Angelenos Against Gridlock is thrilled Metro is launching a bike safety campaign. You can read more about it here.
Let’s face it: the state of bike safety in Los Angeles County has been pretty abysmal. “I’ve been hit and had my bike ‘totaled’ multiple times,” said David Murphy, President of Angelenos Against Gridlock. “I feel lucky to be alive. Bike safety issues are not some abstract low-priority issue. It’s incredibly important we make the Los Angeles region safer for residents and commuters on bikes.”
When meeting with Metro bike staff in the past, one of the things we encouraged them to do was to use Metro buses for an ad campaign for bike safety, just like Santa Monica Big Blue Bus had done, and which we believe Metro had been considering. We’re thrilled that they’re doing so.
