Bicycling and Walking in the United States: 2012 Benchmarking Report shows that increasing bicycling and walking is clearly in the public interest.
Bike Walk Connecticut and its members are using the data to make the case for funding bicycling and pedestrian improvements in Connecticut.
The report offers solid, easy to understand explanations for the importance of bike/ped funding to communities, describes good project outcomes and the bad things (injuries, deaths) that could have been avoided through bicycle and pedestrian improvements. Take a look and talk to your local elected officials about it.
You can get the report and online analysis here.
