Action Alert: Vulnerable Road Users Bill May Die In Committee

This is it. On June 1st, our Vulnerable Road Users bill will die in the Joint Committee on Transportation unless we can convince the committee to report it out. We’re not the only ones who think this bill is needed to protect bicyclists and pedestrians – many of you have voiced your support and so have WalkBoston, Massachusetts Public Health Association, Conservation Law Foundation, Boston Cyclists Union, and Transportation for Massachusetts.

Please call or email your State Senator and State Representative right now and tell them you need their support TODAY to protect vulnerable road users. We need each and every one of you to take action now, or this bill will die and we will have to start all over again next January:

  1. Call or email your State Senator and ask him or her to ask Senator McGee, Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Transportation to report favorably on H3079.
