PEDESTRIAN SAFETY ON 18TH AND HALSTED

On Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 5:05pm, Martha Gonzalez, a life-long resident of Pilsen was a victim of a fatal hit-and-run incident at the intersection of 18th & Halsted in Chicago.  She was walking westbound across Halsted when she was struck by a northbound car and subsequently stuck by the northbound No. 18 CTA bus following the vehicle.  The driver of the first vehicle involved is still being sought after.

We, the Martha Gonzalez Memorial Committee (MGMC), are asking that you sign this petition as fellow concerned citizens, if you would like to see the intersectin of 18th Street & Halsted improved for safety.  Several of our demands include:  No Turn on Red Signs, Left Turn Signals, Numbered Pedestrian Signals, Photo Enforcement cameras, Protection of the sidewalk against drivers cutting corners, Yellow Pedestrian Crossing Signs, Improved Timing, etc...

MGMC is working with Alderman Daniel Solis and other city officials in order to work on making 18th and Halsted a safer intersection for the Pilsen community.

Once we have at least 1,000 signatures we will take this petition to the Alderman's office, CDOT and OEMC.  The road to change and a safer community for you and your family starts with one concerned citizen.  Please let that person be you!

Thank You,
Martha Gonzalez Memorial Committee.
