0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

For anyone who has the need to cross Mason Street in Newport VIC, you will know how dangerous it can be. There is one pedestrian crossing at Newport Train Station, and then another near the junction with Mirls Street. That's it for at least another kilometre. The crossing near Mirls Street is a staggered Zebra crossing, which used to have a speed bump on either side, until one was removed some time ago. The amount of times I have experienced or seen near misses are many. Tonight a pedestrian was knocked down by a car driver who was exceeding the speed limit and not paying attention. Newport residents need signal-controlled crossings operated by pedestrians. Either Pelican, Puffin or Toucan Crossings, before there is a fatal accident.
