We’re trying to get the word out at Los Angeles Walks and Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition about volunteering for the 2013 Bike and Ped Count on September 10 and 14. Biking and walking make up 19% of the trips in the county but only 1% of the transportation funding… and 39% of the crashes. Meaning that the more we can demonstrate this kind of activity is happening, the more likely we are to get bike and walking projects funded that make the streets safer. The city counts the cars every single day but the only way to get accurate counts for cyclists and walkers is through this volunteer effort!
Volunteers are needed in Lincoln Heights, Boyle Heights, Echo Park, Northeast LA and other parts of the city. Click on the link below to sign up.
