AAA Mid-Atlantic Proposes Federal Gas Tax Revenues Only for Highways

According to the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, AAA Mid-Atlantic has proposed that Federal gas tax revenues only be used on highways, eliminating any share that has historically gone to trails, walking and biking programs. This is an example of what we should expect from the “I don’t care about anything but cars” community, given the current budget climate.
AAA National claims to support bicycling, but has allowed the above position to get public and political traction. They should not be allowed to have it both ways.

Bicyclists may register their feelings with AAA National by adding their name to a petition at www.railstotrails.org/AAA.
