We are less than one week away from Election Day 2018 –
Vote November 6th
We ask you to join us to VOTE NO on Prop 6!
Just as we are making progress in our campaign to ensure the state always takes bike and pedestrian safety into account in transportation funding, Proposition 6 threatens to tear it all apart. If it passes, Prop 6 will cancel $5.2 billion in funding for desperately needed transportation projects repairing roads across Californiaâ€”thousands of themÂ already underway.Â Thanks to this funding, the 2018 state transportation budget put a greater proportion of funding into transit, walking, and biking thanÂ anyÂ previous state transportation budget.
More than 6,500 projects would come to a halt if Prop 6 passes. Many of these projects are in disadvantaged communities that simply will not see other funding if this funding is canceled. Our crumbling roads will become even more decrepit, not only making it more dangerous to ride a bike but driving up maintenance costs for motorists.
Prop 6 is literally deadly. It threatens thousands of jobs, your public transit system, your safety when you walk and bike, our environment, and our progress toward transportation equity. Please join us, the California Bicycle Coalition and the many local bicycle advocacy organizations that have taken a position, along with hundreds of other organizations across the state in saying no to Prop 6.
Itâ€™s going to take every one of us to defeat the regressive forces that want to gut this vital investment in our stateâ€™s transportation infrastructure.
Protect the investments in safer streets we’ve all voted for; join us in standing up for safe streets.

The League of American Bicyclist reminds us the most important thing is to – make a plan. The best indicator that someone will vote is that they planned to vote.
