March 22, 2 pm: Rally to Protect NYC Kids with Speed Safety Cameras

From our friends at Families for Safe Streets and Transportation Alternatives:

"Earlier this month, two children were killed by a reckless driver while crossing a New York City street. A few weeks before that, another child was struck and killed while riding his bicycle. That’s three young New Yorkers who have been killed in the first three months of 2018 by deadly driving, and 40 during the Vision Zero era.

"Each and every one of these tragedies could have been prevented. But we have been too slow to implement known remedies. TransAlt and Families for Safe Streets have been fighting for more speed safety cameras to protect school zones for years, and we’ve been frustrated with the progress in Albany year after year.

"This Thursday at 2 p.m., side-by-side with Mayor de Blasio, we will call for action. Please join us.

"Speed safety cameras are proven to dramatically reduce speeding and save lives. More of our schools should have them. And right now, there is a unique opportunity for us to ensure speed safety cameras are included in the state budget.

"Last week, one thousand New Yorkers, led by hundreds of kids, marched in Brooklyn to demand an end to traffic violence NOW. They’re not willing to wait any longer.

"Stand with us on Thursday and say you’re not willing to wait either."

We'll be with Families for Safe Streets and T.A. tomorrow at City Hall – please join us to demand that the legislature and the Governor include reauthorization and expansion of the city's speed safety camera program in this year's budget!
