      SUPPORT HB 5506: An Act Establishing Pedestrian Safety Construction
      Programs

      Every year seventy or more bicyclists and pedestrians are killed in
      motor-vehicle accidents in Connecticut - 16% of all traffic
      fatalities. Two-thirds are school children and seniors.

      But, when the time comes to address hazardous roads - less than 2% of
      the Federal money available for safety construction programs reaches
      Connecticut's pedestrians and bicyclists.

      This money should be directed to cost-effective projects that will
      save lives.

      CBC, in our report "Deadly by Design", made recommendations that would
      lead to safer roads - for everyone.

      One proposal was to dedicate 15% of safety construction funds for
      pedestrian and bicycle safety projects. The money would be spent
      around schools, senior/disabled housing, libraries and civic
      facilities.

      HB5506 would do exactly that.

      The bill has been raised for a public hearing by the Public Safety
      Committee of the CT State Legislature.

      NEW HEARING DATE:

      Wednesday, March 6, 2002
      10:00 AM in ROOM 2A
      Legislative Office Building, Capitol Ave, Hartford, CT.

      Support HB 5506, An Act Establishing Pedestrian Safety Programs.
