Death of student prompts community to push for crosswalk

There's a new push to protect other children days after a middle school student was hit and killed outside his Gastonia school.

ARTICLE: 14-year-old boy dies after being hit by car

Community members created a petition to build a crosswalk at New Hope Road and North Avenue.      
 
The death of Cramerton Middle School student Steven Canipe is prompting the community to put pen to paper and sign the petition.

The push is for crosswalks, crossing guards and a lower speed limit on the stretch of New Hope Road where the 14-year-old was hit and killed while trying to cross the road to get to school last week.
 
The petition requests the Department of Transportation reduce the speed limit near the school from 45 mph to 35 mph and to 25 mph in the school zone.
 
A representative said the change is possible but the DOT must first launch its own investigation into the crash.
 
 “We look at traffic volumes on the road. We look at speed limit and other contributing factors that make that road unique,” said Jordan Ashley, DOT.
 
Community members hope their voices are heard in honor of Canipe.
