Jenn’s Plan: Make our streets and sidewalks safe for all of us

Anyone who lives in our neighborhoods knows that our streets and sidewalks are a safety nightmare. Every time you step outside you risk life and limb just trying to get across the street.

The Problem: 

  1. Our sidewalks are a mess with large, gaping holes, missing bricks and uneven sidewalks everywhere.
  2. Our traffic signals are not coordinated so you are forced to walk and drive over the same space at the same time.
  3. Cars running red lights are blocking key intersections making it harder for others to travel.

Jenn’s Plan:

  1. Fix repairs of sidewalks with temporary repair within 48 hours. Permanent repair within 21 days.
  2. Eliminate turn and walk signals that put cars and pedestrians in the street at the same time.
  3. Cameras at key intersections to reduce running red lights and stopping in the middle of key intersections.
  4. Bicycle education programs for all ages.
  5. Limit Ubers to only Mass registered vehicles for pickups.
  6. Install four-way walk signals at key intersections.
  7. License blue bikes and fine those violating the law using 3-1-1
