Welcome to Fix49.org

 

We the residents of Nevada & Placer Counties are greatly concerned by the recent head-on collisions on State Route 49 between Auburn and Grass Valley. We believe that a median barrier, widening the highway and other safety features would reduce the accidents and fatalities along this section of Highway 49. We all have been devastated by the horrific accidents on the dangerous road we call our highway. Most of these fatal accidents could be prevented by a center median. Over the last decade, the collisions per year have greatly increased from 89 to 166 (see graph below). You can help in two ways below, first by filling in your name to sign the petition and second by emailing our leaders.
Until then, there are numerous things that can be done to increase the safety of this section of road such as:

 Decisions we make as drivers: Speed, Cell Phones, Seat Belts, Sobriety, Respecting Other Drivers 

 Education: Reducing Speed in the Rain, Not Tailgating, Leaving 5 Minutes Earlier , Politeness 

 Speed Enforcement - the CHP has increased their presence and is doing a lot more speed enforcement - Thank You!

We need to pay for printing petitions, buttons, web hosting etc.

We respect your privacy and will not share your private information.
Below you may enter your contact information to automatically sign the petition to make Hwy 49 safer.
