Make Shroyer Safe
Currently there are only two safe crosswalks with a stoplight at the far end of Shroyer Rd in Kettering and Dayton. One of the crosswalks is at E Dorothy Lane in Kettering and the other is at Patterson Rd in Dayton. There is a cross walk near Dairy Queen closer to Patterson Rd but it has no stop sign and cars often fly through with drivers paying little attention to pedestrians. (*Petitioners want the Dairy Queen crosswalk to be better enforced.)
Shroyer Rd is very active with a speed limit of 35 mph. There are many individuals and families who are part of the Oakwood/ Dayton community who live on the east side of Shroyer Rd and have to deal with the traffic on a daily basis. And as we all know this is a walking community. Oakwood too is a community where children walk to school and are not bused. Children often cross Shroyer Rd to attend Lange Kindergarten (bused from Smith), Smith Elementary, Oakwood High School, to visit their friends, school activities and their school's sporting events.
This petition is to add a NEW four-way stop with a crosswalk to be
installed at a midway point on Shroyer Rd in Oakwood. The
crosswalk will be a four way stop with either stop signs or a traffic light. What best serves the
community is to have this new four-way stop intersection at the midway point between E Dorothy Ln and Patterson Rd recognizing that Smith Elementary sits between Aberdeen Ave and Telford Ave. We would also like the city to consider adding speed bumps to slow cars down and more pedestrian signs. By signing this petition we agree that this is a large public safety concern that affects the safety of us and our children.
