KALAMAZOO AREA RESIDENTS: Help Make Kalamazoo a More Bicycle-Friendly Community!

This petition made change with 153 supporters!


The Kalamazoo City Commission recently adopted a Complete Streets resolution and is considering a safe passing ordinance to help safeguard bicyclists.

The League of Michigan Bicyclists (LMB) is currently working with the Legislature to enact a 5-foot safe passing standard. LMB is urging the City Commission to adopt an ordinance that is inline with statewide efforts and similar policies in surrounding communities that use 5-feet as the minimum standard.

Over the last two years, Michigan has seen a startling increase in bicycle fatalities and injuries. In 2015 alone, bicycle fatalities rose 57% in our state. Michigan can and must do better at protecting vulnerable roadway users. The City of Kalamazoo is in a unique position to become a national leader by adopting a 5-foot passing ordinance.
