Extend the school zone, and increase police patrol near Oakdale Heights Elementary School

This petition had 123 supporters

Oakdale Heights Elementary is a wonderful school that serves over 350 students in the area. The main road to Oakdale Heights Elementary School is through Maple St., and the residents in the area as well as parents of children who attend Oakdale Heights, are becoming increasingly concerned over the amount of drivers who speed in this area. 

The National Highway safety administration said that "Each year, more than 100 children in the U.S. are killed while walking and biking to and from school, and more than 25,000 are injured." (NHSA, 2014)

Our goal in this matter is to enact change that prevents a death or injury. We are asking the City of Dallas, Oregon to address this issue by extending the school zone, putting up school zone warnings, and increasing patrol during peak hours. 

While we have had police officers patrol this area, as well as temporary radar speed signs, this has not been enough to deter drivers from speeding.
