Vision Zero Vigil, Sunday, 4:30 PM
This Sunday afternoon, traffic safety activists from around the city will gather to commemorate the nearly 300 New Yorkers killed in traffic crashes last year and the 17 killed already this year.
The location will be the South side of Myrtle, at the intersection of Wyckoff & Palmetto. (The L & M trains stops there.) Last year at this time, 23-year-old Ella Bandes was run down by an MTA bus at that intersection.
The vigil will be a chance to honor the memories of those killed, hear from their families and from officials who are trying to tackle this epidemic, and express our own continued commitment to try to change this painful situation.
Our visibility around this issue is mobilizing increased attention around the city, so let’s keep the momentum going.
