Philadelphia Has No Desire to Address Traffic Safety

letters to EditorImage by IslandWorks

EDITOR: Philadelphia has again shown it has no desire to address traffic safety, such as people doing stunt driving in front of city hall with the police right there, people riding dirt bikes or ATV’s on public streets, etc. Instead, I see the new Vision Zero report, which puts out the same anti-driving policies that may be causing problems.

The red-light and speed cameras the city has are clearly not preventing anything, but we are told we need even more? Why, so more revenue can flow in? How about using 85th percentile speed limits, longer yellow lights, and fewer stop signs?

To me, the report shows Vision Zero is a failure and should be called Zero Vision. Then there are yet more anti-driver proposals to inflict even more harm upon people, many of whom are minorities. Use proven engineering techniques, not debunked policies that fail. Vision Zero failed in NYC too.
