Biking in S.C. gets fewer dollars and is more dangerous (updated)

Update February 21: The Post and Courier has an editorial about this report and does a little pondering about the state of things and what the log jam may be; read it here.

Apparently today is the day of story updates.

First reporting: That's the conclusion drawn in a recent study by the Alliance for Biking and Walking that says South Carolina spends just 0.4% of its federal road dollars on bikes -- that's 44ยข per person.

They also say that "while 5% of trips in South Carolina are by bicycle or foot, bicyclists and pedestrians account for 12% of traffic fatalities."

A post at Charleston Moves tipped us off to this report and you can get primed on the South Carolina aspect of it over here.
