West Lane Road in Lodi, California is a road commonly used for commuters who live in either Lodi or Stockton California. It’s a long, wide road, with a speed limit of 55 miles per hour. There are no stop signs, traffic lights, or street lights on this road for miles and with that being said, this road can be extremely hazardous at night. Although there is a raised island separating the two sides of the road, it has not been completely effective in preventing accidents that can and have happened on this road.

On the night of June 14, 2013, two of my Aunts, Jane Labuni (56) and Rosemarie Taasin (54) were returning home to Stockton from their workplace in Lodi. My aunts were driving on West Lane Road at around the regular speed limit of 55 MPH. Another driver who was going to Lodi veered off of their side of the road, crossed over a raised island and collided with the car that my two aunts were driving in. This led to the untimely death of the unnamed driver and the death of my aunt, Jane Labuni, who was sitting in the passenger seat, while also leaving my other Aunt, Rosemarie Taasin with critical injuries.

In order to prevent another tragedy like this from occurring, I am reaching out to all of you: residents of Lodi, Stockton and the San Joaquin Valley, to sign this petition which I hope Mayor Alan Nakanishi of Lodi, CA, and whomever else it may concern, will be able to see in order to put up street lights on West Lane Road in Lodi, CA for the safety of late night drivers.

Many lives have been lost on this road, and with the help and signatures from all of you, maybe we can do something to prevent another untimely death.

      I have heard of too many accidents happening on this road and it's about time for some change to help protect the lives of drivers and provide safety.

      Because when we went there for a vacation that street is so dark at night.

      I am a relative of Elisha Tassin and this calls my attention. I have seen the road myself during the night and it is a quite scare to drive on a long road without street lights. I say approve street lights on West Lane.
