They need signs in the middle strip that say STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS.

Some flowers and more trees would be great. The lighting at night needs major improvements. I can't tell you how many times people have walked out in front of me that I never saw because the lighting is so terrible. Thankfully I drive much slower through there at night because of that. I don't know how someone hasn't been seriously hurt yet.

Traffic calming is important... they could use some small center medians with plantings (similar to Brookside) to help slow traffic down, and make pedestrians feel safer crossing the street.

Cherry Street should have some Cherry Trees I think. Right now it has one at Quincy.

Does Jenks have them on Main Street?

Something like this:



I mean really, how much can these costs? Why they haven't been installed yet just blows my mind.

Amazing! In every other state we travel to, drivers know to stop when there is someone in a crosswalk.

They must not know about the bonus points.

1 point for every pedestrian,  2 points for a bicyclist.
First driver to 100 points wins.

How long have you been here??  It's Oklahoma.  We just this week finally got a law against texting while driving.  And it wasn't even important enough to take effect until November....   (No emergency clause).

You mean we really have to post signs to tell people not to run over people? and you shouldn't "Because it's the law?"

No common sense in Oklahoma.  What's our education ranking at, again?  Maybe if we were to break into the mid 30s, we wouldn't need the signs

The shielded street lighting they put in 2 years ago was a big improvement.  Its much more uniform than the Hodge-podge of lights they could hang on random poles.  My only criticism is they used earlier generations of LEDs that are a bit too blue; today its common to find LEDs that are the color of incandescent lights.
