Odesh Bisham 24/02/2013 Civics Essay: Stop Light On Martin Grove

The topic I picked for our Civics class essay was a traffic light for Martin Grove Street. In a community, people need stop signs and traffic lights to slow down drivers from going to fast. If there were no traffic lights or stop signs, people’s lives would be in danger from divers going too fast. Students who go to blue sky, known as store front, will need a stop light for that area. Without this, someone may get hurt while jay-walking due to the fact he/she didn’t go to long distanced stop light. When having stop signs and traffic lights, people have a tendency to drive slower and look out for people walking in the middle of streets. To put a traffic light or a stop sign in a community, it takes a lot of work and planning from the community and the city to put one in. It is not cheap to do it either. The community first needs to take a petition around to everyone in the community and have them sign so they can take it to the board when the next city council meeting is. A couple residents will present it to the board, and they will decide whether or not to put it in or not. When the planning of putting traffic lights and stop signs, you should look at the subdivision plan and figure out where all the buildings and our school are for the protection of our students walking and riding home from school, or just going for lunch. In our plan that we have made, we will need traffic lights next to the school, so people will look out for the students going across the street. If this is done everyone will be safe
