Action needed to support cycletracks in California

Our bill to legalize cycle tracks in California is headed to its first hearing Wednesday April 24.

AB 1193 builds on last year’s AB 819 which required Caltrans to develop an experimental process for cycle tracks and other non-approved designs. In response, they propose to give local agencies the authority to approve exceptions to the HDM on their own. This process meets our goal of making it easy for local agencies to build cycle tracks.

AB 1193 ensures that Caltrans follows through on their proposal and that the process works for local agencies. The legislature needs to hear from you! Please send a letter. You can use this sample letter, or research the bill on the government’s site and our own page and compose your own letter.

Send your letter in an email to Misa Yokoi-Shelton by Friday, April 19.
