SPEAK AS ONE: Help ensure the safety of our families at the corners of Madison & W. Lake

This petition made change with 1,446 supporters!

On April 26th, 2018, at the corner of West Lake & Madison Ave, there was ANOTHER horrific car accident, this time involving a car and a pedestrian. We have just learned the pedestrian, a young woman, has succumbed to her injuries. Up until now, it appeared property damage was the only casualty of drivers going too fast on West Lake or drivers failing to observe the stop sign or misjudging the intersection then proceeding without caution. WE NEED TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION and appeal to the Rahway Mayor, Raymond Giacobbe and the honorable members of our Town Council to implore them to improve this intersection (to begin with) and various others in Rahway as the price paid that day was too high. 

We would like to request that the residents of Rahway sign this petition in order to secure changes to ensure that no further loss of life occurs, no other family grieves and that our family members are safe and return home to us. 

We are proposing that at a minimum, speed bumps be installed to gently remind drivers that the speed limit on this thoroughfare is 25mph. Further, we would like to make West Lake & Madison a 4-way stop. This would ensure drivers maintain a safe speed from St. Georges Ave through this area and maintain the posted limit. Additionally, we request a higher police presence on this street (and the surrounding streets as well). This alone will caution drivers that if the speed limit is not obeyed they WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for their speeding.This will not only serve to bring a higher level of safety to the area but also raise the revenue in Rahway Municipal Court when offenders are summoned.
