As we head toward summer, California has seen its fair share of crashes and fatalities, and it’s no secret the roads are getting more dangerous.
The State Department of Transportation has posted new safety regulations for California’s motor vehicles, including restrictions on how many people are allowed on the road at a time.
The agency has also proposed a statewide congestion pricing program to help pay for roads that have been in bad shape for years.
And in January, California announced a major investment in bike lanes and other improvements.
With all that going on, we asked what the state’s top officials and industry leaders think of California’s roads and how the state can make them safer for people and the environment.
For a look at some of the challenges ahead, we’re joined by Gov.
Gavin Newsom, California Chamber of Commerce President David Shulman, and the president of the California Motor Vehicle Association, who is also a professor at UC Davis.
And, of course, we’ll hear from transportation experts from across the state and beyond.
Our next segment begins with the state legislature, which has been working on transportation policy for more than two decades.
The first piece of legislation passed by the Assembly last year is the Bicycle Infrastructure Bill.
It is called SB 1021, which makes a number of improvements to California’s bicycle infrastructure.
The legislation includes the expansion of protected bicycle lanes, a ban on certain vehicles with four wheels, and a ban of bicycles on city streets.
It also creates a “Bicycle Safety Fund” to fund efforts to reduce motor vehicle crashes and injuries.
We’ll have a lot more to say about the Bicycle Safety Fund in the next segment, which is going to come in a few days.
And then we’re going to have a special segment that will feature the president and chief of staff of the Sierra Club, Matt Myers, and an expert in California’s transportation problems, Dr. James Ransom, who has been a senior advisor to the Governor for over three decades.
So we’re talking about some serious changes that are happening in California.
We’re talking to transportation experts in the state who will be talking about all the different ways in which we can reduce the amount of traffic in California, including reducing the number of cars, which will be a big priority for the Governor.
And then, of all things, we will have an expert on the air pollution problem from the University of California Davis and the chief of health at UC Berkeley.
And finally, we have a professor of transportation at the University at Buffalo, Dr., Joseph A. Nardelli, who we’ll talk to about what we can do to prevent air pollution in the Golden State.
And, of this entire thing, I think we’ve gotten a lot of people to understand the importance of California in the American dream and in a number in the number that actually live here.
We’ve also gotten some very good ideas from the American public on how to do it better.
And the governor’s office has done a great job of doing all of this, so we are really excited about it.
So, you know, it’s really good.
We are also joined by an expert from the National Institute of Standards and Technology on the importance and benefits of road safety.
And we’re also joined this morning by the president for the California Bicycle Coalition, Dan Schatz, who also is a professor and director of the Center for Urban Transportation Research at UC-Berkeley.
And also, we are joined by the CEO of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents the state of California and the rest of the country.
And we are also joining the show this morning from the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. with a special guest.
This is the president’s first visit to California since he took office, and this is a conversation that we’ve had with a number.
But we are talking about the most important things that we’re doing in the State of California, so it’s an exciting conversation.
And you can hear it in the show.
But, of the two segments we did, we chose this one because we think it’s important to really dive into the challenges facing California, and what can we do about them.
And it also gives us an opportunity to talk about the new rules that were put in place in January.
We were actually surprised by the level of cooperation that the State Department has done, which I think is really good, because they really are working with a lot different stakeholders.
And I think the important thing to keep in mind is that the people who are involved in this are really the people in the states who are responsible for these kinds of things.
And the good news is that they are really listening.
So we appreciate their efforts and their openness to the fact that they have a problem, but it’s a problem that we know can be fixed, and we hope they will come to the table and come to a solution.
And that’s what they should be doing,
