Memorial and Call to Action for Vision Zero

From the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition:

The last week has been a tragic week for traffic fatalities in our City- two deaths in four days. What makes these deaths even more heartbreaking is that they both occurred on high injury corridors– places where we know people are statistically more likely to be hit or killed.
