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.
