May 16 marks the next installment of the Savannah Development and Renewal Authority’s “Dump the Pump: Leave Your Car at Home Day.” The SCAD eco practices council is an official partner organization for this event!
From 12:00 to 12:30 at the corner of MLK and Liberty, Pedestrian Advocates of the Coastal Empire will be staging a “crosswalk action.” During this event, a group of pedestrians will repeatedly cross the street in the marked crosswalks in a legal fashion. The goal is to communicate pedestrian safety messages to drivers, pedestrians, media representatives and other observers in a fun and friendly way. Members of the organized group carry cheerful, non-confrontational signs (provided by PACE) with educational and advocacy messages. Crosswalk actions can involve as few as 10 or more than 40 people.
Spread the word to your School of Building Arts colleagues and encourage participation. I imagine that pedestrian safety and motorist education on MLK might be concerns shared by Eichberg inhabitants.
