Traffic Safety Activism as Memorial
Next Thursday, Feb.15th 4:30-7:00, come demonstrate your love for your bike and your fellow cyclists!
We will be gathering at 26th and Stark Street, where Nick lost his life to a speeding motorist.
Make a face to face statement to motorists about traffic safety. We'll have cyclists gather on both sides of the intersection with signs asking drivers to slow down and take care to drive safely through our neighborhoods.
Make a sign- and some to share if you can. The media will be invited. We’re starting early so that you’ll have time to scoot off to free geek’s movie night, or the nopo greenway meeting afterward.

You know, I had some personal activism lately against cell phone driving users. I have a tendancy to make sure they almost did, or could have almost hit me (the pedestrian) while they looked other ways and ignore pedestrians (and often bicyclists).
Good luck to getting the point across to those driving out there. I often have mentioned how I drive excessive speeds, but noted, it is on the interstates, and on the side roads/neighborhoods I drive posted limits and often are excessively aware of pedestrians and bicyclists, being I am one of those more often than a car driver I'd hate to be a hypocrite.
