Petition of Support for Traffic Pattern Change in Frisco, Texas

Intersection: Rolater Rd & Coit Rd.  Request: Rolater Rd, both east and westbound and on Coit Rd north and southbound.

Rolater and Coit

Background:  In this past year, one of our STCC members was passing through the intersection on her bicycle.  Two separate oncoming cars failed to yield and both struck her, causing devastating injuries.  There have been other accidents and close calls to both drivers and cyclists, many related to vehicles going to or coming from the two high school in the general area (Centennial High School & Liberty High School).

Request: In the interest of safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers, I support changing the current traffic signal pattern from the existing "flashing yellow" yield to a left turn on "green arrow only".  This should be applied on Rolater Rd, both east and westbound and on Coit Rd, north and southbound.  This signal pattern should be in effect during times of school activity at either Centennial High School or Liberty High School.

By completing and submitting the form below, I understand and agree that my submission will be used to demonstrate support for the proposed change to the City of Frisco.

Councilmen and Mayor,
    I wish to voice my support for the proposed bike parking ordinance (Zoning Case No. ZA16-0001) under consideration at this weeks City Council meeting.
      As you know, providing bike parking at local businesses and developments is a decision that is good for business. Frisco is an active community, filled with residents that are concerned about their health and future. It is also a city populated by a large number of cyclists, young and old. Riding the bicycle improves our health, is good for the environment and has a positive impact on Frisco’s economics. New companies moving to the area are concerned about their employees, their health and lifestyle options and frequently ask about cycling facilities.
        Being able to ride our bicycles to local businesses, knowing that there will be a safe and secure location to leave them while we shop and eat, is one way to encourage that active lifestyle. You can play a key part by helping ensure those parking facilities will exist.
          As a resident and a voter, I encourage you to support this ordinance and allow the cycling community to demonstrate its worth.
