Oh my god, I had no idea! How long has Council & City Staff known that we have these injury risk stats? How long do we have to wait for the powers that be to realize this should be the NUMBER ONE priority !?! We all understand there are limited resources, but seriously, we're spending funds on statues and the likes ahead of being able to safely walk/cycle our streets all the while knowing these stats? It just boggles the mind !!! Do our decision-makers not understand that one of the reasons more cars are on the roads these days (and why motorists for the most part want roads repaved) is because people don't choose to walk/cycle because they don't feel safe. Do we really need to waste precious resources (time and money) begging Council for something that we all long for? Knowing these stats, and not acting immediately by taking pro-active measures (ahead of all the other "nice to haves"), just completely defies logic.
