Dear Mayor Ed Murray, Seattle City Councilmembers Mike O'Brien, Kshama Sawant, and Rob Johnson, and Seattle Department of Transportation Director Scott Kubly,
All people have the right to safely travel on our streets. Many people in Seattle are seriously injured on exposed streetcar tracks in Seattle. We need our city to build and maintain streets we can all use safely.
By signing below, I support the following demands from Central Seattle Greenways:
(1) Immediately, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) needs to provide continuous, intuitive, protected bike lanes on Yesler between 14th & Broadway to protect people biking from the streetcar tracks.
(2) The City of Seattle must provide safe bike routes and crossing wherever there are train tracks in the street.
Far too many people have been seriously injured or died on our streets when forced to bike in the same space provided for streetcar tracks.
It doesn't have to be this way. Solutions exist to make our streets safer. Join us in asking the Seattle leaders to make #SafeTracks for Safer Streets. We need #CompleteStreets now. #WeCantWait for more injuries or fatalities.
