In the last 15 years, 76,000 Americans have been killed while walking or crossing a street – too many of our roads are built for cars only.
But thousands of people are stepping up to make biking and walking safe. Rep. Earl Blumenauer introduced a piece of legislation that could set aside $2 billion for grants to fund safe networks for biking and walking in communities all across the country. And Secretary Ray LaHood just joined the fight by issuing a directive that makes safe walking and biking a priority for the U.S. Department of Transportation!
Help us keep the pressure on! Urge your representative to co-sponsor the Active Community Transportation Act.
