In memory of Jose Alzorriz, the 19th cyclist killed this year, we demand that the Department of Transportation immediately and unequivocally take action and expedite the planned traffic safety study of Coney Island Avenue.  From July 2018 to July 2019, on this 2.7-mile strip of roadway, there have been 578 crashes, injuring 19 cyclists, 43 pedestrians and 114 motorists. That is a rate of 1.58 crashes per day. The last crash happened on August 11, 2019, resulted in the death of our dear friend, Jose Alzorriz.

We demand that the Department of Transportation redesign Coney Island Avenue to comply with the Vision Zero road traffic safety project. This means:

-          Implement automatic enforcement against speeding, illegal parking and right of way violations.

-          Build a protected bike lane that uses planters, curbs or posts to separate the bike and automobile traffic.

-          Focus on road danger reduction strategy that will reduce the amount of kinetic energy in such a way that when mistakes are made, they are not catastrophic.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We want safer streets in our communities. STOP THE DEATHS NOW.
