Speak up at a public hearing in favor of more pedestrian-activated flashing lights

West Windsor Township Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed FY24-25 budget during the May 13 council meeting.

Attend and join the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance in thanking our elected officials for budgeting $100,000 for crosswalk improvements, FIVE TIMES the usual amount. We’ll also be reminding them of where we think some of that money should be spent: on those pedestrian-activated flashing yellow lights (rectangular rapid-flashing beacons, or RRFBs) at the intersections of Rabbit Hill/Bennington/Abbington and at Penn Lyle/Canoe Brook.

You don’t want to speak at a public meeting? Please come anyway and applaud the speakers. It’s incredibly helpful for the administration and our elected officials to see new faces.

One last thing…

Please consider signing this petition from WW-P HS South students that asks for RRFBs at Penn Lyle and Canoe Brook. This is a crosswalk used by many students going to and from school. Then share the link with your friends and neighbors. It’s another way to show your support for a safer and more walkable West Windsor.
