Workshop flyer via WABAThe Washington Area Bicyclist Association wants to help you stay alive while walking, biking or driving on District streets.

WABA is scheduled to host a traffic safety workshop titled “Walk, Bike or Drive… We Want You Alive” at the Mount Pleasant Library (3160 16th St. NW) on Thursday, Dec. 8, at  6:30 p.m.

The workshop will focus on Vision Zero, D.C.’s ambitious initiative aimed at ending all traffic fatalities by the year 2024.

From WABA:

Did you know that there were 67 car fatalities, 57 pedestrian fatalities and 7 bicycle fatalities from 2011-2014? No one should die on our streets while trying to get to work, school, or run errands. And we want it to end!

Come out to our second workshop, Walk, Bike or Drive… We Want You Alive: A traffic safety workshop at the Mt. Pleasant Library on December 8th at 6:30pm. We will be discussing Vision Zero, which is the initiative to end all traffic fatalities by 2024. Next, we will take a field trip to the 14th and Irving intersection and look at ways we can redesign it and make it safer for all roadway users. This workshop will be informative. You will have an opportunity to make sure your voice is heard and help make the streets you use in your neighborhood safer.

Join us December 8th, 2016 at 6:30 pm at Mt. Pleasant Library located at 3160 16th St. NW Washington, D.C. 20010
