Stop dangerous driving in Burbank's residential neighborhoods

This petition had 271 supporters

Do we have to wait for a tragedy to happen? Speed racing has become a safety threat in the Burbank residential neighborhoods, in particular the hill section above Glenoaks. There are numerous schools in this area, a middle school, grammar school and Burbank High School, and the racers are usually speeding up and down the hills after school hours, when children are out. It has gotten to the point where many residents are unable to go for a walk for fear that someone running a stop sign will hit them. The problem has been growing quickly in the last few years. A recent incident has been reported where one car actually aimed itself at a pedestrian, threatening her! We, the residents of Burbank are asking the City of Burbank to install speed bumps, and increase police surveillance in order for our neighborhoods to feel safe again. Below is a list the problems we are all seeing, hearing and feeling on a daily basis:

1)  Speeding, dangerous, reckless, and aggressive driving

2)  Street racing in residential neighborhoods and on major streets

3)  Loud, illegally modified vehicles

4)  Vehicles without license plates and/or vehicles with illegally tinted windows that make it virtually impossible to identify violators

The signers of this petition are asking the Mayor, the current and future City Council Members, the City Manager, and the Burbank Traffic Commission to provide the BPD, the Burbank Unified School District (BUSD), and the Burbank Public Works the resources required to tackle and solve this problem.

Please sign and pass on this petition if you live in the City of Burbank, CA, and would like to have safer streets for your children, your family, and yourself. Sign this petition if you would like to improve the quality of life in your neighborhood and reduce noise pollution. If you would like to feel safe walking or biking in your neighborhood and for your kids to be able to walk and bike safely around their schools and in the parks, we ask that you support this petition by signing it and passing it on to neighbors, parents, co-workers, and friends who live in the City of Burbank for the benefit of all who live in our beautiful city.

Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation. We also thank the City of Burbank officials in advance for listening to their constituents.
