Stevenson is not a highway!!

This petition had 151 supporters

My family has been almost hit way too many times!!  Drivers use Stevenson lane between York Road and Charles Street as a bypass for 695.  While I realize that this is an emergency route for GBMC and St. Joseph Medical Center, something needs to change. This is a community with young children, and this road was never set up to be as heavily trafficked as it is today.  With keeping in mind that is an emergency route, I am proposing a decrease from 30 MPH to 25 MPH.  This should hopefully prevent some through traffic, while allowing an emergency vehicle to go through.  They have reduced the speed to 25 MPH on Stevenson between York and Hillen, but us with street parking have gotten the shaft.  I can't begin to tell you the amount of times I thought my wife, dog, or others could of gotten hit while getting in or out of our car, due to the aggressive drivers.  Our children are becoming more and more independent, and we should protect them from aggressive drivers.
