No Shared Farm-to-Market Roadways in Iowa
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS SIGNED OUR ONLINE AND PAPER PETITION. WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL AND WILL BE CLOSING OUR SITE ON OCTOBER, 28 2009, TO TAKE OUR ISSUE ON TO THE NEXT STEP. YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. Sign PetitionSign Petition
We the undersigned are Iowa residents who urge our Legislature to support a ballot initiative for the November 2010 election which will prohibit bicyclists from using state and county defined farm-to-market roads.
A farm-to-market road is a state or county road which serves to connect rural or agricultural areas to market towns.
Over the past ten years the number of bicyclists using these farm-to-market roads for recreational purposes has increased dramatically as have the number of preventable accidents and fatalities.
Rural commerce and citizens are significantly impacted when forced to share the farm-to-market roadways with bicyclists. Because of the growth of today's commerce and agricultural business, shared roadways are no longer safe or practical in today's society.
So please if you are a resident of Iowa join us and lets make our roadways safe. Thanks for your time and your support.
