Plusurbia’s Manuel de Lemos and David Soto authored a piece regarding the high traffic volumes and speeds in Rincón, Puerto Rico, for El Coquí of Rincón Magazine. The article, “Rethinking Rincón’s Pace,” calls for rethinking mobility in Rincón. It advocates for proper investments in multimodal streets and emphasizes a community’s need for access to safe streets, free from the risk of transit at dangerous speeds, and with universal access to people of all ages and abilities.
Unfortunately, the need to mitigate the danger from speeding vehicles was highlighted when a tragic accident occurred in the area on June 10, 2020, in which one person died when a conductor lost control of their vehicle and crashed into an eating establishment where the victim was seated.
