BIKEWALKKC WON THE LOCKDOWN!!!
In terms of using the limited access to municipal government to their advantage and seizing upon an unprecedented opportunity . . . Without question, no other Kansas City organization came close to the progress of local cycling advocates.
To be fair, we regret any traffic death and keeping streets safer should be a goal of every person on the road.
Accordingly, here's their latest in a string of lockdown victories which might or might not hold up amid the REOPEN.
"The Vision Zero resolution treats traffic violence as a public health and equity issue, asks the City to use data to adapt infrastructure and policy to eliminate traffic deaths by 2030."
"BikeWalkKC, along with LISC, Samuel Rodgers Health Center, Paseo West Neighborhood Association, Hope Faith, KC Healthy Kids/Greater KC Food Policy Coalition, KC 4 Safe Streets, Better Block KC, KC Regional Transit Alliance, Sunrise Movement KC, families of victims of traffic violence, and many of our members wrote letters of support and organized public testimony from dozens of Kansas City residents for this resolution."
Stay safe out there and hopefully we'll have more for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!
