Livable Streets Launches Safer Streets Campaign

Written by Boston Biker on Apr 26

From Livable Streets:

You may have heard the sad news: Eoin McGrory was struck and killed by a truck while biking in Charlestown earlier this month.

This tragedy highlights the dangerous conditions on our streets; streets that put cars first, to the detriment of people who want to walk, bike and use transit.

As I think about Eoin this month, and other victims of senseless street crashes, I ask myself, how can we make our streets safer for everyone using them? How can we prevent crashes like this?

While there is no one answer to these questions, we can and must come together and take action to improve our streets.

I’m proud to announce that LivableStreets is taking action by launching the Safer Streets Campaign to improve street design and bike infrastructure, and make Boston streets more livable for everyone.

Want to be part of making our Streets Safer?

Sign the Safer Streets petition to show your support, and help us build momentum for improving safety.

We’re working to make sure that the call for safer, more connected and human-scale streets is heard louder than ever, because we know that real change happens when we come together and ask for it.

Sign the petition – and ask your friends to sign too – to be part of the movement making Boston safer and more livable.
