Urge Your Supervisor to Support Vision Zero Funding!

As the Supervisor budget process lumbers on, your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and our Vision Zero coalition partners have been working to ensure that the Vision Zero commitment made by the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors stays strong. In particular, we’ve asked them to help restore the funding gap created by the delay for the Vehicle License Fee. Without this funding, critical projects to improve the safety of our streets will be delayed.

Unfortunately, we just learned that City leaders are wavering on their commitment to your safety. Please call your Supervisor today or tomorrow and let them know how important funding Vision Zero is to you! It’s particularly important that our Vision Zero leaders here from you! This includes Supervisors Kim, Mar, Avalos and Weiner, as well asĀ our Supervisors on the Budget Committee!
