On Wednesday, May 30, Park Slope Street Safety Partnership is working with City Council Member Brad Lander and the New York City Department of Transportation to host a public workshop on neighborhood street safety.
 
We're asking your help in identifying dangerous locations around Park Slope, including streets where speeding is a chronic problem, intersections at which drivers routinely fail to yield, and places where you generally feel safety could be improved. Are there streets on which you would like to ride a bike but feel too nervous to do so? Are there corners where you clutch your child's hand a little more tightly when you cross the street? We want to know.
 
While the terrible crash that took the lives of Abigail Blumenstein and Joshua Lew at 9th Street and 5th Avenue in early March is still very fresh in our minds, and improving safety on 9th Street and particularly at that intersection is a top priority, the entire neighborhood is on the table. You're an expert on the streets you travel on a daily basis, and we need your expertise in identifying the places that could be made safer.
 
Join us to help pinpoint the danger zones, and to learn about potential solutions in NYCDOT's toolkit. Here are the details:

Please RSVP on the Facebook event page,  and email with any questions at ParkSlopeStreetSafety@gmail.com
 
We encourage you to attend this important meeting and wear your school t-shirts to show that our school communities care a great deal about the safety of our streets.  Children who are walking are at the greatest risk of getting hit by a car in New York City.
