So, it’s early summer and you’re riding your bike down Lincoln St in downtown Spokane, when you get cut off by a driver making a sudden right turn. That was close.
Take a look at this map provided by the Spokane Regional Transportation Council, and you will see that between 2007 and 2009, pedestrian and bike collision incidents occur all across Spokane. Pedestrians are the group most at risk for serious injury or fatality in a traffic collision.
This is why NextUp Spokane (a local non-profit of which I am co-chair) is advocating for Complete Streets this summer.
To really get things started, we are inviting people to screenprint their very own “I ♥ Complete Streets” t-shirt.
Here’s the scoop:
June 17, 6-9:30pm at the Dirty Yeti on W. Main Ave in Peaceful Valley. Look for party posters.
