T-UP Intersection Layfayette & Springtown Road sign now

To the State of Oregon: Oregon Department of Transportation,

On April 25, 2006 our Friend Rick Braun was killed on his motorcycle when a van pulled out in front of him to make a sweeping left hand turn. This intersection where Rick lost his life is very dangerous. We have held a rally at the site of the accident Lafayette Hwy and Springtown Road in McMinnville, Oregon to sign a petition now we are looking for more signatures here online. To T-UP this intersection so no one else gets killed there. There are no Yield signs. There is a banked sweeping curve. People take that sweeping turn without even braking or slowing down. Which is what happened when that Van hit and killed Rick. We are asking that the sweeping curve be eliminated and T-up this area with a blinking yellow light. This road has had other Fatalities and we don't want to see anymore. We had a lot of input from people who live in the area and who drive that everyday sharing with us stories of close calls and their fear of driving that section of Hwy. Rick Braun was more then a friend. He was a Husband of 28 years, A Father, A Grandfather, A Son, A Brother, A uncle. He will be missed by all.

We, The citizens of the State of Oregon, Petition the state to T-UP the intersection of Layfayette Hwy and Springtown Road in McMinnville, Oregon. Traffic has become too heavy to safely allow Northbound traffic to yield properly against Southbound traffic,causing the fatal accident that took Rick Braun's life on April 25th, 2006. Let's make a change and save a life. Don't let your friends die there!!
