Circulate San Diego and coalition partners submitted a letter with comments and recommended changes to the Proposed MUTCD Amendment. The MUTCD is a document of federal regulations governing the design of every roadway in the United States, requiring that all traffic signs, surface markings, and signals legally conform to national standards. The current iteration bestows serious barriers for our members and the greater bicycling community.
Our Coalition partners are joining a national effort to improve road safety by calling on the Federal Highway Administration to rewrite the technical standards of roadway design. We respectfully request that the FHWA rewrite the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) in a manner that supports safe systems design, so advocates and jurisdictions alike can help build safer streets for all roadway users.
