Subj: Support Mobility Plan 2035 for safe & sustainable streets!

Dear Councilmember _________,

I support adopting the Mobility Plan 2035, including all of its proposed networks. As a ___________ (e.g. bike rider, pedestrian, transit user, driver, business owner, student, parent, etc.), I strongly support this Plan because I believe that it will help make L.A. streets better for all of us walking, biking, taking transit and driving.

A well-connected network of protected bike lanes and other complete streets improvements the Plan includes will give people healthier options to get around our neighborhoods and our whole city. Calmer traffic and safer streets are critical to protect and enhance our quality of life. We need this plan to build on the progress made by the 2010 Bicycle Plan and make all modes of transportation work together for our city. The modal networks in the Plan were carefully crafted to balance the needs of all who will use them. We can’t afford to piecemeal them to appease local naysayers without undermining their citywide utility.

This Plan also supports LADOT’s goal of eliminating all traffic deaths by 2025. Right now, a pedestrian or bicyclist is killed on L.A. streets every three days. We know that good design, along with education and enforcement, is essential to meeting this goal. This Plan gives all city agencies the tools and the direction to work together toward making L.A. a safe city to move around in.

(Personal comments)

Please support the Mobility Plan 2035 so that we can all travel safely on the streets of L.A.

Sincerely,

(Your name)
