Petition Tag - bus stop
Pinellas County School Board and Transportation require children to walk up to 2 miles to their bus stop on dangerous roads by known predators. There are over 300 missing children in the State of Florida.
Children ages 9 through 16 walking alone are the prey of choice for sexual predators. Even with Safety Training children are abducted. Most employers will not let parents off of work to retrieve their children from these bus stops. Let's keep our children safe!
There are too many bus stops without a seat for the community to sit on, and this is exhausting for anyone after a long day who can't sit and wait at the bus stop, especially for an elderly person.
Why is it fair to expect them to stand up to wait for the bus, you will be old one day also.
Good Transport is an essential part of any rural community and that includes accessibility to the services provided. In spring 2008 the bus stop outside the post office was unilaterally closed by the bus company. The alternative bus stops are several hundred meters east and west.
Many of the people who use the buses are pensioners and children this has put an extra burden on them especially when they have heavy shopping to carry. Despite valiant efforts by the Parish Councils Arriva has refused to reinstate the bus stop.
There has been an overwhelming response from residents to reinstate the bus stop in the village plan surveys.
Constant anti-social behaviour from under age youths drinking, fighting, graffitiing and causing general distress on a severe regular basis.
The most important concern of the people is the safety of our children once they leave the house every morning and when they get off the bus each evening.
During the fall semesters of school it is dark when the children congregate at the bus stop and there have been reports of registered sex offenders at the bus stop on countless occassions. There have also been reports of parents physically attacking other people's children. There are countless fights and numerous of other acts of malice and thereafter.
On day rainy days the children are soak and wet before they even get on the bus. The majority of the trouble the children get into begins at the overcrowded bus stop. There are three different schools of children at the bus stop at the same time. The police have been called several times for incidents that have taken place at the bus stop.
There is a high volume of traffic at the bus stop especially during drop off. There is no cross walk worker and the youngest child walking to and from the bus stop is five years of age.
We, the people, feel that a lot of these problems can be avoided by the bus simply driving into the circle instead of having the children walk out of the circle to go to school! Thank you very much!
As college students we don't have a whole lot of money, so when ever we get a chance to save a litte bit of money it is a good thing.
There are several students that live in the hicksville area who do not dorm that need means of transportation to Briarcliffe Bethpage.
We, the residents of Bowes Road object to the placing of a bus stop outside our residence.
We believe it will cause disturbances to our quiet and peaceful neighbourhood as well as encouraging more crime from people who are not from this neighbourhood i.e. young children.
Anothe reason why we are not happy about this new proposal is because it will reduce the market value of our properties and make the houses in front of the bus stop look unattractive.
This is our proposal that we have put forward to yourselves in the hope that you will recognise the clear distress the residents are feeling regarding this matter.
We would like to point out that the residents do not object to having a bus stop on Bowes Road, but we simply believe that placing it here is not necessary as there is plenty of space to place it elsewhere.
We, the taxpayers of Hendry County, hereby, request that Ms. Denise Brookins be removed as a School Bus Driver with the Hendry County School System. Ms. Brookins in the past 2 months has left a 9 year old child on the bus from 6:30am till 1:30pm. Ms. Brookins has allowed a student to get off at the wrong bus stop to beat up a child. She claims that the child snuck by her. She then asked the kids still on bus what was going on and they told her and she made no attempt to correct her mistake by returning to the bus stop and picking up the child. The students have said during last year that Ms. Brookins, when the students get unrurly on the bus, she just slams on the brakes and almost got hit 3 times last year by a Semi-Rig.
We the taxpayers believe that Ms. Brookins is going through burnout and needs to be removed before she seriously causes one of our children to be tragically injured.
We, the undersigned, want TO GET AN UNSAFE BUS STOP CHANGED BACK TO A 40YR. OLD SAFE BUS STOP.
