Arlington County Needs a Comprehensive Bicycle, Pedestrian, Motorist Safety Program, ASAP

Hello, Yupette,

I live in Douglas Park and I was not surprised by the bicyclist-motor vehicle accident at the intersection of South Walter Reed Drive and South Four Mile that resulted in the bicyclist being killed after he ran into a car on Four Mile Run Access Road coming off South Walter Red Drive hill.

Reckless behavior by bicyclists and pedestrians is epidemic in this area.

County Government must IMMEDIATELY begin a comprehensive county-wide pedestrian, motorist, and bicycle safety program, before there are more fatalities. The next fatality or fatalities will be bicyclists hitting a pedestrian or pedestrians at high speed.

I will not vote for incumbents running for political office who allowed this situation to develop. Arlington County Government is totally reactive and this accident is proof.
