Tell USDOT: Build inclusive and safe transportation options for all users — For the first time ever, the U.S. Department of Transportation has proposed requirements for how states and metro areas will have to measure traffic congestion. These new requirements will help us all understand what federal transportation dollars actually accomplish—an absolutely worthwhile goal. However, as it’s currently written the proposal would measure success in outdated ways, prioritizing fast driving speeds over the needs of other transportation users, including bicyclists and pedestrians. Tell USDOT to improve its proposed rule. Add your name to our petition and we’ll hand deliver it straight to the desk of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
