Coalition Letter: SANDAG Adoption of Vision Zero

Circulate San Diego and its coalition partners submitted a letter urging SANDAG to adopt a Vision Zero policy. Metropolitan planning organizations like SANDAG are uniquely positioned to embrace a regional Vision Zero policy and end traffic deaths on our roadways. No single jurisdiction can eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries alone. SANDAG should adopt a vision zero policy that encourages jurisdictions to adopt Vision Zero commitments and plans by requiring such plans for discretionary grants and providing funding to help jurisdictions create vision zero plans.

Traffic deaths and serious injuries are preventable. By adopting Vision Zero, SANDAG has the opportunity to play a critical regional role in saving lives. Read the full letter here [pdf].

Coalition Letter: Housing Supply and Affordability Act

Circulate San Diego joined a coalition letter in support of the Housing Supply and Affordability Act. This bill would provide $1.5 billion in federal grants to local governments to assist them in removing barriers to housing production. The bill also focuses on developing policies that help avoid the displacement of local residents. Local governments that promise to put housing near jobs and transit will get priority in receiving funding. The letter was organized by Up For Growth and is signed by numerous national and local organizations.

Letter: AB 117 - Electric Bicycle Rebate Program

Circulate San Diego submitted a letter in support of AB 117, which will provide incentives to Californians who purchase electric bicycles. Electric bicycles remove barriers to bicycling, especially for people who are less active, live in hilly areas, or have to travel over longer distances. In addition, electric bicycles enhance Californians’ ability to live car-free, saving them money and eliminating the need for creation of costly parking spaces. With transportation accounting for over 40% of California’s greenhouse gas emissions, this bill provides a much-needed component to a broader solution.

Letter: AB 122 - Legalize Idaho Stops

Circulate San Diego submitted a letter in support of AB 122, which will legalize Idaho stops in California. Idaho stops allow bicyclists to yield at stop signs rather than making a full stop. This common-sense change has been shown to improve bicyclist safety while also allowing cyclists to maintain their momentum while crossing an intersection. Idaho, Oregon, and Delaware all allow Idaho Stops. Idaho stops encourage bicycle use, which helps California to reduce its air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions while encouraging a healthy and active population.
