Dear Councilmember Harrell, Mayor Ed Murray, and the Seattle Department of Transportation,
Thank you for implementing phase one of the Rainier Ave Safety Corridor project. It has made a positive differnece to our community. The data shows that aggressive speeding (over 40 MPH) is down 95%, injuries involving people walking are down 41%, the #7 bus has not been slowed down, and traffic still flows.
Now it's time for phase two. Every crash impacts our community – from cars careening into our businesses to our children being run down by drivers who never even stop. Rainier Ave S should be made safe for all people to walk, bike, drive, catch the bus, shop, and live. Everyone who lives along Rainier Ave deserves a safe street from Rainier Beach to Mt Baker.
Thank you for phase one. We have your back to complete this important safety project.
