Make West Blvd safer. Student on bicycle struck by SUV.
Today (9-22-2015) a Student riding home from Belleville East on their bicycle on the sidewalk got hit by a vehicle at the intersection of E. Main St and West Blvd. He was on the side of the road waiting for emergency services to respond. There are accidents on West Blvd very often. Today a bicyclist got hit. Before long a pedestrian coming or going to school or getting from point A to B could get struck, especially considering cars flying down West Blvd and the amount of Pedestrian and Automobile traffic, especially after school. Today is the day we need to start taking a lot of action in our community to make West Blvd SAFER from Carlyle Road to E. B St for the pedestrians and the operators of Vehicles. By doing so, the chances of something equivalent to or worse then this happening again would decrease exceptionally.
-By signing this, you are agreeing that West Blvd at this location in Bellivelle, IL, needs to be made safer by the state of Illinois and the City of Belleville for pedestrians, bicyclist, and operators of motor vehicles.
