A crosswalk/yield sign at Tobias/Walnut to make school arrival/dismissal safer

Stacy Wittenberg started this petition to Saucon Valley School District

My child attends Saucon Valley Elementary. Both morning drop off and afternoon pick up have changed this year to the back entrance of the school.  Therefore the majority of students are crossing the street at Tobias and Walnut in order to enter or leave school. The safety issue with this is that...

1. Parked cars obstruct the view when looking both ways.
2. Some cars (like anywhere) drive too fast in a school zone.
3. There is no crosswalk or crossing guard indicating a need for more cautious driving.

In the beginning of the year, administration told the parents that the school is responsible for student safety until they arrive home. Bearing this in mind, an effort must be made to make this a safer place to cross the street.  A crosswalk with a yield sign (like the Rail Trail has) seems like it could remedy this issue.

Thank you.
