Make the Illinois Prairie Path Bicycle-Friendly

To be delivered to The Illinois State House, The Illinois State Senate, and Governor Pat Quinn

Petition Statement

The Illinois Prairie Path should be improved where it intersects First Avenue and Mannheim Road. Both multi-lane streets have heavy traffic and should have traffic lights that bike-riders could activate, or pedestrian/bicycle overpasses. At First Avenue, there is already a traffic light, but it can be activated only by cars. A simple button there would make a huge difference.
There are currently 199 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

Riders of the Illinois Prairie Path confront a decidedly Bicycle-hostile start at First Avenue, and shortly thereafter at Mannheim Road. Both multi-lane streets should have traffic lights that bike-riders could activate, or pedestrian/bicycle overpasses. Instead we face a death-defying gauntlet of traffic.
