Help Rails to Trails tell AAA to stop lobbying for cuts to trail funding.

The American Automobile Association (AAA) wants Congress to cut funds that support trail, biking and walking programs in order to funnel that money to the highway system. AAA has forgotten that bicyclists drive, support AAA, pay gas taxes and want balanced transportation systems that provide the choice to get around in a variety of ways.
Help us help them remember!

Hello Ray!
AAA’s positions on a federal transportation program and funding reforms are clear. AAA seeks support for a transportation system that:
•provides choices and multi-modal opportunities
•is affordable and accessible for all users
•facilitates personal travel needs
•preserves and maximizes the utility of the current system
•increases capacity to address growing congestion

AAA respects the work of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, but its current petition campaign — a reaction to recent commentary published by AAA Mid-Atlantic in its AAA World magazine – mischaracterizes AAA Mid-Atlantic’s position. http://bit.ly/9VWDfc

AAA is and always has been in favor of a safe, efficient, multi-modal transportation system. For more information on AAA’s efforts in this regard, see http://www.AAAmakingamericastronger.com. Thank you.
