I’m proud to announce that my Denver personal injury law firm is sponsoring the newly revised Traffic Violence Report in Streetsblog Denver.

In case you don’t know about Streetsblog, here is their mission:

Streetsblog connects people to information about how to reduce dependence on cars and improve conditions for walking, biking, and transit. Since 2006, our reporters have broken important stories about efforts to prevent pedestrian injuries and deaths, build out bicycle networks, and make transit more useful. Our writing raises the profile of these issues with policy makers and makes arcane topics like parking requirements and induced traffic accessible to a broad audience.

The organization now has reporters dedicated to covering transit issues in New York City, Massachusetts, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Denver and the state of California.

I started my partnership with Streetsblog Denver several years ago, when I wrote an article about their goals in Denver. I also shared my Denver Accident Map with them, and they have used it to inform several of their stories.

Now, I’m proud to sponsor the Traffic Violence Report for two reasons: 1) I want to contribute to Streetsblog’s ongoing success and, 2) I believe it is critical for our citizens to understand that every choice we make for the future of our city can swing us toward or away from safe streets for all. If we want to grow in population yet remain an auto-centric society, our quality of life is going to plummet. I would love to see Colorado become a much more biker- and pedestrian-friendly state!
