    Sign the Petition - A Light for Aly Purvis

    I saw this in the postings under the accident thread and I didn't want it to get lost since it is such a great idea. Please take a moment to read the letter and sign the petition.

    It's just a flashing light, not a stop light.

    I don't mean to be insensitive. I do feel for the families and that whole situation was dreadfully awful. But this is a "band aid" petition asking to fix a symptom and not the real problem.
    I would like to see a history on how many accidents have happened at that exact site before I vote yay on this petition. If I see a trend and agree, I will vote yay. Where can one find such information?
    Otherwise, putting a stop light there is only going to back up traffic and cause more delays on 4 which we don't need unless it's absolutely necessary.

    I saw on the news last night that there have been 5, 4, and 2 accidents at the Skinners Turn intersection over the last 3 years - this is the first death.

    Hmm...let me think about this. Busy intersection, traffic light...busy intersection, no traffic light...busy intersection, traffic light. Yeah, I think a traffic light is a good idea.

    Okay, since my boyfriend's father said this, he may or may not be making it up He told me once that the county generally doesn't consider putting up a light somewhere until there have been at least three fatal accidents. He said that there used to not be a light at White Sands and that after a few fatalities they put up a light. Sounds odd to me.
