Rally for Pedestrian Safety
166 pedestrians were killed by cars and trucks on New York City streets in 2006. Already this year, too many have lost their lives (pdf) on New York City streets. Just one week ago, James Rice, 4, was killed by a turning SUV while crossing Baltic Street in Boerum Hill. What makes this young boy’s death even more appalling is that the intersection where he was killed was slated for traffic calming improvements nearly three years ago.
