Make Highway 16 safe for our children

Shauna Hill, a student at Eagle High, died as a result of an auto accident on December 10, 2012 at the intersection of Floating Feather Road and Highway 16. Her passenger, an Eagle High student was also seriously injured. Another Eagle High student was in a serious accident on November 8, 2012 at this same intersection and miraculously survived. The facts are clear that this region of Highway 16 is dangerous and poses an imminent threat to our children and something has to be done to protect them.

Signing this petition signifies that you support that action must be taken to immediately reduce the speed limit on Hwy 16 from 65 MPH to 45 MPH through the Eagle/Star corridor from Highway 44 to Beacon Light Road before another tragedy involving our children occurs. Continued action must also be taken to place a signal light at the intersection of Floating Feather and Hwy 16 as expeditiously as possible to provide a safe crossing for the ever increasing traffic. Parents and citizens must stand up and be heard and the time is now! Please forward to all that should be concerned.

IN COMMENTS SECTION, PLEASE IDENTIFY YOURSELF AS A CONCERNED PARENT, STUDENT OR CITIZEN. COMMENTS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND EFFECTIVE.

Edward H. Hill, Shauna Hill's father.
