The Bigger Vehicle Wins

One of my NW Portland neighbors took these pictures of the aftermath of an auto/powered-wheelchair collision at NW 21st and Flanders. In a post to the neighborhood listserv, he questions whether increasing the auto intensity of NW Portland (with a new parking structure) is a good idea.

My question is having just re-signed NW 21st to 20mph, what else can we do to make it safer and avoid these kinds of accidents?

Sorry, we don’t have any word on the condition of the victim.
