To Mayor Wheeler & Portland City Council,

Last Thursday we lost yet another life in a preventable crash as a woman crossed the street at the intersection of SE 148th and Stark. SE Stark is one of our most dangerous corridors in the city, and there have been at least four deaths of pedestrians and one person driving between SE 146th and the city limits since November 2016.

Because of dangerous street design, high speeds, and infrequent safe crossings, we know that we will continue to see deaths on Outer Stark if we don’t act now. In order to meet the City’s stated goal of zero fatalities by 2025, we need to respond quickly to address known safety concerns in our city.

We ask that Portland City Council take immediate steps to ensure the community does not lose another life in a preventable crash on Outer SE Stark:
