Together with national and state partner advocacy organizations, we are advocating for laws, policies, and plans that will improve bike travel safety, infrastructure and amenities.
How can you be most effective when taking action? Here are five tips
Transportation Bill: Tell Congress to Fund Biking and Walking
We all want safe and connected biking and walking infrastructure, and COVID-19 has proven that it is more necessary than ever. We need you to tell your members of Congress to fund biking and walking in the next wave of stimulus funding and reauthorization of the federal transportation bill.
If you know of any bicycle-related bills in your state that need larger support or opposition, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can work with you to set up an action and spread the word in the bike travel community.
Establishing a defined minimum safe passing distance
, whether three, four, or five feet, is important to hold motorists accountable when they pass bicyclists too closely or hit them. Passing the law
is the first step – then it is up to each state to educate motorists and ensure consistent enforcement of the law.
Most distracted driving laws
ban texting while driving, but more states
are now expanding their laws to any hand-held cell phone use, with exceptions for emergencies and law enforcement. We’re working with the League of American Bicyclists to take action on distracted driving, with a focus on helping to pass state laws
that ban hand-held phone use.
