersection.
The completed T-Rex and Light-rail project including a new light rail hub on Louisiana and south Washington street will have immediate impact on auto and pedestrian traffic directly impacting the saftey and quality of life of the residents of the 1300 blk od south Washing street. A perposial has beeb put forth by Robert Dorroh from CDOT to construct a traffic diversion island in the South intersection of S. Washington Street and Louisian to discourage neighboorhood access via South Washington Street. If this diversion were constructed, the only way to access the 1300 blk of S. Washington immediatly South of Louisiana would be from Arkansan on the South or a right turn from eastbound Louisiana. Traffic exiting Washington onto Louisiana would only be able to turn right and proceed eastbound.
This petition is about changing the traffic situation at the intersection of Riverside Dr. and SR 47.
When trying to turn left onto SR 47 and there are vehicles parked in the turning lane it impairs visibility of oncoming traffic on SR 47. Therfore, forcing you to pull up a little to see the oncoming traffic. There is a semi-tractor trailer, school bus, or a Chevy S-10 pewter pick-up with a white trailer hooked up to it 90% of the time. I would appreciate your support in this matter, so we can make that intersection more safe for everyone.
Citizens for a Better IGH opposes a proposed Wal-Mart at the corner of Cahill Avenue and Concord Blvd. While IGH needs more retail, restaurants, office space, and other venues, a singular warehouse-style building is not an appropriate use for the Concord/Cahill site.
Throughout history people with common sense have suffered as a consequence of the actions of stupid people. It has also been known that stupid people have suffered due to their own stupid actions.
People who decide to play football while attempting to ski; people who like to fall asleep while they are cooking; people who don't know how to punch a proper voting ballot; people who leave their engine running while they are trying to fill the gas tank - all these people have caused unnecessary suffering and distress in one way or another.
If stupidity is eradicated then so will unnecessary stress and suffering. The economy will boom.
It is necessary to eradicate stupidity. By doing so, some of the world population will inevitably be destroyed - but that can only be a good thing - as it will keep the planet from over-populating.
Please support this nobel cause. Think of your children's future. Your future.
In the recent years the intersection at Ridgland Ave. & Sauk Trail Rd. seem to be an unsafe area. There is a definete need for some sort of traffic control at this intersection. The residents in this area feel that once the roadway improvements are complete the percentage of traffic accidents will increase. Therefore, the residents are requesting that a measure of traffic control be placed at the said location.
There have been numerous automobile accidents at the intersection of Thelma Drive and Judson Road in Olmos Park. Installation of a four-way stop sign would greatly diminish the probability of further accidents and/or fatalities.
