Educational Bike/Pedestrian Signage

$570 of $500 goal

Raised by 17 people in 10 months
Ithaca is a lovely city to live in and a great place to raise a family. Unfortunately it could be a safer place for pedestrians and cyclists. Here's one example: Even though state law requires motorists to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, this rarely happens downtown. We know of many accidents that have happened in Ithaca in our 20 years there, and many could have been avoided with better education, awareness and signage. 

I will be creating signage and developing a PR campaign to educate motorists and residents in general about the importance of respecting state laws, and hope to raise awareness amongst the city leaders, which will hopefully result in increased awareness, compliance with the laws, and police enforcement.

Dear supporters,

Signs should be coming in a week. If you have a recommendation for Ithaca intersections that need attention, please email me your suggestions at aheurich@gmail.com. On my list already are Cayuga/Cascadilla, Buffalo/Taughannock Blvd, Seneca/Plain, Seneca/Corn, Green/Corn, and Green/Geneva. I will still have signs remaining.

Volume purchasing brought down the cost of individual signs to around $7 each, and I'll soon be looking for suggested sign locations after I exhaust my top intersection choices. We can also do a little rally on the commons if we want...

Dear Friends,

I am raising money to make signs as part of an educational campaign to help make Ithaca a more pedestrian and bicycle-friendly city. I will use all donations to print signs that motorists and community members will see.

Best,
Armin
