Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Are You Concerned About Pedestrian Safety?

Alexandria Families For Safe Streets (AFSS) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization. If you are interested in improving pedestrian safety on Alexandria's streets let us know and we can put you on our mailing list. We do not ask anyone for dues, only support in spirit and/or action from our "members."

We have monthly meetings and publish the meeting’s notes so people can be informed about the different pedestrian safety educational programs we do throughout the year as well as about the advocacy work we do with City and State Legislative Policymakers to improve traffic laws and/or improve street engineering changes to slow drivers down and reduce the risk of pedestrian fatalities. Speed kills and too many of us are driving too fast these days. Even though traffic volume is down in this COVID-19 world, pedestrian fatalities and serious injuries were up in 2020.

To learn more about Alexandria Families For Safe Streets please visit our website at https://www.alxffss.org and signup for our email list at the top of the page. Our next meeting is on Tuesday, Jan 19 at 6:30 pm via Zoom. To get the meeting link just signup for our mailing list or email us at: contact@novafss.org

We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to our pedestrian safety advocacy organization … because we are all pedestrians.
