Greenwood resident Andrea Okomski and neighborhood activist Kate Martin took Seattle Transportation to task on its efforts so far on pedestrian safety Tuesday night.
Okomski’s son Joe was hit by a car four years ago when he crossed a four-lane road. Joe, 19, is permanently disabled as a result. Martin is a vocal community activist from Phinney Ridge who is involved in a range of quality-of-life issues, including parks concerns.
Both gave city officials an earful about pedestrian safety taking a backseat to car and bus movement.
