ECU students doing all they can to make 10th street pedestrian friendly

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT)- East Carolina University students are doing all they can to keep their community safe.

For months, the SGA has attended meetings and public forums trying to make a portion of 10th street pedestrian friendly. They want pedestrian signs, a traffic light, and speed limit reductions near Copper Beech Townhomes” and 33 East apartments.

In October, ECU student Samuel Mayo died trying to cross 10th street. Now, his family has started a petition asking for the same things s-g-a is working to correct. SGA vice president Jenny Betz says this part of 10th street is dangerous and something needs to be done.

“We don’t want another tragedy to happen, we’re in a reactive state right now let’s make sure that we can accomplish this before anything else happens,” Jenny Betz said.

So far the petition has more than 1 thousand signatures.
