After 2 kids were struck and badly injured, Rainier Valley Greenways calls Saturday safe streets rally

Details from Rainier Valley Greenways:

We have had enough of kids and people of all ages being injured at the intersection of Rainier Ave S and S Henderson St. Just this year, three children have been hit at this intersection.

Join us to talk with Mayor Durkan about what can be done to fix this intersection before school starts, and urge finishing the entire Rainier Ave safety project. Let’s support the city as they consider acting quickly to address these critical safety problems.

    I just don’t get it. It’s the most dangerous street in the city. The lanes are way too wide for the speed limit. It should be obvious to just narrow the lanes and add bike lanes, yet they refuse. Shouldn’t saving lives be more important than allowing motorists to drive at highway speeds? Yet they scrapped any possibility of traffic calming, and they’ve only “scheduled” a speed limit reduction on the entire street for 2021. It’s insane. Even children are getting hit by motorists.

    How about exhibiting actual political courage by beginning to enforce traffic regulations, as opposed to empty sloganeering?

    Driving at the speed limit in this town unleashes a torrent of hostility from drivers trying to fix their broken mode of living by mashing on the gas pedal. It’s lonely being the 1:10 who tries to respect the safety of others. How about some help?
