Cowperthwaite/Prospect

Hey Patch - catch up!

Alt Press is carrying a letter from 24 petitioners to the Mayor and Council demanding action to improve the safety of pedestrians in this area after the tragic accident of 2 Feb.  This is much more important than the state of the Westfield real estate market and other mundane headlines you've been running!  There have been several major accidents on or near ProspectDudley/Cowperthwaite since last March.  Why? Speed and in attentiveness.  No enforcement and no posted linits coupled with people driving like they're shot out of a cannon from Trader Joe's or the light at Elm - journalists used to try to make a difference - here is an issue to sink your teeth into!

Patch's free and open platform is available to everyone in town who wishes to raise an issue and spark a discussion with neighbors about something they want to see change in Westfield. This is obviously an important one to residents. Thanks for sharing your concerns.

The petitioners missed one very big issue that contributes to the poor visibility at the intersection. NJ parking statute 39-4:138 prohibits parking 50 feet from a stop sign and 25 feet from a crosswalk. The Town's no-parking signs are wrongly placed, allowing parking much closer to the intersection. Compare to the intersection of Clark and Cowperthwaite.
