At least 18 Greater Cincinnati pedestrians and cyclists were struck and killed by cars in 2020, a toll advocates say is indicative of the need for better safety infrastructure for walkers and bikers.

Bicycle and pedestrian safety advocates will gather on the Newport Southbank Bridge April 7 to hold a day of remembrance for those lost, and to push for better safety measures to prevent future tragedies. Among those will be a dashboard that will show vital information about pedestrian and cyclist safety.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to talk about the day of remembrance and bicycle and pedestrian safety in general are Tri-State Trails Director Wade Johnston; Vision Zero NKY's Jody Robinson; and Shawna Rodriguez, whose daughter Gabby Rodriguez was hit and killed by cars in Westwood in 2018.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
