Update: Sept 8, 2014 - Burnaby City Council approved a traffic light at Smith and Kincaid. Thank you to Mayor Corrigan, Council, the Traffic Safety Committee, and to Burnaby City Staff who listened and responded to our traffic safety concerns. The light will be paid in the 2015 operational budget. Since the decision has been made, we are hopeful a way can be found for installation as soon as possible.
Thank you,

June 30, 2014 - A traffic light is needed at Smith and Kincaid Avenue in Burnaby. I have lived with my family near Burnaby Hospital since 1986 and this intersection is dangerous for everyone. Cars are accelerating across Kincaid Avenue from congested Boundary Road. Smith and Kincaid Avenues are now major through streets in Burnaby. We have seen too many accidents and cars ignoring the 4-way stop signs.

On Monday, June 30 at 5:45 pm under a sunny sky another pedestrian was hit while crossing. Myself and others stopped to help the injured man until first responders arrived. It was so encouraging to see so many people stopping to help.

Moms and children walking to Cascade Heights Elementary School compete with impatient people in cars rushing to work. Ambulances transporting patients to Burnaby Hospital have to navigate this busy 4-way stop.

If you want a traffic light at Smith and Kincaid Avenue, sign this petition. Please leave your information so that you can be contacted when a date has been set with Burnaby City council.

Let's work together to fix this dangerous intersection. Together, let's encourage Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan and Burnaby City council to make the wise decision by having a traffic light installed at Smith and Kincaid Avenues immediately before another person is hit.
