Make walking home from school safe.

This petition had 161 supporters

Hi my name is Lakeisha, I am starting this petition because my 13 year old sister was hit by a car crossing an intersection on her way home from school. The intersection is located on 441 and NW 207TH st near Andover Middle School in Miami Gardens, Florida. The intersection is fairly large and is extremely busy during after school hours. Majority of the students live in a complex near by called Coconut cay/Andover just like my sister . The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders have to cross the busy intersection to get to their home. The middle school consist of a vast amount of students who live within Coconut cay and have to cross that same intersection everyday sometimes twice a day, in the mornings and afternoons. There are no crossing guards, no school zone signs ,or any bus routes that contribute to the students safety while crossing this busy intersection. Fortunately my little sister suffered none fatal injures. Placing some type of safety aid within that intersection can help prevent fatal injuries. Let’s help make walking home from school safer for these children.
