Mayor Ted Wheeler announced at today’s City Council meeting that Portland will join a global movement by marking November 17th as World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
“We call on the City of Portland to expedite major changes in order to slow speeds and increase safety for all on outer SE Division St.”
“My hope is that everyone who sees these empty shoes will be reminded that someone still mourns a person who no longer walks among us.”
A new organization for people whose lives have been changed by traffic violence will hold its first public event this weekend.
