"And we should do far more to get people out of their cars. 'Complete streets' are one example.

Not so long ago, more than two thirds of children traveled to school by foot or on bicycle. Now it's less than 10 percent."

Election Day is Moments Away — Now is the Time to Act!
Tomorrow is Election Day, so if you haven't yet voted, be sure to take another look at the SFBC's endorsements for the candidates and issues we feel will be best for better bicycling and safer streets for everyone in San Francisco:
Chris Daly for District 6 Supervisor
And regardless of whether you've already cast your vote, we urge you to help our endorsed campaigns with their final push:
Let them know the SFBC sent you!
And help bring out the "Yes" vote for Proposition E, an increase to the parking tax that will help fund better transit and safer streets. Do your part — download and print out Yes on E flyers and window signs and get them into voters' hands.
Thanks for your help and don't forget to vote!
