Make Highway 210 Safe for Pedestrians

Two and a half months ago, my family became devastated after my sister was killed crossing at the intersection of Kerby Hill/Livingston Road and Highway 210. We believe she could possibly still be here had the intersection she crossed at been safer. My family, Councilman Obie Patterson of Prince George‘s County, Maryland, and the Maryland State Highway Administration strongly agree the crosswalks are in very poor condition. There is a lack of lighting and poorly detailed walkways at not only the crosswalk she was struck at, but also at several other parts of Highway 210. We want to point out that 210 runs through a suburban area, and that the people that live in the areas surrounding the highway, such as Accokeek, Oxon Hill, and Fort Washington, have to cross this dangerous highway on a regular basis. Nobody should have to walk across this road in the poor state its crosswalks are. The total deaths on the highway in the last decade exceeds 60 people. That’s too many lives lost, and the first step to preventing another family from suffering the grief and lost of a lost loved one, is to work to make our crosswalks in Prince George’s County, Maryland safer. Please sign our petition in support of making it safer for our communities to cross 210 in well lit crosswalks, clearly marked walk ways and any other advanced safety measures possible. Thank you!
