Education Issues & Programs

It's one of the four "E's" that the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) identifies as the core elements towards reducing bicycling-related injuries and fatalities: Enforcement of traffic laws. Engineering solutions that enhance the safety of bicyclists without compromising their mobility. Encouragement of increased bicycling among all demographic groups- cycling that suits your goals and lifestyle, whether for transportation, exercise, or pleasure. And, education because the more about bicycling you know, the better bicyclist you'll be.
