- we will investigate this…

Education Survey Responses and BAC Responses to make Dickinson and the surrounding community a bicycle friendly environment:

- This, and many other topics, can fit into our bicycle safety campaign!

We did not have time to go over Encouragement or Enforcement suggested areas for improvement. Next meeting!
Bicycle Safety campaign
- This is a multi-faceted campaign aimed at increasing understanding and adoption of bicycle safety measures. All efforts would point people toward a centralized safety training/hub where they would be certified bicycle safety ambassadors.
- The goal is to have people understand the importance of a few bicycle safety points. Then, they receive some sort of visual reminder (a branded bike light?) to put on their bicycle. Whenever they see/use that item, they would be reminded of their commitment.
- Posters, signs at racks, bicycle safety flyers with bike registration, “Did you know?” series with information like how you can get a DUI on a bicycle, revamp Green Bike training and require a smaller refresher course every semester they take out a bike, work with storage bike users, “ghost bikes,” Dson today, “You are x% safer” poster, new hire orientation, flyer for safety in 1st year packet, on bike route maps, etc.
