The city of Dearborn needs to install school zone signs!

This petition made change with 299 supporters!

Since its inception in 2005, Riverside Academy - West has educated roughly 600 students per year in the East Dearborn area. Unfortunately, when the final bell rings and they are released from school, many of the children are forced to cross Schaefer Rd., a busy, four-lane road. The closest crosswalk is over 600 feet away at the corner of Haggerty St. and Schaefer Rd, but many of the students often visit Hemlock Park, which is less than a block away in the opposite direction from the crosswalk. There are currently no signs alerting motorists a school is present nor are there any crosswalks for the students to safely and expediently travel to Hemlock Park. Last year, one of our students was struck by a car and was fortunate enough to walk away with minor injuries. However, two Fordson High School students were not quite as fortunate. Two students were struck and sustained severe injuries. This problem can easily be corrected by restructuring the crosswalks and stoplights to accommodate the safety of the students. Students should not have to worry about being struck by a car on their walk to and from school. What this road needs is a crosswalk and school-zone signs alerting motorists to drive 25 MPH during appropriate hours. Petitions have been made in the past and nothing was solved. Please, sign this petition to make walking to school safe for these students.
