On March 5th, two children and their mothers were struck by a driver in a crosswalk on 9th Street. The mothers were hospitalized and seriously injured. The children, Joshua Lew and Abigail Blumenstein, aged 1 and 4, were killed.
Local activists have begged officials to fix 9th Street for years. Had it been redesigned, there is a chance these childrens' lives could have been saved. Lets not wait any longer.
Send a message to demand Mayor Bill de Blasio fix 9th Street now.
Please fix 9th Street. With protected bike lanes, concrete pedestrian islands, and a narrower roadway, 9th Street could be transformed into a truly safe community space.
For years, local activists have begged officials to fix 9th Street. Had it been redesigned years ago, there is a chance these childrens' lives could have been saved.
Lets not wait any longer. Vision Zero infrastructure could prevent future tragedies. Please, fix 9th St. No excuses.
