Flowers & Such: Boston Bike Lanes

I’m Jonathan. I live in Dorchester and ride my bike 12 months a year to Harvard Sq , where I practice architecture.
In an effort to increase the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, this weekend I placed some flowers and cones in the buffer of an unprotected bike lane on Mass Ave at Beacon Street in Boston where young woman was recently killed by a truck driver while riding her bicycle.
The City of Boston has shown a complete lack of will to do what is required to protect the safety of vulnerable road users.
I will use any money raised here to buy flowers and other supplies to execute more interventions along the Mass Ave corridor, the most dangerous stretch of road in the city.
in the unlikely event that I actually raise $1,000, know that there is enough to do on this street for thousands more.
I love this city, and I love the people who ride this city. It’s time that we show the Walsh administration that we are not OK with their indifference.
