Please sign your support of this petition to demand that the Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to improve the intersection of David Cox / Lakeview Rds. and Old Statesville Rd. (hereafter known as "The Intersection") Charlotte, NC 28269 by 1. adding a four-way red/yellow/green traffic signal; 2. adding additional traffic improvements to The Intersection as determined by a new traffic count, factoring into the count the recent development. 

Let's take action by signing this petition to help prevent a serious accident or death at The Intersection.  

  1. The Intersection is consistently one of the highest accident rate intersections in Mecklenburg County. See the Charlotte Observer article naming The Intersection as the 9th highest accident rate intersection in Mecklenburg County. 
  2. The Intersection borders Charlotte City Councils Districts 2 & 4.  Charlotte City Council District 2 Representative is Carlenia Ivory (email: civory@charlottenc.gov) ; District 4 Representative is Gregory Phipps (email: gaphipps@charlottenc.gov).  At-Large Representative James "Smuggie" Mitchell lives near The Intersection (email: james.mitchell@charlottenc.gov); The Intersection is with Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, District 1, Jim Puckett (email: jim.puckett@mecklenburgcountync.gov)
  3. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Zoning Committee (Planning) has approved and allowed for increased commercial traffic at The Intersection since 2013 and has NOT improved the two-way single lane roads, nor improved The Intersection.  Since 2013 Planning has approved new building construction and expansion of commercial businesses utilizing The Intersection for many businesses including, but not limited to - Lowe's Corporation; Tire Wholesale Warehouse; Spectra Metal Sales; Adams Electric; Perforated Metal Plus; Atlantic Forklift Service; Preferred Pump; Coca-Cola Bottling Customer Care and others.
  4. CDOT has stated that all roads at The Intersection are NCDOT responsibility and out of scope for CDOT and directing all concerns or requests to the NCDOT.  Both CDOT and NCDOT have been unresponsive to correcting the accident prone nature of The Intersection since 2010.  CDOT has listed The Intersection as "Intersection improvement project traffic signal project funded" since 2016, still no traffic light has been installed, not begun to date (Dec. 1, 2017).

Thank you
