Governor Plans to Veto Safe Passing Bill Today! Forward this to every cyclist you know!
Dear Fellow Texas Cyclists,
Every cyclist in Texas must call Governor Perry today and insist that he allow SB 488 to pass!
The governor mistakenly thinks that the bill puts all of the responsibility on the motorist.There might be time to save the bill if you hurry and make the calls.
This is the most important call we have ever asked you to make. Our lives depend on it.
BikeTexas was notified at 12:30 pm CST that Governor Perry plans to veto the Safe Passing Bill. This veto can happen within the next couple of hours TODAY. We need every cyclist in Texas to call NOW and tell the Governor to pass SB 488. More than 1000 vulnerable road users in Texas die every year.
You must give the bill number.
CALL both phone NUMBERS (512) 463-4375 (512) 463-2000 Governor's main switchboard until 5pm
Let's Light Up The Grassroots. CALL NOW!!
