Great support from US DOT for biking

First the Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced "You have a full partner in Ray LaHood" and shared his support for bicycling as a viable form of transportation - a key to livable communities - at the National Bike Summit's Congressional Reception on Thursday, March 11th . Today, LaHood amazed the bicycling world and announced his new Policy Statement on Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodation Regulations and Recommendations. It is simply the strongest statement of support for prioritizing bicycling and walking ever to come from a sitting secretary of transportation.
