Road Safety Summit tonight at Northgate

November 15th, 2011 · Comments

The city wants to know how you feel about the safety of Seattle streets. You can tell them from 6-8 p.m. tonight at the Northgate Community Center, 10510 5th Ave. NE, as part of its Road Safety Summit. This is the second of three public forums on road safety.

The City of Seattle envisions a transportation system with no traffic fatalities or serious injuries, where all users share responsibility for their safety and that of others they encounter in their travels.

The Road Safety Summit, through…public forums, an online survey, and in-person outreach, is providing a chance for the public to give their input on three questions:

  1. What do you think are the highest priority safety problems to solve on Seattle roads?
  2. What do you think are the most important things to do to make Seattle roads safer?
  3. We often talk about what government can do to promote safety. What are the ways that non-governmental groups and individuals can promote safety?

We have asked a broad cross section of stakeholders — elected officials, experts, roadway users, major employers, advocates, business leaders, and community leaders—to listen to the public and to come up with action items that will address the public’s top road safety concerns.

Working together, we will develop a shared citywide commitment to safety and an action plan that will help us work toward our goal of no traffic fatalities or serious injuries.

The third public forum is next Monday at the Southwest Community Center, and a final Road Safety Summit Meeting is on Dec. 12 at City Hall.
