Memorial Today.

MEMORIAL TO BE HELD FOR PEDESTRIAN HOPE MILLER, KILLED BY A CAR ON DEADLY
HOUSTON STREET

After a third death in the Houston Street construction zone, Time’s Up!
remembers the lives lost and pushes the City to take action.


HOUSTON STREET MEMORIAL AND SPEAK OUT
Tuesday, Oct 2nd, 6:30pm at Houston St. and 6th Ave.
Elected Officials, Pedestrian and Public Space Advocates have been invited
to attend.

placed at crash site

New York, NY (October 2, 2007) - Time's Up! will hold a memorial to
commemorate Hope Miller, 28, and raise awareness of the City's failure to
address unsafe conditions for cyclists and pedestrians on Houston Street.
Miller was struck and killed on Houston Street at 6th Avenue on Tuesday,
September 25th by a hit-and-run driver allegedly fleeing a previous accident.

Hope Miller’s death is the third known fatality since June, 2005 to occur
in the area of Houston Street undergoing construction. Cyclist Andrew
Morgan, 25, was killed by a furniture truck turning on the corner of
Houston and Elizabeth Street on June 22, 2005 and cyclist Derek Lake, 23,
was crushed beneath the wheels of a tractor-trailer at Houston and
LaGuardia Place on June 26, 2006.

Uneven pavement, unclear lane delineations, improperly placed metal
plates, and absent safety workers have been a consistent problem since the
construction began over two years ago. The DOT plans for Houston include
traffic signals and turning bays that will facilitate faster vehicular
traffic and result in an even more dangerous street. The DOT also
abandoned their ten-year-old plan for protected bike lanes on Houston.

”The City needs to switch their priorities from accommodating cars and
trucks on Houston Street to protecting cyclists and pedestrians,” says
Bill DiPaola, Executive Director of Time’s Up! “The City’s reneging on the
10-year promise for safe bike lanes on a newly paved, eight lane Houston
Street, is a decision that will continue to endanger pedestrians and
cyclists.”

Thank you for posting this. Many schoolmates of Hopes, including me, from back at Minnesota State University Moorhead are sadden by her death and will miss her greatly. She was such a great presence in our small, midwestern theatre department and we never forgot her energy, even when she was far away.
