Make Queens Safer was formed by concerned parents out of empathy for families coping with the loss or injury of loved ones due to reckless driving, unsafe street design, and lack of enforcement of traffic laws.
We are neighbors who seek to
- develop a strong community-based movement that sees pedestrian and cyclist fatalities as intolerable and 100% preventable;
- fight for safer street designs and stronger enforcement of traffic laws;
- demand that drivers in our communities take responsibility for the safety of their neighbors; and
- provide resources and education materials to our communities on driver, pedestrian, and cyclist safety on our overcrowded streets.
We welcome volunteers who are interested in participating in our efforts. We are also interested in partnering with community groups throughout Queens and across the region.
