[ARCHIVED] SURVEY MONKEY QUESTIONNAIRE ON PEDESTRIAN RELATED/CAR ACCIDENTS --PLEASE RESPOND

There have been a number of pedestrian accidents in recent months within the town of Greenburgh and around the region.  Two fatalities in recent months. Six separate pedestrian accidents in different sections of the town . Greenburgh is not alone.   Earlier this week lohud.com published a very interesting article (see link below) highlighting the  pedestrian deaths that have recently occurred in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties. The link to the article is below.

In the coming weeks a citizens traffic safety committee will be formed by the town. The committee will work with town officials and identify initiatives that should be considered to make our community safer. Last year the Town Board appropriated significant funds in the 2020 budget for traffic calming/pedestrian safety initiatives. 

As part of our survey monkey initiative (another initiative the town recently started to get community feedback on issues of importance) our Survey monkey coordinators came up with a list of questions concerning pedestrian/motorist safety.  Please take a minute or two to respond to the questions. One interesting question that was proposed by a resident:  Should the Town to pass an ordinance requiring all residents to wear bright clothing/ reflectors in the evening with violators of said ordinance being subject to fines?


If you have other suggestions please feel free to e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com. If you’d like to be a part of our traffic safety committee when it is formed please also advise.  Please respond to the survey monkey questionnaire by Tuesday afternoon.  Results will be shared with town officials and with the community.

Thank you for your participation.
