Laura Wood started this petition to NCDOT and

We are living in a small town with up and coming businesses in our downtown. Without warning, our stoplights became 4 way stops. In doing this, traffic has increased tremendously and its NOT safe for pedestrians, bikers, joggers, or kids. Along with safety issues, most, if not all the businesses downtown are suffering. Sales have dropped 30%-60% based on what we have been told by the businesses. We are in the biggest shopping season of the year and we have no shoppers. They do not understand the traffic patterns and they can't be delayed as much as they have been recently. The road work on I-77 has made matters worse. Now semis and large vehicles are being detoured onto main street. They cannot stop and go like a regular car. The stop signs are just not working. We have been told by several people that they will not be back due to these traffic conditions. It is killing our economy. We have had a public meeting, but we need more support. The NCDOT feels that this is safer when it is clearly not the case. The Mayor sides with NCDOT and the town officials wont comment and tell us not to comment or be negative. It's difficult when your lively hood depends on foot traffic and tourism. Please sign the petition to save our downtown businesses and make our streets safe again.
