New Yorkers Deliver Over 1,300 Postcards to Governor Cuomo Asking for Dedicated Pedestrian and Bicycle Funds

Today, advocates from New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT) decided to test out how safe it is to walk and bike (just kidding) the halls of the State Capitol building in Albany. With panniers overflowing with postcards to the Governor asking for dedicated funding in the Executive Budget it seemed a good sign that the gang was only stopped by press, not police or armed guards.

The true test of safety, however, will come on Tuesday, January 21, when Governor Cuomo unveils his Executive Budget. In a state with the worst record in the nation for pedestrian and bicycling safety, will the Governor heed the call to dedicate funds exclusively for pedestrian and bicycling safety infrastructure?
