CSUC students call for replacement of yield signs with stop signs

Apr 2, 2015 5:51 PM by Brian Johnson

In light of a deadly traffic accident last weekend, nearly 1,000 Chico State students have signed an online petition calling for change on south campus streets.

They're taking a stand against what they say are dangerous intersections and calling for stop signs to take the place of yield signs throughout the south campus neighborhood.

This comes just days after 21-year-old Chico State senior Nick Klein was hit and killed by a car on Saturday.

Students say putting in more stop signs could only help prevent accidents like it.

Third-year Tyler Day signed the petition because he sees people blow yield signs all the time.

"I feel like stop signs today are almost like yield signs and yield signs are pretty much go on through," Day said.

Meanwhile, Chico city traffic engineers were at the corner of 7th and Chestnut this morning, helping Chico Police by taking a survey of Saturday's fatal accident.
