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.

A 4th of July Declaration:

The time has come in Park Ridge when citizens must take back control of their government. To this end a new party is created dedicated to:

Honesty: Not just an ethical issue, honesty is a matter of political capital responsibility.

Accountability: Political Parties must make clear commitments to distinct candidates and elected officials and abide by them.

Consideration: A critical pillar of trust is the belief that a party shows regard for the interest and feelings of others.

Transparency: Trust and transparency reinforce each other.

Accident Victim Speaks After 20-Year Silence!!!

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.
