Bipartisan Safe Streets Act Introduced

U.S. Representatives Doris Matsui (D-CA) and David Joyce (R-OH) announced their reintroduction of HR 2071, The Safe Streets Act, to ensure that streets and intersections are designed with adequate pedestrian safeguards in mind. This important bill would ensure that future transportation investments made by state Departments of Transportation and Metropolitan Planning Organizations create appropriate and safe transportation facilities for all those traveling on our streets – whether walking, bicycling, driving, taking public transportation, and regardless of age or ability.
