NPC Executive Director Beth Brainard attended the League of American Bicyclists National Bike Summit in Washington D.C. this month. The purpose of the annual summit is to bring together bike/ped advocacy groups to share ideas and information, and most importantly, to call on national legislators regarding pertinent transportation issues. This year there were two asks. The first was for a commitment to include multi-modal transportation in any infrastructure projects proposed. The second was to ask U.S. Representatives to sponsor the Vision Zero Act, which creates a voluntary incentive program to promote and support local innovation in traffic safety.
