MONTHLY EDUCATION INITIATIVE

Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Awareness

Public Education has always been a component of efforts to reduce pedestrian/bicycle collisions. Pedestrians and bicyclists need to know about the risk factors associated with sharing the road, but studies have indicated that man have limited understanding of right-of-way rules they are legally obligated to follow at crosswalks and other locations. Although standalone public education programs generally have not been effective in reducing pedestrian crashes, there is a role for public education in supporting speed management activities.
