Stop the Chicane in West Dundee
Tonight the Village of West Dundee Board voted to create a chicane on Lincoln Ave. at Geneva St. in West Dundee. A chicane is a road barrier that creates a narrowing and curve in the roadway to reduce speed. We do not want a chicane in our neighborhood for the following reasons: 1.) It is unattractive and more relevant for larger metropolitan areas, 2.) It inhibits snow removal since plows are unable to fit into the narrowed area created by the chicane, 3.) It is a road hazard and can cause accidents, and 4.) It is unnecessary and a waste of taxpayer funds since traffic issues have already been improved through additional stop signs, road improvements, and significant decline in traffic due to pandemic work-from-home conditions. This petition is meant to stop the installation of a chicane in West Dundee, and signatures will be delivered to City Manager and Village Board.
