THE INTERSECTIONS AROUND LEWIS AND CLARK HIGH SCHOOL
JUST GOT A LITTLE SAFER, THANKS TO A NEW FLASHING
SCHOOL ZONE LIGHT.
KXLY 4'S GRACE DITZLER IS WORKING FOR YOU.
GRACE, THIS LIGHT IS THE RESULT OF AN ACCIDENT BETWEEN
A PEDESTRIAN AND A DRIVER?
CITY COUNCIL MEMBER LORI KINNEAR SAYS A LEWIS AND
CLARK TEACHER WAS HIT BY A STUDENT LAST NOVEMBER,
AND CAME TO KINNEAR ASKING WHAT COULD BE DONE TO MAKE
THIS AREA AROUND CAMPUS SAFER.
KINNEAR WORKED WITH THE CITY'S ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT,
THE L-C STUDENT BODY AND PRINCIPAL TO COME UP WITH
NOW, THIS FLASHING LIGHT LET'S PEOPLE KNOW WHEN STUDENTS
KINNEAR HOPES THIS LIGHT WILL HELP DRIVERS BE MORE
AWARE OF THE PEDESTRIANS IN THE AREA.
someone almost lost their life and it was tragic that
it came to that, now we have a flashing light that
will warn drivers that this is an open campus students
are out and they need to be paying attention and be
aware there are pedestrians out here :17
KINNEAR SAYS THIS IS A PILOT PROJECT.
THEY WILL GET DATA FROM THIS PROJECT TO SEE IF IT
SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED AROUND OTHER HIGH SCHOOLS IN
THESE LIGHTS FLASH YELLOW WHEN PEDESTRIANS ARE PRESENT.
