Tell Mayor Gray "Make our Streets Safe", by signing this online petition.
Ms V testified on Enforcement of Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety in her role as the HCCA Street, Traffic, and Transportation Chair. We need more voices in this fight.
Year-to-date 254 pedestrians/bicyclists have been struck by motor vehicles in the city. In case you are keeping tabs, we are only 153 days into the year. In the Hillcrest community we've had 4 pedestrians hit in the last 12 months: 2 at 32nd St & Alabama Ave and 2 children at 36th Place & Alabama (in front of Anne Beers Elementary School). The most recent pedestrian hit in our neighborhood was on Friday May 27, 2011.
Please sign the petition to let Mayor Gray know that Hillcrest and Ward 7 was safe streets.
