Traffic Lights in Beausejour Manitoba Canada

This petition had 266 supporters

In this small town of only a few thousand people, we have no traffic lights.
Yet, we have a very busy Main Street (Park Avenue) where many people a day travel upon this road. We have atleast 3 major intersections that in my opinion should have traffic lights.
The first would be down First Street and Park Avenue. During many days, I find my self waiting for 5-10 minutes before I can proceed, thus making it hard for people on first street to turn left, go straight, or even make a right turn.
The second place to have lights would be on 5th Street. This is where our high school is, and this would make life easier for our school bus drivers. It can feel like it will take days before they can finally turn due to all the traffic. Oakbank Manitoba has traffic lights near there school intersection and it's very successful for them.
The third place to have lights in our community would be the intersection of where highway 215 and highway 302 ends, which most people know as the Tim Hortons Intersection. This is the most dangerous intersection in this town and in fact maybe in this province. If we put lights here I believe it will make our community a much safer place especially for all of the tourist traffic in the summer.
I call out the Town of Beausejour, and the Province of Manitoba to figure out a way to bring traffic lights into our town. I hope this petition and signatures will see that us as a community needs this to grow and to be safe. It would help keep ours kids, moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas and etc more safe in our town, and away from danger instead of into it. I don't believe this is a silly or a stupid request, I just believe in the safety of our people as best as we can get them.
