Monday, October 24th, the Mayor and City Council will be convening the first in a series of three road safety summits. The meeting will be held in the Bertha Knight Landes Room at City Hall (on the ground level when entering from 5th Ave–600 4th Ave Seattle, WA 98104). The Mayor’s office released a ‘save the date’ announcement, although the time of the event has not yet been announced.
The Mayor recently wrote this in a blog post:
“A transportation system with no traffic fatalities or serious injuries, where all users share responsibility for their safety and that of others they encounter in their travels. Can we do it? As a community we must try,” http://mayormcginn.seattle.gov/street-safety-summit-coming-in-october/
We encourage participation in this event and are hopeful that there are some substantial and postitive developments that emerge from the summit.
Bikers need to respect the same laws as cars if they want to “SHARE” the road. That would cut down on injuries. If I drove as 99% of the bikers do,I would have my license suspended.
