Petitioners have filed a Motion for Reconsideration with the 1st District Court of Appeal asking them to reconsider their decision not to make FDOT (Florida Department of Transportation) install bike lanes on State Route A1A where there is sufficient state owned right-of-way to do so. This “reconsideration” is based upon the principle that the court ruled against the petitioners on that issue without allowing them the opportunity to present their brief and argue the issue. This issue was not introduced in the Informal Hearing by FDOT or petitioners and therefore, not thought to be part of the oral argument.

This continued battle requires funding, especially in the light that most of the work done to date has been pro bono. FBA needs your donations earmarked for this campaign. The statewide implications of victory or defeat are huge. Donations can be made my mail to FBA, PO Box 718, Waldo FL 32694, or by visiting our website at Click on "Join Now" and designate Appeal Campaign in the "comments" section.

Thank you for your support.
