Act now to support national Complete Streets

Minnesota just passed a Complete Streets law.
Now, let's take it national!
From the National Complete Streets Coalition:
Today, the National Complete Streets Coalition is thrilled to join with Transportation
for America, America Bikes, and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership
to bicycle down Pennsylvania Avenue, America's main street, and publicly
express our thanks to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood for all his hard work
to make sure that walking and biking are on equal footing with other modes for
safety, convenience, and accessibility.
DOT's new policy is a step forward, but if we're going to make our streets
safer for all users, we need Congress to change federal law to make complete
streets the standard - not the exception. Only through a strong federal
complete streets policy can we end the project-by-project fight for safer roads
for people who are bicycling, walking, and taking public transportation.
Contact your Members of Congress today!
Tell your representatives that you value streets designed for all modes - that includes bicycling, as well as walking and taking public transportation.
The Complete Streets Act would ensure that future federally funded
transportation projects take into account the needs of everyone using the roads
- old and young, bicycle riders and drivers, pedestrians and public
Thank you in advance for taking action!
