The Oregon Speaker of the House is asking you to fill out a survey on Transportation.

1) Fill out this survey
2) Share the Link with friends
3) Share some of your answers with BikePortland

Here is the survey to take or share:
==============================
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DTGDYZD

My ideas to fix transit in Portland and everywhere in Oregon

— Get cars out of lanes used by Bus and MAX and Streetcars
— Enforce existing rules on speed and cell use, deeply investigate all crashes with a serious death or injury and pull data records.
— Reduce speed limits like Seattle has done. We must fund safety before we fund projects to widen roads and increase death rates.
— Stop repeat offenders
— Get cars off greenways. We need a network of streets like Sunday Parkways every day of the year.
— High Speed trail and complete the Salmonberry trail
— New leadership at ODOT focused on VisionZero , if the FAA can design our system for zero deaths we can do the same with roads
— Add 20 cents to the gas tax
— Give all 99 of Portland’s Neighborood associations a budget to fix the most deadly spots in their area.
— Replace all 7 members of the broken House Transportation committee appointed by Kotek. None of the members live in a city. ( see image)
— Take money away from ODOT and give to local transit managers
See how California does it –> https://youtu.be/Pk1rW5S-S5A?t=34m15s
— Get city roads out of ODOT control, make them safer under city control, No mash up of ODOT/PBOT/Mult County
