City of Boston & BPHC: Please Install Bike Lanes on Brighton Avenue NOW!!!

    1. Petition by

      BU NonSmo

I was shocked to learn about the bike accident that occurred on a street that I biked quite frequently. After last night (11/12/12)'s tragedy, it is necesary to have bike lanes in order to prevent future bike accidents on a well traveled street. We want bicycles to be separated from cars and pedestrians, so having bike lanes on either side of Brighton Avenue makes sense and would benefit all parties.

To:
City of Boston, Mayor Menino
Boston Public Health Commission, To the officer in charge of funding
Please install bike lanes on Brighton Avenue to improve bicycling safety on the road and to decrease preventable accidents. Please do not wait until next year because a delay is likely going to result in additional accidents. Thanks for understanding!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    1. Cycletrack in Somerville Beacon St.

      Although I have never been on that street, I think it is important to support anything related to bicycling; the Boston Cyclists Union put up this petition that you may be interested in: http://bostoncyclistsunion.org/campaigns/beacon-petition/

    2. A big thanks to Boston bikers

      In less than one week, this petition received 100 signatures. Thank you all for signing and sharing. Hopefully, our efforts would quicken the process for Boston to add bike lanes on Brighton Avenue and eventually to other streets bikers frequent. Together, we provide a voice to those who died unnecessarily in bike accidents that are definitely preventable in the first place. Thank you again for your support and never stop biking.

      I often bike to campus and I find Brighton Ave. to be dangerous without bike lanes.
