Chico panel asks for south campus traffic study

Nearly four months after a Chico State student was struck and killed while walking in an intersection south of campus, a special committee is recommending a traffic safety study of the area.

The City of Chico's internal affairs committee voted Wednesday to recommend a study of the south campus area's traffic.

The decision and any further action by the Chico City Council comes after Chico State students petitioned the city to rethink its many intersections controlled by yield signs rather than four way stops.

Some students say a four-way stop might have prevented the death of 21-year-old Nickolas Klein on the night of March 28.

Others say a four-way stop may not have prevented Klein's death, because the driver of the Chevy Trailblazer that struck him was suspected of driving under the influence and speeding.
