Dear Bicyclist,
 
Last Thursday morning, a father and his 4-year-old son on a bicycle and "tag-along" were struck and critically injured by a car when crossing MLK (West River) Drive at the mid-block crosswalk below the Art Museum. This horrible crash is the latest example of the dangers of a beautiful park road that has been allowed to become a throughway. It is time to Take Back the Drive and make MLK Drive safe for park users.

2008 Annual MeetingYou can take action this week:

Send a letter to Mayor Nutter asking him to return MLK Drive to a park road and avoid another crash like the one that happened on Thursday.

Join the Bicycle Ambassadors this week as we educate motorists about the need to slow down and yield to pedestrians at the crosswalk. Come and hold a sign:

  • Tomorrow (Wed.) and Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm
  • Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 am
Take Back the Drive

Another Action You Can Take to
Improve the Trail



Over 2,100 people have signed a petition asking that the Schuylkill River Trail be extended and its critical gaps closed.  Help us reach 3000 signatures! 

You can also support this campaign by giving to our Complete the Schuylkill River Trail Campaign.
