Provide Crossing Guards for GPS

This petition made change with 559 supporters!


With the end of a 3-year amalgamation process with Victoria, Colborne, and Holmesville Public Schools, Goderich Public School has had an obviously substantial increase with its student population and number of faculty. Consequently, this amalgamation has also brought a substantial increase to the pedestrian and vehicular traffic on the streets of Bennett, Blake and Eldon, which has created great risk for student pedestrians and drivers on a daily basis; many close calls between child pedestrians and vehicles have been noted.

This large amount of GPS student pedestrians, as well as student pedestrians of the nearby high school, the heavy congestion of vehicles dropping children off at the school and nearby parking lot, an influx of school bus traffic, and time-stressed motorists have made the crossings extremely dangerous; particularly the intersection of Bennett and Eldon Street.  This demonstrates clear evidence of the need for immediate placement of crossing guards.

Why wait for something potentially tragic to happen when we can prevent it! In order to secure the safety of our children, please expedite this request and provide crossing guards for the intersections of Eldon and Bennett Street, and Eldon and Blake Street at Goderich Public School.
