Don't Put Double-Yellow Lines on Newtown Neighborhood Roads!

This petition had 56 supporters

The Town of Newtown, CT Highway Department has begun painting double-yellow lines on neighborhood roads, including New Lebbon Rd and many others!  This is an imminent danger to pedestrians, bikers, and the general wellness of our community.  A double-yellow line doesn’t enable motorists to safely pass on narrow neighborhood streets. Studies show motorists drive faster on double-yellow roads (vs. single or non-painted), cost significant taxpayer money to apply, erodes property value, reduces town revenues, and negatively impacts rural character. 

This is a petition for the Police Commission and Highway Department to immediately issue a stay of proceeding for double-yellow line painting on Newtown neighborhood roads.   The inconsistency of road line application across Newtown must be addressed by a community task force prior to moving forward.
