To spur the city into quicker action, we need more activism and more advocacy journalism. That’s why we’re launching Human Streets, a daily news site for safe streets issues. We’ll turn up the heat on city officials who fail to take action to change our streets and achieve zero deaths on our streets by 2024, the goal known as Vision Zero.
Just imagine what our streets could be like if we put people first. It’s exciting to think about how simple solutions — protected bike lanes, wider sidewalks, slower traffic — can turn our streets into healthy spaces where we connect with people and are free from the anxiety that a driver might hurt us or our friends and loved ones.
