Don’t let the Senate strip bike and pedestrian funding

Jackson.07.08.3

Senator Coburn of Oklahoma is planning to ask Congress to eliminate the federal Transportation Enhancements program – the primary source for nearly all dedicated federal bike and pedestrian funding. His proposal will likely come up for a vote in a matter of days.

The program he hopes to zero out represents less than two percent of all federal transportation spending and has funded 20 years of sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes, and trails. Eliminating that 2 percent is dangerously out of step with the facts: 14 percent of all traffic fatalities are people on foot or bike, and 12 percent of all trips are taken on foot or bike.

Ask your senators to defend the little money we invest in bike and pedestrian funding.
