We’re facing opposition to bicycle safety projects like we’ve never seen before.
At a neighborhood meeting on Polk Street last month, more than 300 people showed up to oppose new bike and pedestrian improvements, screaming that parking was more important than your safety.
Since then, the SF Municipal Transportation staff says they’ll go back to the drawing board and that “there may be some trade-offs in terms of some of the safety.”
One person walking or biking is injured on Polk Street every month! And yet, the City thinks it’s ok to trade-off safety. We don’t.
Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is ramping up our work on this campaign, and we need you to be right there with us.
With a gift of $10, $25, $50 or $100 today, the SF Bicycle Coalition will be able to:
In order to be able to do all this, we need to raise $25,000 this spring. Can you help us?
There’s never been a more urgent time to give. If Polk Street safety campaign is lost, other projects are also in jeopardy. Please don’t let that happen.
If you care about the future of our streets, make an investment now in the proven results of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Members like you helped bring about the bike improvements you already love – Valencia, 17th, Fell, Cesar Chavez – through special campaigns like this. Those were extremely hard campaigns. These new ones are even harder.
Thank you for your support in this critical time.
