Westwood resident starts petition to make dangerous intersection more safe

WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Many Westwood community members living along LaFieulle Avenue spent Monday hanging up signs, asking drivers to slow down.

Police have determined speed was not a factor in Friday morning's accident that claimed the life of 9-year-old Tyala Frazier, but residents want to prevent future accidents.

"The incident that happened Friday, I don't want to see it take another child's life," said Tracy Lovins, a resident who organized Monday's petition and protest "Knowing my kids are out here and my neighbor's kids are out here."

The community wants a four-way stop sign, speed caution lights and a pedestrian crosswalk put along the busy road. However, some of those requests may be unrealistic.

"If the volumes are high in one direction like in this case where it is north and south, and on the other road their not, we really can't justify putting in a stop sign," said Tim Jamison, Cincinnati Traffic Engineer.

Jamison says a pedestrian crosswalk could be looked into. He says safety has been a focus in the area and the speed limit was reduced last year from 35 MPH to 25 MPH.

"A couple of people ask us, we look into it and if it is a correctable situation we'll look into it," said Jamison.
