Tracey Hill started this petition to Oakland Road Comission Oakland Road Comission and

Children walking to school from the opposite side of Pontiac trail to Millennium, Centennial Middle schools or to the school buses, cross Pontiac Trail at this point to get across the road. These children are still developing and often due to their belief they are invincible cross the road and narrowly avoid getting hit by oncoming cars. This currently is there only option as the road is extremely busy. They do have the option to walk to the lights at Nine Mile and Pontiac trail, but for a number of reason most of the children choose not to do this. There is also currently a crossing at the point we want upgraded, but in general the cars on Pontiac trail are going too fast to notice this and the road is too congested for this to be noticed. The speed limit also needs t be reduced at school times. We want our children to be safe and to be able to walk to school without risking their lives.
