THURSDAY: StreetsPAC ride to City Hall

May 13, 2014


On Thursday, May 15, join Councilmember Carlos Menchaca (District 38), Councilmember Ben Kallos (District 5) and StreetsPAC for a solidarity bike ride to City Hall in support of Bike Month and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero Action Plan. Later that day, Chairman Ydanis Rodriguez and the Transportation Committee of the New York City Council will hold their Executive Budget Hearing, focusing on funding the next steps toward street safety for all.

Help us make widespread safety a reality! Vision Zero presents a comprehensive blueprint for ending the epidemic of traffic fatalities, enhancing the safety of all New Yorkers, regardless of their mode of travel. In the past month, more than 20 resolutions and amendments to local law have been discussed, all aimed at making our streets safer.
