BROOKLYN - AARP says many Brooklyn roads are dangerous for older pedestrians and is calling for safer streets.

To make their point, AARP has begun a survey to pinpoint the most dangerous intersections. As part of the effort, Sen. Martin Malavé Dilan (D-Brooklyn) is also sponsoring a bill to help make crosswalks safer for seniors.

Advocates say the ultimate goal is to have a bill passed that will require the Department of Transportation to take into account bicyclists and pedestrians whenever streets are built or reconstructed.
