deanna wickliff started this petition to Newark clerk of council, newark street department

I would like to see a safer way for our students across our city to walk to school. As we know the busing for Newark city schools is limited. My daughter (Leilani Schmidt) being one of the many children that walk to and from school was struck by a vehicle crossing cedar st (SR 79 north). Now this was no fault of my daughters or the driver. Neither one seen the other.  Which brought up the point that there are no safe ways across cedar or many main roads for children walking to school. I believe this needs to change. Our children are our future. And I believe keeping them safe is the most important thing. My petition is to have crosswalks, crossing guards etc for these children. I believe that the city of newark needs to put crosswalks and pedestrian walk ways around all schools and major roadways across the city. We seen them do it downtown and it def helps when it comes to the safety of pedestrians. I believe this will help all our students make it home safe everyday.
