I am writing this petition as a request to the Department of Transportation, from the residents of whitestone. For the last 15 or 20 years the intersection of 17th road and murray street has been a huge hazard as far as accidents. There has been numerous videos fowarded to the DOT of the accidents over the years. Thanksgiving night 2017 an elderly gentleman was hit by a man who blew the stop sign on murray st and severly injured him. Not even 2 weeks later another individual ran the stop sign causing another serious accident putting one vehicle almost into the house. This request should have been processed along time ago, being that saint lukes church & school. As well as junior high school 194 are both down the block from the intersection. Kids walk by and ride bicycles here daily as well as our whitestone residents, not including all the driving traffic from the schools. We can not stand here and let these accidents happen any more. Let me ask you this, is it going to take the death of an individual to finally have something done about this intersection on 17th road and murray street.
