The road to a safer PCH
Thanks to La Grange club members for pushing this forward:
Shown here, last friday's gathering of cylists and government officials for a media event to kick off the PCH "Share the Road" signage. The decision to place a series of "Share the road" signs along the perilous PCH came after many meetings between reps from local cycling clubs and local/state officials, several of whom were at the press conference in the Topanga Beach parking lot.
Including: Chief Deputy Director of CalTrans District 7 (L.A. and Ventura Counties), State Senator Sheila Kuehl, County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, State Assembly Member Fran Pavley and Duncan Lemmon, President of La Grange.
Vibile signage is certainly a step towards reminding drivers that cyclists, less protected than your average SUV, have a right to safer coastal views while sucking in all that CO2.... by not driving AND breathing those fumes in, were doubling our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
