Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday. After celebrating Thanksgiving, hearing all about Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, we know you've had a lot going on in the last few days. A lot of folks are selling you things. A lot of folks are asking for things.
But we really need your help with this one.
A huge part of what we do is advocate for bicycle friendly laws to be passed in our state. We work closely with other advocacy groups and lawmakers to bring bike friendly bills to the table each year. Despite multiple attempts, we still do not have a 3 foot law on the books.
As we head into 2018, we are making it our mission to get a 3 foot passing law to the Governor's desk. As a part of an omnibus traffic safety bill, we're working towards seeing this and other bike friendly measures passed in the current legislative session. Currently the bill package plays a waiting game in the Transportation Committee. As things progress, we'll keep you posted! But know that we are fighting for this one as hard as we can.
But to do that we need your help!
