Remembering Victims of Traffic Crashes

On Sunday, November 19th, we recognized World Day of Remembrance for victims of traffic crashes. So far in 2023, over 2,000 lives have been lost to, or seriously injured by, a traffic crash in Massachusetts — and this doesn't include the countless friends and family affected by the loss of a loved one. Events across the state honored the lives lost and impacted, and brought attention to the issue of road safety. A number of news pieces covered the events; here are just a few:

Late last month, LivableStreets testified at the State House testifying during a Transportation Committee Hearing. We sat on a panel with partners at ACLU MA and the National Consumer Law Center in support of two bills to end debt-based drivers license suspensions. Our panel was one part of a broader testimony campaign that included statements from someone impacted by this unjust practice, the Committee for Public Counsel Services, the Massachusetts Bar Association, the Fines and Fees Justice Center, and the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action.

We also both testified on behalf of a number of road safety groups about key equity provisions included in Representative Owen’s automated enforcement bill and highlighted further potential equity provisions.

Check out the hearing here.
