ROCHESTER, Ind. – A mother in Rochester started a petition with the hope that no kid will have to cross the street to get on or off a school bus again.

Jessica Chambers says she created the petition after three kids were struck and killed while getting on the school bus Tuesday in Rochester.

The goal of the petition is to stop having kids need to cross the street to get on the bus.

“As a parent of a child that crosses a busy road in the afternoon, I would much rather tack on an extra 15+ minutes to the bus ride if it meant she came from a different direction and could step right into the driveway without crossing the road,” Chambers said in the petition.

At least 124,000 people have signed the petition.
