Are you already struggling with the trails and sidewalks in bad conditions? You want to take action, but not sure what to do? You want to file a report in order for the infrastructure to be maintained but don’t know who to call?
We are happy to introduce you to our snow season campaign called “Plow my ride”, we encourage you to call and file a report every time you find infrastructure that needs plowing, we make sure you don’t forget where to call.
We have stickers and acrylic charms available for you, the idea is that you place them somewhere within close reach when you ride, like your phone case, bike frame, handlebar, seat post, or wherever you want. The stickers have the phone numbers where you can file a report with the DOT and the Muni, so you don’t have to memorize them.
Why are we doing this, and why you should be part of this campaign?
DOT and the Municipality have suffered from maintenance fund cuts, and this among other things causes that the infrastructure for non-motorized users is placed second when it comes to maintenance priority. By filing reports those authorities can let the legislature know that there is a demand for maintenance and that they need more support to satisfy that need, in order for us to be safe.
We ask your collaboration, while we work with the DOT and Municipality to find short and long-term solutions to this issue, that is encountered every season.
P.S. If you also upload pictures, use the hashtag #plowmyride and tag us, we will forward it to the corresponding authorities to make more noise.
