Kaitlin Battiste started this petition to Willistown Township and

The area that currently resides on PA Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in Willistown Township in front of Teikoku Restaurant has been consistently used as a Septa bus stop because there are none within a walkable range from the restaurant. It is not a safe waiting area for Septa’s passengers, nor is it entirely visible to the moving vehicles passing by at 55+ mph. At this point, a proper bus stop should be put in place.

The speed limit on this busy section of Rt. 3 is 55mph, however cars are constantly recklessly driving over the speed limit as well as weaving in and out of lanes at any given time of the day. 

The area used to catch the bus is used frequently by Teikoku’s employees who commute to and from work. This means employees who take Septa home after work must cross Rt. 3, where:

1. Vehicles are moving at dangerous speeds

2. It is difficult to see oncoming traffic moving West bound due to the upward hill before reaching the restaurant

3. The street area is poorly lit

4. There is no visible bus stop nor a sidewalk, so passengers waiting for the bus must wait on the shoulder of the road

There was a recent incident that occurred where a Teikoku employee was fatally struck by a vehicle on a weekend night after a dinner shift while crossing the street to the East bound side of Rt. 3. We can not afford to lose anymore lives when conditions can be made safer for everyone. I propose that Willistown Township, the Township Police Department and Septa take collective action toward resolving these issues that can potentially cause more accidents in the future and make it a safer area for all by: 

1. Enforcing stricter laws when it comes to speed limit and aggressive driving 

2. Police actively monitoring the area day and night

3. Installing a visible bus stop a safe distance from the road with a well-lit booth

4. Installing more street lights 

Please consider the safety of those involved and help reach those who possess the power to make said changes in order to prevent future accidents.
