Take state survey on bicycle safety

Do you walk or ride a bicycle in North Carolina? If so, here’s your chance to tell the N.C. Department of Transportation how it can help improve your overall experience.
The department is giving the public an opportunity to voice needs and concerns related to bicycle and pedestrian safety through an online survey launched this week.
“Building a safer transportation network is a primary goal of our department, and meeting the safety needs of our state’s bicyclists and pedestrians is a key part of that,” said Deputy Secretary of Transit Jim Westmoreland.
“The feedback we receive from this survey will allow us to better plan to meet these needs, and in turn improve the overall biking and walking experience in North Carolina.”
The survey is open to all North Carolina residents and visitors until Feb. 8, and can be accessed on NCDOT’s Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation website at www.ncdot.gov/bikeped.
The results of the survey will be used to identify key problems and emerging concerns, prioritize safety issues and determine the level of public support for future investment in the state’s bicycle and pedestrian network.
The survey results will be used as a primer to a series of roundtable discussions scheduled for later this year.
The survey is being administered in partnership between NCDOT and the Institute for Transportation Research and Education’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program at North Carolina State University.
For more information, contact Sarah O’Brien at (919) 515-8703 or skworth@ncsu.edu, or Helen Chaney with NCDOT at (919) 807-0780.
