Austin Luskin started this petition to Town of Exeter Planning Board

We live in a beautiful town, however we also live at the intersection of many major country roads.  As a result, we have a great deal of speeding on our local roads.  This speeding combined with incomplete off-road walkways has placed pedestrians and car traffic at odds leading to dangerous situations particularly for our children and pets. 

This has been a common problem in recent years and fortunately solutions to this problem are possible through the creation of more “complete streets” which allow for safe ways to share the roadways.  Complete streets concepts include both increased walkways/paths for pedestrians and bikers as well as traffic claming measure to reduce speeding.  

Examples of traffic calming measure include but are not limited to the following: 

- WIDENING SIDEWALKS/NARROWING STREETS AND TRAFFIC LANES

- BULBS – CHOKERS – NECKDOWNS

- ROUNDABOUTS – TRAFFIC CIRCLES

- RAISED MEDIANS – SPEED TABLES, AND CUSHIONS

- TIGHT CORNER CURBS

- DIVERTERS

The goal of these measures is not to stop or inhibit traffic but rather to reduce speeding to create a safer community for our families.

By signing this petition, you are helping to build community support to implement traffic calming measures to investigate and implement methods to reduce speeding on our local roads as well as expand or local off road walkways and sidewalks to improve the safe walkability of our town.
