Safety crossing guard on Lincoln Blvd.

This petition had 645 supporters

The parents of children attending Broadway Elementary in Venice are very concerned with the safety our children while crossing the streets near school (Lincoln Boulevard, Broadway Street & California Avenue). Lincoln is one of the busiest streets in Los Angeles and hundreds of young students and parents cross it and the adjacent streets each day getting to and from school. 

Across the city, many elementary schools have at least one crossing guard at busy intersections to ensure the safe passage of the young students and parents, but our school does not even have ONE despite our high traffic location. Very often, rush hour commuters come close to striking the pedestrians as they cross.  Many parents have had first hand experiences of almost getting run over by cars while walking with their kids. Drivers often speed to attempt to run red lights and/or are simply not paying attention as they speed past the children. It is an extremely stressful environment for those that walk our kids to school each day.

We should not have to fear for our lives while taking our kids to school on a daily basis! Please help us sign this petition to urge key decision-makers (LAUSD's Office Of Environmental Safety and the LADOT) to come together and rectify this safety issue by granting the appropriate sanctions, funding and staffing for crossing guards at the relevant intersections of Lincoln Blvd., Broadway St. and California Ave. during the school year. Safety of the children should be everyone's number one priority. Thank you for your support.
