The fact that pedestrian deaths are up 100% suggest it is the whole city. Drivers need to slow down.

We should design our streets so that driving slower comes naturally. I'm no traffic engineer, but I've read good things about roundabouts, regular speed bumps, lower speed limits, and deliberately inducing more congestion. None of which are popular with drivers, but fuck popularity; lives are at stake.

Plus we need a decent network of protected bike lanes that folks will actually use because it's actually useful.

And universal sidewalk coverage.
