NMA Keep the US Moving for January 15, 2020

This blog is a collaboration between the National Motorists Association and the Keep the US Moving (KUSM) group written and curated by NMA Communications Director Shelia Dunn (with some guest authors as indicated). The KUSM weekly blog focuses on road diets, traffic calming and programs such as Vision Zero and Complete Streets.  

The NMA and the KUSM believe that it is important to include stories that oppose our viewpoint. We try to indicate those as needed.  

We love to hear from you about the Keep the US Moving Blog. Please feel free to comment below the post and find additional resources to fight road diets below. If you are concerned about any of these issues in your local area, please contact the NMA, nma@motorists.org or KUSM at https://www.keeptheusmoving.com/connect or KeeptheUSMoving@gmail.com.  

Editor’s Note: After attending the Keep LA Moving Conference in October 2019, the NMA and the Keep the US Moving leadership decided we wanted to collaborate more closely. This blog is the first collaboration of others to come. We appreciate your support of keeping the US moving and please if you have comments about any of the stories, write them below.

Keep the US Moving is a grassroots organization dedicated to publicizing the detrimental effects of arterials road diets. We connect people who want to share experiences and information in order to help their communities craft truly safer roads. KUSM has a very active and closed Facebook group. Connect with them at KeepTheUSMoving@gmail.com and find additional information on their website at https://www.keeptheusmoving.com/.

We especially want to hear from you if you are fighting a road diet in your community. We are working on building a nationwide network in order to give best practices to those activists who need it.
