Colorado Safe Routes to Schools Bill in Danger: Need your Help ASAP

vertical-response-header-blank

ACTION ALERT:

Colorado Safe Routes to School in Danger

Safe Routes to SchoolPlease call or email your state senator TODAY and ask them to support House Bill 1003—Safe Routes to School. If the bill does not pass the Colorado Senate, the Safe Routes to School program will die.

We just received notice that the first Senate vote could be as soon as Wednesday. The legislative session ends in just one week and each vote is critical.

Now is the time for every Colorado Senator to hear that child safety and health is important to Colorado. Please ask them to stand up and support safe routes to school.

STEP 1: Find your Senate district

Find your Colorado Senate District Number by entering your home address at openstates.org. Select your Colorado State Senator to see their phone and email.

STEP 2: Call or email your State Senator

Ask them to please support House Bill 1003-Safe Routes to School. Briefly share why you think children’s safety and health are important and include your address. More info here. Even if it is after hours, you can still call and leave a voice mail.

STEP 3: Ask your friends and family to call

We don’t issue action alerts unless it really matters. Will you please take a minute to send an email or place a call? Without this bill, the statewide safe routes to school program will come to an end. Your call can help change that.

Check the latest status and learn more about the bill.

Thank you for your help!

Navigate Colorado state parks with new trail maps

Color-coded to make finding the right trail easier.image

If you’re a frequent user of trails in Colorado’s state parks, here’s great news: Colorado Parks and Wildlife has created 60 new trail maps that use color coding to show allowable uses on specific trails, indicated by mile marker.

The new maps include information such as elevation, trail length, trail surface and GPS grids, similar to USGS 24k topographic maps.

The free maps are available on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website.

Help End the Hit and Run Loophole in Colorado. Support Bicycle Colorado!

Bicycle Colorado is working hard to make Cycling Safer in Colorado

Denver Capital building

Image via Wikipedia

Bicycle Colorado announces support for the “End the Hit and Run Loophole” Act (HB12-1084) introduced in the Colorado House by Representatives Kathleen Conti (R) and Rhonda Fields (D). The act will increase the penalty for a hit-and-run crash causing serious bodily injury from a Class 5 felony to a more serious Class 4, removing a dangerous loophole in Colorado law by giving a hit-and-run offense the same penalty as drunk driving.

At present it is better to flee and avoid getting caught drunk than it is to stay at the scene.

Hit-and-run crashes disproportionately affect people who walk and ride bicycles. Bicycle and pedestrian fatalities are four times more likely to be the result of a hit and run than other roadway crashes. The difference between life and death may be the immediate help that is offered at the time of the crash.

The bill will soon be heard in the Judiciary Committee, and we will keep you updated on its progress. For more information, go to the legislative page on our website.
