Pedestrian Safety in New Haven, CT
Petition Background (Preamble):
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.
A formal, citywide assessment of intersection-safety should follow, inclusive of its conclusions being released in a public report.
