Circulate San Diego wrote a letter in response to comments regarding distracted pedestrians made at the Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee meeting today. Circulate does not support the criminalization of pedestrians that would result from any ordinance targeting distracted pedestrians. Every road user should be aware and safe, and Circulate supports education, encouragement, and awareness programs that promote safe walking, cycling, and driving. The City’s Vision Zero and Climate Action Plan goals will be met through a commitment to traffic safety improvements and encouraging safe walking, cycling, and driving habits.
