Community of Highland Park against Road Diet and inputting Bike Lanes on North Figueroa

This petition had 697 supporters

Vision Zero is attempting to implement a Road Diet ( the removal of one car lane ) and inputting  Bike  lanes on N Figueroa in Highland Park. This Petition is to let Vision Zero know that the community of Highland Park is against this project. The removal of a car lane on  N. Figueroa will slow down Emergency response time for the Fire department and Police department in which will become a safety issue for the residents of Highland Park.

We the undersigned stakeholders of Highland Park commuters, businesses, area residents, pedestrians - strongly object to the removal of the car lanes on North Figueroa in Highland Park

The road diet and bike lanes will cause traffic congestion, become a safety hazard due to confusion and drivers' impatience, causes drivers to search for alternate routes home and work, increases vehicle spillover into the residential neighborhood (which creates SAFETY HAZARDS for local residents and children),as local residents choose alternate routes to avoid the gridlock that previously wasn't there.  

Councilman Cedillo and his staff have made it clear they are against the road diet proposed on N Figueroa. The Fire Department and Police department have both stated removing a car lane on Figueroa will slow down response time for emergency vehicles. One second of delayed emergency response is unacceptable for our residents. Vision Zero will be held accountable and liable if a death occurs to one of our residents due to delayed response time for a emergency vehicle if the road diet and the removal of a car lane is implemented


Please sign the petition if you are against the removal of a car lane and inputting bike lanes on N. Figueroa in Highland Park
