Make it safer to cross Penn Lyle where a person was hit while walking in the crosswalk

More of these, please!

The West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance urges the West Windsor Township administration and Council to install rapid-flashing pedestrian beacons at the intersection of Penn Lyle Road with Canoe Brook Drive, the site of the recent collision between a person crossing Penn Lyle Road in a crosswalk and the driver of a car.

Join us at the Council meeting on Monday Feb. 13 to show your support! The WWBPA will speak at the start, during the public comment portion of the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Municipal Center.

As we wrote in a letter to our officials, the rapid-flashing beacons installed elsewhere in town have made motorists much more aware of those using crosswalks. The WWBPA believes the crossing of Penn Lyle at Canoe Brook is another excellent candidate, both because of this serious collision and its proximity to WW-P High School South and Maurice Hawk Elementary School. The WWBPA urges that funding be included in the FY2023-2024 budget now under discussion.

The WWBPA previously has advocated for a number of additional rapid-flashing pedestrian beacons elsewhere in West Windsor. Read about that here.

Where else are they needed?
