Save Bike Lanes on South Flores



Time is running our for you to make a difference for people who walk or ride bikes across the U.S.  

The U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) has released proposed safety measures that have no goal, no accountability, and no attempt to reduce the 16% of all fatal crashes that include people who walk and bike.
Your comments count: Tell US DOT that we can't turn a blind eye to the 45,000 bicyclists injured and 5,000 cyclists and pedestrians killed on U.S. roadways each year.

Only a few days remain in the commenting period, and the last few days are often when a negative contingent of comments can gain momentum and overwhelm the positive side. Let's keep the momentum on this issue in  favor of safety-- over 10,000 people have already asked for bike/ped safety measures, and Congress is taking notice.

As we all know, bicycle and pedestrian deaths are not a mere statistic-- each one was someone's son or daughter, someone's mother or father, someone's coworker, someone's friend. Having no standard is not working: we must have a national goal to make biking and walking a safe transportation option. We can't keep losing our fellow riders and fellow Texans this way.

US DOT is asking for comments on their proposed safety measures-- and they need to hear from you. Visit the League of American Bicyclists' Action Center here to submit your comments. Please endorse the League's comments or submit your own. The commenting period ends June 30.
