South Florida is one of the most dangerous places in the country for bicyclists and pedestrians. Shown here is the Feb. 2012 rally after triathlete Aaron Cohen was killed by a hit-and-run driver on the Rickenbacker Causeway. The incident provoked grief, outrage, and increased community-wide activism for safer streets.
After the Aaron Cohen incident, we launched our ongoing SafeStreetsMiami campaign. Making our streets safer is one of Green Mobility Network’s highest priorities. This is a long-term effort that will require widespread community support and the strong leadership of elected officials. Working together, we can make it happen.
