As part of a class project, students Michael Arther, Connor DiNallo, Ravi Ahuja and Dyllon Chowdhury (along with team coach Fred Arther) have set up a short survey asking Newtown residents about the most significant traffic hazards and issues in town.
"Hi, we are a group of 8th grade students from the Newtown Middle School with the intent of making our roads safer. This short survey is meant to establish a thorough understanding of road improvements that need to be made. The information gathered in this survey will be distributed to the Public Works Department of Newtown. They then can use this information to make our roads and lives safer."
The survey even allows participants to rate the severity of the issue and suggest a solution — everything from a stop sign to a guard rail to an improved line of sight.
