Transportation Advocacy Day: Tell Olympia Washington Bikes!

6 Feb

Sharing Wheels is happy to support our state wide advocacy organization, Washington Bikes, and make Washington a better place for cycling.

One very important bill making its way through is HB 6227, puts some teeth into the distracted drivers bill of 2010. You can find out more about this bill at http://wabikes.org/2014/01/23/wabikes-in-olympia-sb-6227-strengthening-washingtons-distracted-driving-law/

With transportation project cost overruns looming, increasing uncertainty about how to fix our bridges and roads, and a growing need to invest in biking and walking statewide, the state legislature needs to hear from YOU.
Join us for Transportation Advocacy Day on Thursday, February 27 to tell Olympia Washington Bikes.
This is your chance to let your elected representatives know that Washingtonians want priorities that:

·      Support balanced revenue solutions to support transit, local governments, and more biking and walking
·      Fix our crumbling infrastructure for real
·      Create healthier communities through transportation investments that foster active and safe cities and towns statewide

The day-long event in Olympia connects you with others who share your transportation priorities for better biking. Be a part of the solution and serve as a citizen lobbyist for the day.

After all, if you won’t do it, who will?

Sign-up today: http://wabikes.org/transportation-advocacy-day/.  Lunch is provided and carpools are available.
