Walking Home Safe on South Hill

Contributed by Suzanne Smith on 10/09/2015 

Submitted on behalf of Dominick Recckio.

Dear Fellow Students,

It has come to my attention that many of the routes that students walk off-campus can be unsafe, specifically, Troy Road, Coddington Road and 96B/Danby Road. Each of these roads has considerable traffic that moves at various and rapidly changing speeds, and I want to make sure that as students, we all take more caution when walking around our local area, especially late at night.

Some local residents have expressed concern that students have been walking in their yards and in some cases, damaging property such as mailboxes. I understand that on roads like Troy and Coddington there is very little space to walk, as well as deep ditches to keep from falling or tripping into, but we all must be respectful of our neighbors’ property. Our South Hill community is a vibrant one, and that comes from the wonderful cohabitation of students and local residents.  We don’t want to lose that meaningful relationship.
