We have just ONE week left in the 2014 legislative session to get our Vulnerable User bill passed. The Senate has pulled its weight, now it's time for the House to get moving.
This is the fifth year the Vulnerable User bill has been proposed. Wedon't want to hear that the House "ran out of time" yet again to vote on this important safety measure for cyclists and pedestrians. And not having a VU bill, year after year, is hurting our bike friendly state ranking.
Please email or call your State Representative and House Leadership--Reps. Brendan Sharkey and Joe Aresimowicz-- today to call the Vulnerable User bill, SB 336, for a vote.
We need safer streets this year. From 2006 to 2012, more than 10,000 pedestrians and cyclists were injured or killed on Connecticut roads.
Speaking up makes all the difference, and the more of us who do, the stronger our bike ped community is. This is no time to sit on the sidelines!
