Relocate parking sign at 14 St E to avoid more accidents

Approximately 800 University students and their families with children live in McEwon park. When they leave McEwon park by car and want to go straight to Leslie Ave, there is a major visibility problem. If vehicles are parked at the right edge of 14th St E, then it is not possible to see the vehicles coming from the right side of 14th St E. 

Please have a look at the photograph (shown in top of this petition) taken on Nov 28th, 2013 at 12:38pm while sitting inside a car when cars were parked at right edge of 14th St E. It is not possible to see the vehicles coming from right of 14th St E. 

This is a scary situation and it becomes extremely difficult to cross 14th St E and to go ahead. On Nov 22nd, an accident happened at this spot because the cars coming from right side were not visible due the vehicles parked on the right edge of 14th St E. In the accident, the car was hit by a microbus from right side and the car was totally damaged. Two passengers were injured. Similar visibility problem also happens when entering McEwon park straight from Leslie Ave if vehicles are parked at the edges of 14th St E. 

We want to draw attention to the authority to solve this problem as soon as possible. One possible solution could be to move the "parking" sign far more right. Another solution could be to make the intersection as "4 way Stop".
