Welcome new champion – Henrietta

Streets Alive Yarra is building an online record of broad community support for walking, cycling, public transport, trees, and place making. One way that we do this is to have locals stand up as champions for their street or neighbourhood.

Please welcome our newest champion, Henrietta Ebbs – our champion for neighbourhood LAPM area 12 Collingwood.

I was riding along Stanley Street in Collingwood. A driver slowed at the intersection, turning left from Oxford Street into Stanley Street and then continued turning, clipping my bike with his car. He stopped about 5 metres after hitting me. When he got out, I could see that he had headphones in and had been on the phone. He also attempted to gaslight me by saying things like, it wasn’t that bad, your bikes fine, you’re fine.
