Public Safety Joins No on Prop 6 Coalition
Leading public safety organizations representing California firefighters, highway patrolmen and emergency responders voiced strong opposition to Proposition 6, the ballot measure that would make the state’s bridges and roads less safe and jeopardize public safety.
“We oppose this dangerous measure because it would stop thousands of needed road safety repair projects all over the state, putting driver and pedestrian safety at greater risk,” said Doug Villars, President of the California Association of Highway Patrolmen. “Voters should reject this attack on public safety and vote NO on Prop 6 in November.”
“Crumbling roads and bridges cause traffic accidents that lead to injury and fatalities,” said Brian Rice, President of California Professional Firefighters. “Prop 6 will make road conditions worse and jeopardize the safety of California drivers. Furthermore, in an emergency, every minute counts — so safe and well-maintained roads help ensure that first responders can arrive at the scene quickly and save lives. Voters should vote NO on Prop 6, because the measure could delay response times and makes our roads less safe.”
