Two new LED pedestrian crosswalk signs were activated today in front of 1655 Post Road East in Westport where a 49-year-old man was killed in December 2008 as he crossed the busy street. (See WestportNow Dec. 23, 2008) The $7,000 cost of the flashing signs, which operate on solar power and must be activated by pushing a button, was donated by the family of the victim, William C. Ford. He was killed not far from another pedestrian fatality at Westfair Drive last December which took the life of Sharon Broecking, 62.

To see the lights is to see the care and concern Bill had for his friends and all the residents of Westport.  It’s an accomplishment in his honor to try and protect people with a crosswalk made safer. Let’s hope all drivers heed the notice of people trusting these signs as added protection to their crossing a busy street.  While the effort to get these signs placed was difficult, the result could be so worthwhile. Thank you to all who supported our efforts!
