To the Editor:
Thank you for your articles on pedestrian events. My family has been very concerned about how dangerous our streets have become for everyone. People are driving more recklessly in city streets. Two pedestrians were killed by cars in our neighborhood in the past year.
We look forward to voting for the pedestrian safety measure on Berkeley’s ballot in November – even though we will have to pay additional taxes of $25 annually for 10 years. This is a small amount to pay to make walking safer for everyone including seniors citizens, children and pets.
