Urge Villanova Public Safety to Install Extra Safety Measures in the I-1 Parking Garage

This petition had 745 supporters

Over the past year and since the opening of the new Ithan I-1 Parking Garage, many accidents have happened. In the garage to be specific. These accidents are minor, but costly for college students like us.

The traffic is horrible as well. Cars whip around the corners without even stopping or even looking. Some students are just waiting to get hit in their cars and are even scared to walk back to my car thinking that they might get hit as well.

We want to suggest the possible installation of rounded reflection mirrors at each intersection and turn so that drivers can see other oncoming traffic. In addition, we are wondering if more security cameras can be installed to help with tracking down drivers who hit other cars and do a hit and run.

Finally, we are wondering about electric cars. Electric cars pay an extra $50 to park in the garage. Most mornings when we are driving into the parking garage and have to park on the 5th floor due to the influx of cars, we see that both spots closest to the charging stations are taken by non-electric cars on all floors.

There are students who drive an electric car and somedays they have nowhere to charge their car and their battery is run down to the point that they cannot make it home and so they have to leave their car overnight to charge and seek out a ride to school in the morning.

There should be markings - either on the walls, the ground, or both - that state that that spot is reserved for an electric car.

PLEASE sign this petition and show that you are as worried as we are about the situation in the garage!
