    I urge the council to read this report carefully, and note that despite the noble efforts of Oakland's Department of Transportation, traffic fatalities are actually rising in recent years rather than falling! Please give OakDOT the support it needs to hire sufficient staff so that this sorely-needed safety improvements can happen faster. It's been five years since the 14th Street project got funding, and construction hasn't even begun yet - three people have died in the project area! We MUST find ways to move faster.
