SITUATION: About 30 people die and more than 500 are severely injured while traveling on San Francisco streets every year. Seniors are particularly vulnerable, and speeding is a major cause. Speed limits need to be enforced, and speed cameras would be a huge help.
California State Senate bill AB 645 creates a new speed camera program in pilot cities including Los Angeles and San Francisco. AB 645 is out of the Senate Appropriations Committee and heading for the full Senate for a vote on September 14.
ACTION: Write to state senators, urging them to vote YES on AB 645. Thank Senator Wiener for advocating for the bill.
What to SAY: We need to enforce our speeding limits to save lives and prevent injuries. AB 645 has safeguards for privacy. Please support and vote for AB 645, the Speed Camera Pilot.
SAVE THE DATE: Wednesday, September 27th 10:00-11:00 am at Hallidie Plaza (5th and Market, by the cable car turnaround)–a Transit Accessibility Event endorsed by OWL.
