King's Ridge Resident started this petition to Governor Gov. Polis and

Crosswalks with flashing warning lights for vehicles should flash RED instead of yellow. We petition for this because vehicles in many cases tend to ignore or to not see the yellow flashing lights. This puts pedestrians in danger of being hit by a vehicle at a crosswalk.

We suggest traffic engineers layer in pedestrian safety in all engineering and traffic studies.

Tell the Governor to initiate legislation with the state house and state senate to make pedestrian warning beacons red instead of yellow.

PEDESTRIANS MATTER-Make Colorado Walkable Again

Slow down and be prepared to stop when turning or otherwise entering a crosswalk.
Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and stop well back from the cross-walk to give other vehicles an opportunity to see the crossing pedestrians so they can stop too.
Never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. There may be people crossing that you can’t see.
