In Conclusion ---- SAVING LIVES...

A Police Officer is in a unique position to save a life through enforcement of lawful behaviors that could or might just save a life--- YOURS, Your Child, Your Friend, Your Family or Your Neighbor.

It starts with education for everyone--- including law enforcement. By enhancing law enforcement's understanding of bicycle safety and the Rules of the Road, they are more likely to enforce those rules and do so correctly-that makes us all safer. Not recognizing or turning and looking away from behavior today could mean behavior that could cause a major injury or death tomorrow.
