National spotlight on bicycling and pedestrian accommodation
|Contact Your Governor Today|| |
|Support the U.S. DOT Policy Statement on Bicycling Accommodations|
On March 15, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced the Departments' new Bicycle Policy Statement that heralds the end of second-class treatment for cyclists.
The statement reaffirms the language that is written in the current federal surface transportation law and demonstrates his leadership in this area. This is an important step in completing bicycle and pedestrian networks all over the country.
Please contact your Governor today to urge them to ensure that your state department of transportation is following the letter of the law. Thank you for your assistance in this important matter.
