Tim Courtney is with a group called the "Traffic Violence Rapid Response Team." He said they formed the group to raise awareness about pedestrian and cyclist death and planned this vigil to highlight what happened and call for safety changes.
"We need traffic calming safety improvements on our streets and we need that now, soon," said Courtney. "Not five years from now ten years from now whatever. We need it done before another person is killed by a driver."

“From the outside these may almost look like two different companies at work: Industry Leader Lego is a blockbuster machine, with Friends, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. Meanwhile “Quirky Startup Lego” expands the public’s notions of the brand with ReBrick, Architecture, Life of George, and Cuusoo. At the core though, they’re both motivated by the same two things; first, encouraging play and creative expression by as many people, in as many ways, as possible.” - Tim Courtney, LEGO IDEAS
