Citizens Organized for
Reasonable Routes Enhancing
Community Traffic & Safety
non-on-partisan, nonprofit, member-supported public interest organization
that promotes Traffic and Safety issues by influencing public policy
decisions: legislative, administrative, legal, and electoral. A community
organization dedicated to providing a central place to review Park Ridge
Traffic and Safety issues with its citizens and their elected
Representatives and City's management. To practice and promote the
responsible use of our roads, traffic systems and resources. To educate
and enlist citizens to protect and restore the quality of our auto and
pedestrian traffic as one of our cherished human environments in Park
Ridge. CORRECTS - Citizens Organized for Reasonable Routes Enhancing
Community Traffic & Safety believes that citizen's pedestrian safety, auto
safety and reasonable routes comes first in city traffic. That before
adding a traffic signal or traffic signals which generates slow traffic,
bumper-to-bumper traffic, traffic gridlock, traffic complaints, traffic
crashes, traffic signs, traffic bottleneck, automobile traffic, traffic
congestion, rush hour traffic, bumper to bumper traffic, traffic
congestion, rush hour traffic and automobile traffic, that a Park Ridge
Alderman and/or Park Ridge Aldermen, should require a traffic study to
avoid this auto traffic scenario in Park Ridge, Illinois. Only reasonable
auto traffic should be permitted to provide reasonable routes with traffic
safety and avoid traffic accidents, traffic injuries, pedestrian injuries,
auto accidents, traffic problems, which will also decrease pedestrian
traffic in Park Ridge and thus negatively affect retail sales and our
quality of life. We encourage Park Ridge citizens to register and for all
voters to vote only for a Park Ridge Alderman / Park Ridge Aldermen Park
Ridge Mayor that promises to ensure Reasonable Routes and City Traffic
Safety. Today’s Park Ridge City Policy of waiting for citizens to first be
injured, maimed and dead, while creating a serious crisis of traffic
congestion, in traffic routes and hurting existing retail businesses, is
unacceptable. CORRECTS holds itself out as an Open Forum to provide an
opportunity for citizens and organizations to inform the public of events,
issues or projects. This will allow you to report anything you wish to see
addressed or answered regarding traffic anywhere in Park Ridge. Your input
on this issue if vital to all of us. Please review and advise us of what
you think of the concepts and what you prefer. We need your input to
inform and advise. Check out our Park Ridge Traffic and Safety series of
forums and speak out.

Death of Pedestrian Costs Fontana, CA Millions $$$$
In a surprise verdict, the parents of a 14-year old girl killed as she
walked along a busy roadway after school were awarded $37.5 million. The
parent’s attorney argued that the city of Fontana, CA, did not act on
complaints that the lack of sidewalks caused an unsafe environment,
especially in light of the heavy traffic along the road. The city was
found by the jury to be 75% negligent in her death, and the parents of the
unlicensed 15 year old driver who killed the girl were found to be 25%
negligent. Sidewalks installed after the accident cost $6,000. The city
plans to appeal.
