In response to the recent accident on Rainier and in an effort to bring more attention to the traffic and safety issues in the neighborhood, concerned neighbors have organized a Cross “Walk-In” for Safe Streets tomorrow at 4:30 at Rainier and Ferdinand. The official Facebook page for the event has all the details as well as an ongoing discussion about what steps should be taken:
Please join your friends, family, neighbors, customers,business owners, schoolmates, fellow community members of Rainier Ave. South for a lawful, public demonstration.
Our goal: To promote action from Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) to slow traffic on Rainier and improve safety for all.
What will we do at 4:30pm on Friday?
Just cross the street together when the pedestrian light turns to the walking signal.
– We will all cross Rainier at the same time and we will continue crossing until everyone is on the other side.
– Then, we will wait for the next walking signal and cross Rainier in the same manner going the other way
– We will continue to cross the street at Rainier and Ferdinand until 5:30pm.
Please invite your friends and neighbors.
