Put guardrails/barriers up on the Summerlin Parkway
It is absolutely imperative that the City of Las Vegas install guardrails/ barriers up on the Summerlin Parkway. We, the citizens and visitors of Las Vegas, are extremely outraged that the safety of the Summerlin Parkway is being neglected and pushed aside. The guardrails/barriers must be installed to prevent cars from crossing over the center median and going into oncoming traffic. This is has happened too many times and too many lives have been lost. The rocks and little bushes in the middle of the parkway DO NOT STOP CARS FROM CROSSING THE MEDIAN and going into oncoming traffic. The city claims that the rocks and bushes in the median do prevent cars from crossing over the median, but as we have seen time and time again, THIS IS NOT TRUE. The guardrails were supposed to be installed in 2011, however it was pushed aside, once again. Money and aesthetics are not a good enough reason to neglect the safety of our citizens and visitors.
The people who have lost their lives on Summerlin Parkway were real people, not just news stories. They were sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and best friends. Our families, who have lost our loved ones, have suffered an unfathomable loss. No more families need ever experience the pain and devastation that our families have experienced. The guardrails/ barriers will not bring our loved one back,however, they WILL save the life of another family's loved one,and that makes it all worth it. This is a preventable tragedy.
Please sign this petition to have guardrails/ barriers installed on the Summerlin Parkway.Our safety cannot be ignored any longer.Our voices together are strong and loud, and this time we will be heard. Thank you
