Get out of your car and get active

The silly idea that bicycles should be banned from Iowa roads has probably gotten as much attention as it deserves.

It’s not going to happen, so let’s move on.

Let’s spend more time and effort making it easier for more people to use our transportation infrastructure safely. Iowa communities should all be adopting some form of complete streets policy and encouraging active living.

Did you see the CDC report saying complete streets can help reduce our obesity epidemic?

Get out of those cars and walk or bicycle or skate to the store or school or your office or church. Pedal to your favorite bar or eatery.

Enough already with the excuses and the “stay off the road” nonsense.
