Traffic Safety Initiative
This petition had 235 supporters
Earl Haig Secondary School is home to over 2000 students. Each day, over 500 teachers and students jaywalk on Doris Avenue to grab something from Wendy's, Dollarama, or access the North York Subway Station.
Throughout the past three years, the Special Projects committee of Leaders Collective have always designated two days per year known as the "Crosswalk Safety Initiative" where volunteers hold up signs and encourage their peers to walk down the road and cross at a traffic light. However, we have continuously gotten the same response:
"Do something about it. Talk to someone at City Hall or something."
You know what? This year we are.
With your help, our message will hopefully reach the city councillor John Fillion, who may establish a "Pedestrian Protection Crossing Study." If the results are positive, the city will most likely install a 30km/h signage on Doris- or come up with another solution to ease traffic congestion and protect the jaywalkers from getting hit.
Although this idea seems far-fetched, we have the support of Earl Haig's administration, along with our trustee Alexander Brown and superintendent Linda Curtis. Therefore, as a member of Earl Haig, your voice matters in this.
