KMPO Seeks Non-Motorized Plan Info

KMPO is developing a region-wide Non-Motorized Transportation Plan and we’re asking for your input on it through a quick online survey. The plan will assist in the development of a bicycle and pedestrian network within the Kootenai region. It will identify policies, goals and projects, and opportunities to provide facilities like pathways, sidewalks, and bike parking. The survey asks a variety of questions, such as how often you walk or ride your bike, where you walk or ride to, and what would get you to walk or bicycle more often. Click here for the survey, then hit the link at the top of the KMPO home page/Kootenai MPO. More here.

DFO: HBO friend Jeff Selle is one of the key people involved in the Kootenai Metropolitan Planning Organization. Which has become a major player in the local transportation planning. Please take a moment to fill out the survey in the link above and send it to KMPO.

Mom Faces Charge In Car Seat Death

Item: Post Falls woman faces vehicular homicide charge as a result of improperly installed car seat/Kootenai MPO

More Info: Spokane County prosecutors charged a Post Falls woman with vehicular homicide Tuesday in the death of her infant daughter, who was severely injured by a car’s airbag while riding in a rear-facing car seat in Spokane. If convicted, it could be the first time in Washington a parent has been held accountable for the death of a child stemming from an improperly installed car seat, prosecutors and police say.

Question: Is this an excessive charge by the Spokane County prosecutors against a grieving mother?
