SAFER STREETS FOR PEDESTRIANS

There are many trouble spots, where some combination of lower speed limits, improved enforcement, or the introduction of traffic signals, would likely make the area safer for walking, so we don’t feel forever hemmed in by cars.

Between 2010 and 2014, there were 316 casualty crashes on Sydney Road, of which 131 involved a pedestrian and 66 involved a person riding a bike.

All six tragic road fatalities in the Brunswick electorate since 2014 have been either pedestrians or cyclists.

Cars speed through pedestrian crossings in spots such as Brunswick Road at Ewing St where children are walking or riding to school, and Lygon St at Weston St where commuters are boarding trams.

The double bends where Nicholson St turns into Albion St, see a car leave the road every month or two, despite lots of extra signs, paint and a lower speed limit.

A good government would build roads that keep vulnerable users (like kids walking to school) safe.

With your help I’ll continue the fight for safer streets in Brunswick.
