Decades of research shows that expanding roads doesn’t provide lasting congestion relief. More lanes means more traffic.
Help with a kids' bike helmet giveaway in Des Plaines, May 14
For the fourth year in a row, the Des Plaines Healthy Community Partnership will be giving away kids' bike helmets at the Spring Fun Fair, which takes place on Saturday, May 14.
Des Plaines residents will not want to miss the Pooch, Pet & Pedal Parade at 11 a.m.
Active Trans staff and our friends from REI will be on hand at the event spreading the good word about bike safety and practical cycling. In addition, organizers are looking for a few volunteers to help with helmet fitting during the giveaway.
The event runs 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Contact Dr. Mike Bagby at (847) 299-3440 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in helping out.

I support Active Transportation Alliance because I want to help change Chicago into a less car-focused city. I also want to see more biking options in Chicago with more protected bike lanes.
