As my daughter Andrea and I sat in over an hour of traffic last year to get to her school 16 miles away in Annapolis, she turned to me and said: “Dad, if we’d ridden our bikes, we’d be there by now.”
Traffic Congestion has been ranked as a major issue facing Maryland. So who is directly addressing all this traffic congestion? No one really – traffic engineers tinker with it, only looking at vehicle speeds and volume without much regard to the impact on our collective quality of life when speed and volume is the primary focus. Others look at safety. Where are the goals with real, tangible and accountable benchmarks to hold our collective feet to the fire? Are we keeping our promises to our children in giving them a better future? That's why we want to see Bike Maryland not only succeed, but do it in a big way. Despite the hurting car industry, Less Cars are truely in all our long term best interests.
