Safe Routes wants to get a committee together to do a community outreach campaign to encourage drivers to put down their phones. If any of you want to help, please reply here. Getting people to change habits is hard and takes a multi-pronged, positive approach with education and enforcement. Would love your ideas and involvement! We can make a difference sooner rather than later! ... See MoreSee Less
Barbara ChristianSince many cell phone users are from out of town, may I suggest a sign hung below the Chagrin Falls entrance signs that reads: "Welcome to our phone free village" followed by the ordinance number.
Angela DeBernardoIf Safe Routes would like to consider a community action committee to take on pedestrian safety for the village as a whole instead of just within the school community, I'm all for that too. I know that was not the direction the group wanted to take a few years back, but it is sorely needed.
Alex HamerstoneI think it would be a worthwhile endeavor to have people sit at the corner of main and Washington or at the crosswalks for a day and get unofficial data on how many people they see on cell phones/how many near misses. Or mount cameras and make montages of all the near misses between pedestrians and vehicles.

JL MattsonApple announced its new iOS will detect if you are driving and will shut everything but navigation and I think handless calls when connected to Bluetooth. That might help and more things like that might help?
As another school year draws to a close, the board of Safe Routes Chagrin wishes to say THANK YOU to our 23 volunteer crossing guards! This year, we presented Dick Shanklin with a special award for volunteering for over 10,000 shifts since 2009 - an original watercolor by local artist, Tan Gillespie. (see photo) Mayor Bill Tomko, CF Police Chief Dacek, former CFPD Chief Brosius, Councilwoman Angela DeBernardo, Sgt. Weiskopf and Officer Nyce all dropped by to convey their appreciation.
When you see any of these volunteers, please take a minute to say how grateful you are for their service!
