Kirkland Pedestrian Safety Programs
The City of Kirkland has gone a long way in promoting pedestrian safety by instituting several pedestrian safety measures including the PedFlag program which places bright yellow or orange flags around crosswalks around town which helps pedestrians to get the attention of motorists when crossing the street. Currently, there are at least 73 PedFlag locations throughout Kirkland.
Kirkland has also installed in-pavement lights or "flashing crosswalks." To date, there have been no pedestrian accidents at locations where lights were flashing when pedestrian crossed.
Kirkland has many restaurants downtown and the police department conducts many emphasis patrol to detect drunk drivers. The police recommend that people stay safe and use one of the many taxis available in downtown Kirkland or appoint a designated driver if someone has been drinking.
Representative Roger Goodman, D-Kirkland, has been working with Governor Inslee in strengthening drunk driving laws by proposing minimum jail times for second and third offenders and requiring offenders to enroll in substance abuse programs requiring them to take frequent breathalyzer tests.
Despite the best efforts of the City of Kirkland and local law enforcement agencies, accidents do happen. Sometimes, car accidents are as a result of distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or driving too fast for prevailing road conditions.
