Bonus Reader Submitted Question of the Day

“i have a question, maybe you would know or if not, maybe your readers would know.

last fall, a friend of mine was hit and killed by an automobile on capital hill as he crossed the street. saturday, i was nearly hit by a car in my neighborhood, then watched an accident happen when that car turned into an SUV. it was the first time i have called 911, actually. [this was on 14th at kennedy, btw].

anyway, what can we do to make this city safer for pedestrians? i’ve lived in several cities, chicago, nyc, and london, and i have felt the most unsafe here, as a pedestrian.

how do neighborhood residents get things like a crosswalk button for pedestrians at intersectinos (there are none there, fyi) or those flouresnect ‘ped x’ signs put in?

who do i talk to/call?”
