Bike Safety Awarness Week 2012

Post date: Feb 2, 2012 9:10:38 PM

Bedford, Lexington, and Arlington, are inviting 5 other neighboring towns, plus MassBike to participate in a "Electronic Message Board" event in April as a prelude to May Bike Month events. We will work with the town Traffic Safety officer to place the portable electronic message boards on busy roads. The messages, appropriate for the particular road, are intended to make motorists more aware of bicyclists on the road and the importance of providing a safe clearance when passing.

If there is road or intersection that frequently presents safety concerns for you as a bicyclist, post a note, or send us an email, and we will ask the town to address the issue.
