I saw this sign at Fell and Broderick on my way to pick up my son, today. The woman who was killed at this intersection was Melissa Hope. She was 24. She died in September but this is the first time I noticed the sign.
This is why Jon and I started this project. We do not want the next memorial to be on Monterey Blvd. The chances of it being a memorial for someone we know, someone in our own homes is too high
Friends of Monterey is primarily about finding ways to improve our street. More than that, though, we hope that FOM can be a way to help people from all over the City express their desire for a calmer, more sane and livable place. Everyone of us represents and is represented by our wonderful city. Every person killed on our streets is someone we should keep in our thoughts and remember for being one of us.
Please. Slow down. Work for a better Monterey. Work for a better San Francisco. We do not need another roadside memorial. We have enough.
