Joining coalitions in Connecticut, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan and Missouri, New Mexico cyclists are pushing politicians and transportation officials to make things safer for cyclists.

The Chicago Tribune reports that it’s concern thats “cropping up across the nation as more people demand alternative ways to get to work, school and the corner store to avoid high gasoline prices and cut emissions.”

“We have a long history in this country of building a lot of really great roads for automobiles, and now I think we’re at a point where everybody would like to see more multi-modal transportation networks that really provide for everyone,” said Barbara McCann, executive director of the National Complete Streets Coalition in Washington, D.C.

She goes on to say that it’s a misconception that if states want to have cycling, walking and public transit facilities that they need a big pot of money and build a separate system, saying that the money already planned for roadways can be used to build mixed use projects.
