The 4-way traffic intersection on Holly and Maple Drive at the University of South Florida currently has three crosswalk signals placed at three sides of the intersection.
However, one more crosswalk signal should be added between the Cypress B dormitory and the Greek Village crosswalk in order to improve pedestrian safety and to complete the crosswalk signal project that was started.
Other areas around the campus, for example, the intersection between Holly Drive and Laurel Drive have four crosswalk signals placed by its crosswalks. Therefore, to be fair the intersection between Maple Drive and Holly Drive should have four crosswalk signals too.
In addition, pedestrian safety is an important issue that concerns all citizens of Florida. Florida, and three other states, California, Texas, and New York have been recorded to make up 41% of all pedestrian fatalities in the United States.
In order to improve pedestrian safety we should implement crosswalks in Florida in areas where they are needed such as at the traffic intersection of Holly and Maple Drive.
We, the undersigned, asks the USF student Government to help us implement a crosswalk signal between Cypress B and Greek Village crosswalk.
The Crosswalk Signal Needed between Cypress B and Greek Village petition to University of South Florida Student Government was written by Karlen Talbert and is in the category Roads & Transport at GoPetition.
