Strategy AC1.13: Incorporate bicycle and pedestrian safety elements into Driver's Education to ensure drivers know the rules, rights, and responsibilities of drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Strategy Description

This strategy includes educating pedestrians and cyclists about their rights and responsibilities.

Additional Information / Case Studies

    • The Florida Traffic and Bicycle Safety Education Program provides training workshops to educate law enforcement officials, school resource officers, Safe Kids coalition members and volunteers to implement programs. The program includes a Driver's Education program. Instructors for the course are provided with information to teach bike and pedestrian laws, common crash types and ways to responsibly share the road. This is done through classroom activities, homework, and evaluation tools.
