NEWS FLASH ! – GOOD NEWS FROM U.S.CONGRESS

“Complete the Streets” bill 

A new federal transportation authorization bill will include a measure for the safe accommodation of all users, including bicyclists and pedestrians, in federally funded street projects. The bill directs the U.S. Secretary of Transportation to create national standards for the safe accommodation of all road users. The bill is now awaiting passage of the full Fiscal Year 2012 budget. Charlotte has been ahead of the curve with its own version – the “Urban Street Design Guidelines” -(passed by City Council with strong CABA support) –  .
