Petition to Mayor John Moor, Asbury Park City Council, and City Manager
Asbury Park-Building a Better Main Street
We the undersigned, as citizens, business owners, and visitors to Asbury Park recognize the need for and the benefits of a vibrant Main Street that is safe for everyone, especially the most vulnerable. We support the road reconfiguration for Main Street/NJRT 71 which would be fully funded by NJDOT. We believe the city should rescind their resolution to reject this plan. We believe that Asbury Park needs to implement the road reconfiguration on Main Street as part of a larger plan to address safe streets to be in compliance with the city's own existing Complete Streets Policy. Asbury Park is under redevelopment and streets are being resurfaced so this plan needs to be accepted NOW.

Safe Streets for Rochester
18th Ave NW is ready to undergo a road redesign. The plans look great save for the fact that bicycles in an unprotected bike lane will be riding along side car and trucks traveling at 45-50mph. This makes drivers incredibly nervous and puts cyclists in danger especially during winter months when roads narrow due to snow removal. Commuter cyclists use 18th Ave to come into downtown daily. Drivers don't want to share the road, neither to those riding bikes. Rochester is redesigning a wide road with no on-street parking, there are several other viable options available that don't reduce car speeds and keep us all safe. Tell Public Works and your elected officials that you expect a better road and safety for all.

Support Safe Speeds for Denver
High speed traffic kills. High speed traffic makes our streets less pleasant for people walking and biking. Decades of research have found that drivers traveling at higher speeds are less likely to see someone walking or biking, are less likely to yield, have less time to stop, and if a crash occurs, it is much more likely to be fatal. Each year in Denver, more than 40 people are killed in traffic crashes and more than 1,900 are injured. Despite being involved in only four percent of the crashes, one third of the traffic deaths are people walking and biking. (Source: City and County of Denver Vision Zero Crash Dashboard, data from January 2012 – December 2015.) The Denver Vision Zero Coalition therefore calls upon the City and County of Denver to take the following actions to address the inherent dangers of unsafe speeds: Commit to implementing an annual program that funds safe speed projects throughout the City, starting with the 2018 budget. Test the effectiveness of various street design treatments for safe vehicle speeds through demonstration projects on residential, main street and mixed use streets (two or more of each), implemented in 2017. Adopt formal guidelines in 2018 to guide safe speeds on streets throughout the City, based on the outcomes of the demonstration projects.
