It’s in the Bag

The goal of the Pedestrian Master Plan is to make Seattle the most walkable city in the nation.  To achieve this goal, the plan recommends providing pedestrian safety education targeting both drivers and pedestrians.  And next Saturday, you can get a little taste of safety education in action.

The Aurora Traffic Safety Project has partnered with PCC Natural Markets – Greenlake on a traffic safety education event to take place on Saturday, February 13th.  The goal of this effort is to reduce unsafe behavior that contributes to collisions on Aurora such as speeding, failure to yield to vehicles and pedestrians, and inattention.   

We will be handing out informative cards containing facts about Aurora as well as safety reflectors and reusable shopping bags branded with the PCC and Aurora Traffic Safety Project logos (see photo below). 

Join us on Saturday, February 13th from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Greenlake PCC Natural Markets (7504 Aurora Ave) to learn more.   

The Aurora Traffic Safety Project is funded by a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission and the Washington State Department of Transportation.
