Sharing the Road to Reduce Petroleum Dependence: Challenges and Solutions for Motorized and Non-Motorized Vehicle Users
May 7, 2010; 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Offices of the Michigan Municipal League, 208 N. Capitol Ave – First Floor, Lansing, MI 48933
Join us for the next installment of the GLACC Clean Transportation Series, where GLACC and friends will highlight what vehicle fleet drivers and non-motorized transportation users are doing to ensure safe roadways for everyone.
We’ll also have a discussion of challenges and solutions to safety issues that are a part of ‘sharing the road’. Your voice is needed. Connecting the dots between safe driving, walking, and bicycling is key for succeeding in reduced petroleum consumption and increased use of clean methods of transportation.
GLACC has focused the 2010 Clean Transportation Series on connecting the dots between all the ways to reduce petroleum dependence in our area. To truly create an environment that encourages the use of alternatives to petroleum people need to feel safe in using new types of vehicles and fuels, and conventional ways of getting around – like biking or walking – are important, too.
