StreetsPAC Volunteers Support Margaret Chin

StreetsPAC Volunteers joined up with Margaret Chin's campaign Friday in Chinatown to canvass for the councilmember's re-election. The councilwoman chose the intersection of Bowery and Canal to highlight the dangers of vehicular traffic coming off and on the Manhattan Bridge. The councilmember knows the dangers of the intersection first-hand as she's lost one of her own supporters to traffic violence at this intersection. While Chin has been able to work with the community, its leaders, and the Department of Transportation to improve pedestrian safety through various traffic calming efforts (landscaped medians along Bowery, shortened crosswalks, and new street markings to direct on-ramp traffic), the councilwoman continues to fight for more pedestrian-focused improvements.
