June 16, 2015 – Oregon Walks and our partners are call for action in the City of Portland following a string of pedestrian fatalities in the Portland area. Two weeks after Mayor Charlie Hales called for Vision Zero in response to a fatality and serious injury to people on bicycles, two pedestrians have been killed while using our public streets.

On June 3rd, Thomas Gazzola was hit by a drunk driver who turned into him while he jogged in his neighborhood. And just this Sunday, George Carlson was hit while walking on the sidewalk on the Burnside Bridge. A driver of a car drove onto the sidewalk and killed him and injured Bridget Larrabee.
