Thanks to Collin Worth, Bicycle Coordinator for the City of Miami, for sending this video to  Transit Miami. The Safe Routes to School Pedestrian & Bike PSAs are part of the Safe Routes to School Awareness Campaign that the University of Miami and CBS have done with the Florida Department of Transportation - District Six.

UM/CBS will have this contract running until the end of August.  The PSAs also have Spanish and Haitian Creole versions that are running on Mega TV and Island TV, respectively as part of the SRTS Media campaign.

    I got an email from the League of American Bicyclists representative in regards to Rep. Eric Cantor wanting to cut Safe Routes to School grants. From my experience with Safe Routes to School grants they are underfunded to begin with, so cutting it is absurd. Secondarily, the BikeSafe/WalkSafe programs are partially funded through this program, and it would be detrimental to a great program.
    Here is the email below, please call your congressperson and let them know you support this program.

    Federal Safe Routes Program Under Attack

    Urge Your Representative to Support Safe Routes To Schools

    House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) has targeted the federal Safe Routes to School program established under the 2005 Federal Surface Transportation Bill (SAFETEA-LU) as wasteful government spending in his weekly “YouCut program”.

    Each week representative Cantor asks people to vote for which of five options they would cut from the federal budget. Republicans then hold a floor vote in the House of Representatives to try to eliminate the program that gets the most votes.

    This week, the federal Safe Routes to School program is one of Rep. Cantor’s targets. He argues that SRTS duplicates other bicycling and walking programs, and that bicycling and walking infrastructure is a local government responsibility. We need your help making sure that Members of Congress understand the value of Safe Routes to School and support it.

    Please take a few minutes to send a message to your Member of Congress to ask them to vote against any effort to cut Safe Routes to School.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
