The 12th annual Traffic Awareness & Pedestrian Safety Week is coming up- April 9 to 18. I guess that makes it longer than an actual week, but you get the idea.
Hosted by the Community Assembly’s Pedestrian, Transportation and Traffic Committee, this week will be kicked off by Mayor Mary Verner and members of the City Council at an event at the Saranac Building, 25 W. Main Ave., at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 9.
During the week, drivers are reminded to slow down, obey speed limits, and become more aware of pedestrians, thus making Spokane neighborhoods safer and more livable.
I’m not sure what’s going to take place at this kickoff event but I’m going to try to be there to document it if my workload allows.
