Mayor Gloria Issues Statement on Recent Cyclist Deaths Throughout City

MAYOR REITERATES COMMITMENT TO KEEP ALL ROAD USERS SAFE, PURSUE NEEDED BIKE SAFETY INFRASTRUCTURE

SAN DIEGO – After an alarming number of bicyclists have been struck and killed by motorists in recent weeks, Mayor Todd Gloria today issued this statement:

“One cyclist death is too many – particularly when we know it’s preventable.

“My administration has taken a number of steps to help reach our Vision Zero goal of eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on our roads, including establishing a new team to create bike lanes more quickly, joining the National Association of City Transportation Officials to learn and adopt best practices, and working with SANDAG to reduce the time it takes to process a bike infrastructure permit by 75%.

“Saving lives should not be controversial, and my administration will continue to work to make sure all who use our roads, regardless of method of travel, are safe.”
