Increase Safety at intersection in Paducah, Kentucky in memory of Alexandra Hailey

On October 31, 2018, in the late afternoon, the world lost Alexandra (Zan) Delaine Hailey, 26,  very suddenly in a tragic car accident while traveling for work in Paducah, Kentucky. Zan was a poet, an artist, and an intellect. Lighting up every room she entered, her extreme selflessness towards others will always be remembered.  My name is Neil Hailey, Zan's brother. I started this petition with the intent to prevent another tragic accident at the intersection of McKendree Church Road and Highway 286 in Paducah (McCracken County), Kentucky. Zan's life was not the only one taken at this intersection. Just two months before, on August 2, 2018, a car accident, which occurred in an identical manner, took the lives of two Tennessee residents, Kevin Hudgins, 43, and his father, Sammy Hudgins, 64.  Many other accidents have been reported at this intersection as well. Please consider signing this petition to get a stoplight installed at this intersection in Kentucky and help contribute towards preventing another tragic incident.  They say catastrophes often happen in three's. Let's make sure that the third death in three months is the last.

Petition to Mayor Kent Guinn, Nick Blizzard, Kevin Sheilly

Lights for Amanda and Alyssa

  This petition is for the need of 4 way traffic and pedestrian signals at the intersection of N.E. 30th Ave and N.E.14th Street in Ocala Florida. My 15 year old loving daughter Amanda Lopez and her beautiful friend Alyssa Comstock age 17 were killed in a car accident on December 15th 2017 at that intersection when a semi truck struck the vehicle they were traveling in. Our community has full knowledge of how dangerous this corner is. I myself have witnessed a semi truck drive into a gentleman's home at the Magnolia Trace apartments some time ago. There have been numerous accidents throughout the years because of the lack of traffic control at this intersection. The lack of control over high speed vehicles in this vicinity has motorist as well as pedestrians in our community afraid to travel in that direction. The People are afraid and now innocent lives have perished.    What needs to happen is for the community to come together and formally request through this petition that our fair city immediately begin on construction on a traffic signal at this treacherous crossroad. If nothing is done now, Amanda and Alyssa's live will not be the last lives lost.   We have a wonderful community which has been torn apart by this loss. Please sign this petition and reach out to the leaders of our community so we can prevent this from happening again.

Petition to Fort Lauderdale City

Stop 680 unit high-rise in East Fort Lauderdale

Update following 12/3 community meeting hosted by Commissioner SORENSEN: Following an opening statement regarding affordable housing, we heard the developer's lawyer FLUMMOXED ... DOES THEIR LAWYER EVEN KNOW WHAT SHE IS SELLING?  We heard local real estate individuals question why a 680 unit high rise was proposed, which according to them COSTS MUCH MORE TO BUILD than smaller buildings all over the city.   WHY NOT BUILD MANY MORE UNITS AT SAME PRICE ALL OVER THE CITY??? We heard residents ask if the developer has EVER done this before or whether 680 unit high rise is a “crash test dummy”.  We heard they HAVE NOT DONE THIS BEFORE. WE ARE STILL TRYING TO PROCESS ALL OF THE INCONSISTENCIES BETWEEN THEIR APPLICATION AND WHAT 200+ of your NEIGHBORS heard by RECENTLY RETAINED COUNSEL LAST NIGHT.     Problem A proposed a 680 unit high-rise development impacting emergency services, utilities and traffic flow in East Fort Lauderdale.  This proposal dwarfs previously rejected projects of MUCH smaller proportions within the City. City officials were elected based on promises to prevent over-development and burdensome impact on traffic, emergency services and utilities in an already strained infrastructure. Hold them to their promises!SolutionStop the commissioners from approving this project. We also call on OUR elected officials to develop city infrastructure, emergency response time and traffic issues prior to entertaining ANY new large scale development.  Notably, the this proposed 680 unit high-rise!
