Help protect bicyclists and pedestrians!
Each year in Washington state, nearly 500 pedestrians and bicyclists are killed or critically injured by motor vehicles. Shockingly, almost none of these drivers is ever held accountable.
In the vast majority of cases, these collisions were found to be the direct consequence of moving violations like speeding, driving while texting, talking on the phone, failing to yield the right of way or just not paying attention.
A traffic ticket is the worst the driver can expect if they run you over. Do you think there's something wrong with this picture? We do.
If you agree, help us make history by changing the law. The Traffic Justice Summit welcomes Senate Judiciary Chair Adam Kline, Seattle city Attorney Tom Carr, Council Public Safety Chair Tim Burgess along with reserchers, experts, advocates, families, friends and victims to learn the facts and talk about what we can do as a community -- and as a state -- to protect pedestrians and cyclists.
