Petition To End Fatal Bike Crashes

To: Iowa Senate President; Iowa Speaker of the House; Iowa Governor; Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT); Iowa Department of Public Safety (DPS):

We demand an end to fatal bike crashes in Iowa and insist the Iowa General Assembly, Iowa DOT, and Iowa DPS work to improve bicycle safety.

Seven Iowans have died in bicycle crashes this year. Forty-eight Iowans have died in crashes in the past 10 years. Half of the fatal crashes involve motor vehicles failing to yield when passing the bicycle. We need a safe passing distance law requiring vehicles to change lanes to pass. We need to end unsafe driving with increased penalties and appropriate reckless driving charges. We need safer bicycle facilities.  We need enforcement of laws that prevent crashes.
