We the community of Wheatland, CA have witnessed in the months of sept-oct 2019 4 bad car accidents at this location. 2 of the accidents resulted in severe injuries another was a fatal accident taking the life of a 17 yr old wheatland high school senior. She was involved in the community, her church, drama and music dept. and loved by all who had the opportunity to meet her. 

This location is a 2 lane hwy (1 in each direction- south and north) and a speed limit of 55mph from 65mph shortly before there. Cars are going by Oakley Lane at 65-70 mph leaving no response time to avoid a accident.  From forty mile road into the town of Wheatland is a regular accident occurrence that is very preventable with a signal being placed at Oakley lane and highway 65. This will force people to slow down/stop, reducing their speed after stopping as they enter the town. It will also allow cars turning in to highway 65 from Oakley lane to enter the highway safely. There has been a decade or more of accidents at Oakley/65 and this will continue until our tax payer dollars are used to prevent this by installing a long over due traffic signal there.  Even more needed as there is a greater amount of vehicles traveling this highway to get to and from the newly opened Hard Rock Casino on Forty mile road just west of highway 65.

This community and the family's of the accident victims have gone through enough pain,  heart ache, and financial loss in a month's time to last a life time. 

We the communities that live and work in this area with our families want a solution, which would be a traffic signal being placed. An for it to be expedited to prevent any further accidents, severe injuries or fatalities.
