Education & Enforcement Home

No matter how good conditions are for bicycling in your community, bicyclists and motorists need to know how to safely interact with each other on the roads, and both bicyclists and motorists need to know how to safely handle their respective vehicles. That's where education comes in. And when the system breaks down and there is conflict, there must be reliable, consistent enforcement of traffic laws to ensure bad behavior is punished or corrected.
