From an email:

“In response to the death of scooter rider Carlos Sanchez-Martin, who was killed by an SUV driver on Friday in Dupont Circle, we’re planning a memorial ride for Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. [Meet: Sonny Bono Park (corner of NH Ave & O St NW)
Wheels up: 5:30]

We are calling for:

– Protected infrastructure for scooters, bicycles & personal mobility devices

– Raised crosswalks & pedestrian crossing times long enough for pedestrians to make it across the Circle’s travel lanes without getting caught on an island

– Improved way-finding signage and road markings for motorists

Additionally, DC Council is holding a Vision Zero roundtable in response to the two bicycle crashes (and subsequent memorial rides) that occurred earlier this summer. Here is more info on that. Those who would like to testify in person need to sign up by Wednesday at noon, however, the Council will be accepting written testimony until 10/11.”
