Tell Caltrans to Prioritize Safety for Biking and Walking

Caltrans needs to stop catering to the needs of cars to zip through our neighborhoods, and instead prioritize safety and access for all street users.

Join us in calling on Caltrans to create strong traffic analysis guidelines that pave the way for bike- and pedestrian-friendly streets.

Caltrans should issue a clear directive to its engineers on how they assess the impact of traffic on our communities, to create streets that reduce car travel and greenhouse gas emissions.

Our petition calls on Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty to show leadership and ensure that Caltrans creates strong traffic analysis guidelines—with the help of stakeholders like CalBike—that pave the way for bike- and walk-friendly streets. Read more detailed background about this petition.

 

PETITION TO CALTRANS DIRECTOR MALCOLM DOUGHERTY:
MOVE FORWARD WITH STRONG TRAFFIC ANALYSIS GUIDELINES

As people who care about biking and walking in California, we urge Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty to move forward immediately with creating strong traffic analysis guidelines that require state highways to be analyzed and designed to reduce vehicle travel and mirror VMT thresholds in the Office of Planning and Research’s new CEQA traffic analysis guidelines.

We need strong prescriptive guidelines that make clear that Caltrans engineers should transform how they evaluate and redesign state highways to be complete streets rather than high-speed arterials that divide neighborhoods.Level of service is an outdated way of analyzing traffic impacts on our communities and our environment. Our priority as a state should be to reduce vehicle travel and greenhouse gases and build healthy communities where it is easy and safe to walk and ride bicycles.
