Let's make Northside crosswalks safer for ALL of us and let's make drivers pay attention, follow the speed limit, and yield at crosswalks.
It's time to stop waiting for the city to wade through the red tape when we can enact simple and effective change in the meantime.
We will be making bright, reflective handheld signs for walkers to hold as the cross the street to alert drivers to slow down. We currently have plenty of fabric, reflective tape, and various threads for embellishment. I also have some flags which will became capes for those wanting a little more pizazz.
We would love if anyone could contribute by donating fabric paint, sticks to hold the flags and buckets to be attached to the light poles. (If you can provide, please make a comment!) Yes, we could just make or buy flags like those above, but let's give it our own neighborhood flair.
