We petition the City of Dover, NH to implement a pedestrian crossing light at the crosswalk onChestnut Street that runs from the front of Saint Mary’s Church towards Third Street.
Pedestrians who have used this crosswalk have been injured and even killed. This is a dangerous intersection with a lot to distract a driver before approaching the crosswalk.
The addition of a street light strictly for pedestrian use will improve the safety for local residents in Dover.
My name is Jackie Cote and I am a local Dover resident.
On August 22, 2012 while using this crosswalk I was struck by a motor vehicle traveling North on Chestnut Street. I sustained several injuries causing me to be hospitalized for several days.
I understand that being a driver as well as a pedestrian comes with responsibility. I feel that the area that the crosswalk is located in is dangerous. I recognize the importance of the crosswalk to Dover residents visiting Saint Mary’s Church and feel that it should not be removed. However I do not wish to see this accident happen to anyone else.
