Save lives on Farm to Market Road

This petition had 1,478 supporters

We need a roundabout at the intersection of Farm to Market Road and Josh Wilson Road in order to save lives in Skagit County. 

Karen Wolf's recent and tragic death occurred at this location, which is known for deadly accidents. The relatively recent addition of the turning lanes creates a critical blindspot for westbound traffic on Josh Wilson Road, and it caused Karen to think she was clear to cross the road when she was not. Karen lived just down Josh Wilson Road in Bay View and she was no stranger to the fact this was a dangerous intersection. Her death, and the death of others at this intersection, can be blamed on a county that has disregarded the need for slower speeds on a very busy rural road. We need something to change, not just in memory of Karen, but for all the drivers that are still alive and using these roads. 

It is time for Skagit County to stop letting these deadly accidents occur and act. Improve the safety of this intersection and add a roundabout. Please help us save lives.
