Dear Editor:

RE: “Check your dome,” Sept. 26 issue

Thanks to Lizzie Lacey for her great coverage of the Sept. 14 “Kick-off” of the new City College/East Village Traffic Safety Project.

As a City College student ambassador I welcome this project and was pleased that it is getting media attention. The purpose of this project is to prevent pedestrian and bicyclist traffic deaths and injuries. I would like to extend my gratitude to San Diego City College for allowing me the opportunity to assist in this most needed community effort.

Also, we are glad to have East Village Community residents, San Diego High School and Garfield High School starting to engage in this endeavor.

As a San Diego City College student, I have had my own problems bike riding near campus and it is very dangerous for all of us.

I encourage San Diego City College students to get involved with upcoming events that Shontey Hambrick, Institute for Public Strategies organizer, has planned for this school year to ensure this project’s success.

To volunteer or share in focus groups, ideas, experiences and other safety needs, please contact Shontey Hambrick at [email protected] or talk with me when we’re doing the Project tables on campus.
