The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) just released the manual “Motorists and Bicyclists: Best Practices for Road Safety,” the first in a series of “Best Practices for Road Safety” manuals being developed by several NCDOT Safety Task Forces comprised of government and non-profit advocacy representatives. The goal of the document series is to identify best practices for all roadway users interacting with each other in different scenarios in and along North Carolina roadways.
NCDOT Motorists and Bicyclists: Best Practices for Road Safety manual addresses how motorists and bicyclists should interact with each other in the roadway environment.
BikeWalkNC was proud to work closely with staff at NCDOT, and the Executive Committee for Highway Safety over the course of 15 months to create this important update. We hope that you will spend some time with this document to improve your knowledge of roadway safety.
Prior to working on the Best Practices manual, NCDOT’s Integrated Mobility Division and BikeWalk NC partnered to create a series of educational videos about bicycle safety.
Each video contains important tips for safe cycling.
