One of the reasons I started this website is that many of the below Government Officials have blocked me from posting comments on their Facebook Pages (so much for Free Speech).
Please contact on Facebook, Twitter, send email, and call on the phone.) Tell them that the FDOT's misplacement of Wheelchair Curb Cuts is killing 130 Pedestrians (many women and children) every year.
Call, Twitter @JoeGruters, and Facebook Representative Joe Gruters (941) 914-2004;
and Representative Margret Good , Facebook, Twitter @RepGoodFL, (941) 955-8077,
and Congressman Vern Buchanan , Facebook, Twitter @VernBuchanan, (941) 951-6643.
Ask them to Sponsor:
1. The Jessica, Lillia, Isabel, Alexis, Pedestrian Safety Compliance Bill. This Bill would relinquish control of Local Roads (roads with speed limits of 45mph and below) from the FDOT to Local Authorities (like in most other States). This Bill would also require FDOT Employees to undergo training in the use of Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalks and Pedestrian Safety Islands.
2. The Sidewalk Obstruction Clear Zone Compliance Bill. This Bill would require that State FDOT District ADA Coordinators have former Education and Work Experience in the ADA. This Bill also requires FDOT Employees to undergo training in FHWA Clear Zone Safety Standards and ADA Wheelchair Pass By Standards. In addition this Bill requires the FDOT to relocate Street Lamp Posts which violate FHWA Clear Zone Standards.
