letter to the Mountian View Voice

It's a "crash," not an "accident." Time for Vision Zero.

In response to the tragic article about a Los Altos woman who was struck by a motorist and killed, Safe Mountain View founder, Patrick Moore, sent the letter below to the editor of the Mountain View Voice:

Thank you for keeping the community aware of the FOURTH pedestrian/bicyclist death in Mountain View this year.

When driving, we must be aware that there are other vulnerable road users out there. Our kids, our parents, us. 

It is also important that we call the latest CRASH what it is: a CRASH, not an accident. An accident is a random, unpreventable happenstance.
