Fighting for Caihla sign now

This petition recognizes the importance of the safety of visitors to Evergreen Park. For a number of years, this park has been able to operate with only one entrance. This has become an issue after a tragic accident this past summer. Emergency vehicles were forced to block the roadway, allowing no one in or out of the park. If this entrance were blocked before emergency vehicles arrived, there would have been no way to get to the scene of the accident. The main roadway going into the park is also quite narrow, with a very limited shoulder on either side. This shoulder is not even wide enough for people to walk in, as well as there is no pathway or sidewalk beside the roadway.

It should also be pointed out that there is no lighting whatsoever along this roadway. Considering this park is used often, and can be very busy, there should be sufficient lighting along the roadway.

There are also no marked pedestrian crosswalks anywhere on the road. The people who were using the road as a walkway, were making the right choice by not drinking and driving, and going to catch a cab. Unfortunately, they were punished for making the right choice.

The organizers of such events could be held liable for those people who are consuming alcohol at their venue. They are responsible for their safety. Shuttle buses could have been provided, as well as policing outside of the venue. These are both very important issues, as sometimes the cab companies cannot keep up with the demand. Whether we accept it or not, drinking and driving is a big problem at these types of events, and there should be policing to conduct check stops outside of the venue. If a person was to become intoxicated at the venue, then proceed to drive out of the venue and hit and kill someone, the venue can be held liable.

After recent articles in the Daily Herald Tribune, it is obvious that Evergreen Park is not taking any of these issues into consideration. They discussed the possibility of road and lighting changes, but these are not solid points that will be improved. These are big problems, and it is unfortunate that they had to be brought to peoples attention after a tragedy. Evergreen Park needs to deal with these problems before another accident takes the life of a person, and scars the lives of many others.
