Asking the mayor for Bicyclist Awareness Month

Updated 8/27/2010: No response so far to this or to a follow-up email sent later.

A letter emailed to Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett a few minutes ago:

Dear Mayor Corbett:
You can save lives in Cedar Rapids by doing your part to educate the public about bicycle safety and responsible driving.
My letter is prompted by the death a few weeks ago of Susan DeSotel, who was riding her bicycle when she sustained fatal injuries because of a careless driver, and by this article about similar situations and how another mayor stepped up to help protect citizens:
That town’s mayor declared August to be Bicyclist Awareness Month. I am asking you to do the same for September and to do everything you can to promote bicycle safety and safe driving — before, during and after the Mayors’ Bike Ride on Sept. 6.
I look forward to your reply, which I will post along with this letter on my blog at https://bjsmith.wordpress.com.
Thank you.
B.J. Smith
If you would like to contact Mayor Corbett with your own version of this letter, other advice or even a different opinion, here’s his contact information.
