Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).
