Webinar: Involving law enforcement in bicycle and pedestrian safety programs
Law enforcement is an essential part of making communities more walkable and bicycle- friendly. Experience here in the U.S. and lessons learned from overseas show that integrating engineering, education, and enforcement helps to improve bicyclist and pedestrian safety. The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) is offering a webinar on this topic Wednesday, May 19, 2010, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CDT. The webinar will focus on a combined enforcement and education effort in Burlington, Vermont that included significant involvement by local law enforcement. Participants in the webinar will learn how they can effectively engage and work with law enforcement to achieve greater and safer levels of walking and bicycling.
Cost for the webinar is $50 per site for APBP members, $75 per site for non-APBP members. Each site license includes one phone connection, one internet connection, one set of handouts for unlimited attendees in the same location, and access to a recording of the webinar.
