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.
