Find out how committed the City Council Candidates are towards your safety
Biking and walking are political issues. When you choose to get around by foot or by bike, you are addressing critically important issues: personal health, air quality, oil dependence, economics, infrastructure, and safety.
Each election cycle, we want to make sure that voters understand issues that are important to them. In the case of street safety, where 25% of traffic fatalities and major injuries are pedestrians, decisions that our City Councilpeople make, or don’t make, may literally save their lives.
While BikePGH is not allowed to endorse candidates, we can educate our 3,300 Donor-Members, 18.6K Facebook followers, 19.8K Twitter followers, and 22K subscribers to our email newsletter about how the candidates will approach road safety if voters choose them.
Be sure to Bike Walk Vote the Primary on Tuesday, May 21
