Fatal College Park wreck points out need for safer streets


DISTRICT 3 COMMISSION CANDIDATE MARTIN “LEIGH SHANNON” FUGATE VOWS TO MAKE SAFETY A PRIORITY—WHILE OPPOSING ROSEMONT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

For Immediate Release: CONTACT: Martin “Leigh Shannon” Fugate July 13, 2021 (407) 897-2117 martinfugate4district3@gmail.com

College Park, Florida---“One fatal accident is one too many,” stated Martin “Leigh Shannon” Fugate, candidate for District 3 Commissioner referencing the early morning crash at the intersection of Edgewater Drive and W. Smith Street when an Orlando Fire Department Rescue Unit and a car crashed early Friday in College Park.


According to Shannon, “Speeding on Edgewater is a continuing problem.” He referenced Orlando’s Transportation Systems Manager, Cade Braud who stated that the city is looking at ways to deal with speeding issues in the area.

“Accidents do happen all of the time,“ Leigh said, “But this horrible crash here in College Park might be one of the effects of improper overgrowth and hazardous traffic conditions within our communities. It all trickles down from the top of population, developments that may not really do the proper traffic studies. Pedestrian safety will always be my number one goal.”

Leigh is running for District 3 Commissioner. A 15 year resident and business owner in College Park, Shannon has several key issues he is passionate about including opposition to the scope of the Rosemont Development Plan which will not only negatively impact street safety with increased traffic but also flooding concerns.
