From Jason at ATXBS.com
I know Critical Mass and the group rides are fun and all, but if you want to ACTUALLY make a difference in City of Austin bike policy, here's an quick way to do it. The City of Austin (specifically the APD) is conducting a 2-week long survey of local residents regarding what we feel are the most pressing driving safety concerns in our community. The question that really popped out at me was the one that asked me to rate the following statement on a scale of strongly disagree to strongly agree: "Austin drivers are courteous to pedestrians." It also has several comment fields. Though it seems that the survey was written with a very automobile-centric mindset I think it'd be incredible if we could get a few thousand cyclists to fill it out and make known what OUR big worries are. Check out their press release if you want to read the official words about the survey, or just cruise on over to the survey proper to get it over with.
Deadline is June 15th! Don't slack!
I filled this out and and so should you. Thanks for the heads up Jason.
