|Last year, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg called traffic safety a “national crisis” and said the Biden Administration would release a National Roadway Safety Strategy by January 2022.
With only a few days left, the League is eagerly awaiting the administration’s strategy for safety. As president, Biden and his team can help us accelerate change on the ground.
The League wants to see a National Roadway Safety Strategy that prioritizes safety for the most vulnerable road users like people who bike, walk, and use wheelchairs.
We want a strategy that fixes existing streets by redesigning them for connectivity and slower speeds, while ensuring new roads are built as Complete Streets designed for all the different ways people get around — like biking!
We want a future that makes biking safer, easier, and more accessible for more people.
