Traffic Enforcement – Town Hall Meeting With Christine Quinn
Chekpeds, the the Clintonâ€“Hellâ€™s Kitchen Coalition for Pedestrian Safety, reports that 75% of community members are concerned for their safety because of traffic, while only 6% are concerned about crime! Recently, another pedestrian was killed at 15th Street and 9th Avenue.
Chekpeds seeks to obtain more enforcement at intersections, officers who care more about pedestrian safety than flow of cars and who are qualified to issue summons.
City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and the Chair of the Public Safety committee are hosting town hall meetings to give community members the opportunity to voice concerns about and suggest improvements to current police operations in their neighborhoods.
This event is a unique opportunity to demand more enforcement and safety for pedestrians.
