3. Look Both Ways Before Crossing the Street
Bellevue is partnering with
Together for Safer Roads
and undergoing a citywide review of near-miss incidents involving pedestrians, cyclists, and other cars. Data from 80 public video cameras provided 34,000 hours of footage that will be processed using AI and machine learning to determine which intersections are most dangerous and how to improve safety.
4. We’re Saying “No”
The Bellevue Chamber has made public its opposition to I-976, the $30 car tab initiative. Chamber leaders made clear that the public concern over the motor vehicle excise tax valuation schedule currently being used by Sound Transit is genuine, and the price tag for the average taxpayer should not be easily dismissed. However, the Chamber says that I-976 is not the right solution.
