Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Thanks Gov. Quinn for staying strong on speeding

Last week, Gov. Pat Quinn signed HB 1112 into law. This initiative of Active Transportation Alliance increases the fines for speeding in park, highway construction and very high speed situations (30+ mph over speed limit).

The extra funding will be given to the state's victim witness assistance centers to fund increased support for families of people who are killed in crashes while walking or biking.

Thank you Gov. Quinn, for signing this important legislation.
