Gio Capuzo started this petition to UC Santa Barbara and

UCSB is well known for its huge biking culture, and bikes are many students’ primary mode of transportation to and from campus. Before transferring to UCSB this year, I was attending SBCC and commuted there via car everyday. I have many friends at UCSB who have either been in a biking accident, or witnessed biking accidents daily and was very shocked to find out how often these incidents occurred. Yet, many of these accidents occur before students even arrive on campus due to the lack of bike lanes in the streets of Isla Vista. Having to share the road with cars, bicyclists, and pedestrians when there is a lack of distinguishing bike lanes in the street creates a super unsafe environment for UCSB students and the residents residing in the community of Isla Vista.

I am creating this petition in hopes of starting a conversation with the city and members of my community about adding more bike lanes in Isla Vista. UCSB has created a super efficient biking system throughout its campus, but Isla Vista itself lacks the amount of designated bike lanes needed to ensure the safety of bikers. It is important to get this conversation started in order for every one to be able to safety and efficiently share the road.
