California Voters Want Safer Streets!

The California Bicycle Coalition has released a statewide poll in which voters were asked how they’d like to see local and state transportation departments build streets.  Nearly two-thirds of survey respondents said they would bike more often if they had protected bike lanes on streets in their neighborhoods that made them feel less threatened by traffic. Close to half stated that they supported funding for alternative modes of transportation equally or more important than funding for roads and freeways.
