New Highland Ave Crosswalks
An unsafe crossing location
We are advocating for a crosswalk on Highland Avenue where students from Needham High School frequently cross to go the the shops. The existing crosswalks are far from the typical cross locations near the bottom of the memorial field stairs and are never utilized by the students.
We need to help keep our kids safe by adding a crosswalk were drives will be watching for pedestrians and required by law to stop.
Another way to slow cars down
These eye-popping crosswalks are skillfully painted to ensure drivers see and slow down for them.
Studies have shown the effectiveness of these types of crosswalk, as well as walks with automated flashing lights and signals. These are among the ideas we are exploring to help keep our pedestrians safe.
