Grady students rally for safer streets on anniversary of bicyclist’s death

Grady High School students will bring attention to the need for safer streets Tuesday, the anniversary of the death of a student who was killed while riding her bike.

The “Rally for Safe Streets” will take place at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the high school auditorium. 

It is organized by the Grady Pedestrian Safety Coalition, a group led by students who want to make streets near schools safer for bicyclists and other forms of alternative transportation. 

Alexia Hyneman, a Grady freshman, died three years ago when she was hit by a car as she tried to cross the intersection at 10th Street and Monroe Drive

The rally will be attended by Jennifer Ide, a member of the Atlanta City Council, and Alexia’s father, Thomas Hyneman, according to a city council news release.
