Stop signs needed for children's safety


August 30, 2009

It appears that children’s safety in this city is not a priority.

I am fighting with the city of Clovis to put back the stop signs on Main Street where it intersects with Plains Avenue.

The stop signs that had been there more than 40 years for the safety and protection of our children at Highland Elementary School were removed last November by the Traffic Safety Committee.

This put our children in danger, making that intersection dangerous to cross on foot as well as in a vehicle.

More than 150 people have signed a petition to have the four-way stop put back. But the city still has not replaced the stop signs.

The voices of 150 people are being ignored and overridden by the few.

I am asking that more voices contact our elected officials until they take the safety of children seriously and put back the stop sign.
