Have you ever wished for a sign?
Me, too. And I got one!
A “No Turn on Red Sign” has been installed at the intersection where I was hit by an inattentive driver.
It is hard to explain how happy it makes me to see this sign. It feels like a big love letter just for me from Arlington County.
I am so grateful for the biking and bike advocacy community in Arlington and the DC area who I have gotten to know better in these last few months. The folks at WABA & BikeArlington are doing great work and offer many helpful resources.
I am especially grateful to Gillian Burgess of Kidical Mass Arlington and everyone else at the Arlington County Bicycle Advisory Committee who drafted and submitted a letter to the county manager requesting the “No Turn on Red” sign at this intersection. They specifically cited my being struck as an example for the need for the sign.
It is nice to know that sharing my story has helped improve a little corner of my community.
