Day 344: Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s AAA petition

13 12 2010

Back in September, I talked about the American Automobile Association’s (AAA) attempt to get Congress to cut funds that support trail, biking and walking programs in order to funnel that money to the highway system. Several years ago Carrick and I dropped our long-time AAA membership and switched to Better World Club – a bike-friendly, eco-friendly, socially-responsible alternative to AAA. (More about them here.)

Today was the day the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy presented AAA headquarters with the tens of thousands of signatures the RTC has gathered since September for their online petition. The petition was to remind AAA that bicyclists also drive, pay gas taxes and see trails, biking and walking as part of a balanced transportation system. As of this writing, I’ve not found an update about the issue, but you can follow the progress updates on RTC’s Web site.

If you’re looking for an alternative to AAA, you might want to check out Better World Club.

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!
