The Colorado Strategic Highway Safety Plan identifies highway safety issues and recommends focus areas for spending, which has historically been around $30 million. These dollars help pay for projects such as Click it or Ticket (seat belt enforcement and education) and the Heat is On (DUI enforcement and education).

Dan Grunig, our executive director, has been appointed to the steering committee that will work on setting recommendations for the 2014 plan. He’ll bring Bicycle Colorado’s expertise on how to increase safety for bicyclists, pedestrians, and everyone who uses our roads to the discussion.

The number of total miles driven in Colorado is dropping while the number of people commuting on bikes is increasing. We believe it’s critical for bicycle and pedestrian safety issues to receive appropriate attention and funding, and by representing the interests of our most vulnerable road users, we can increase safety for all.

Thanks for sharing, @StreetsblogDen. We're excited to bring greater attention to the issues we see in bike lanes.

  • Always good to see our logo out on the trail!
  • Our communications manager (yours truly) leaves his @warbyparker #warbyhometryon out on his desk during a meeting and look what happens… #pranksters #lookingood #bicyclecolorado
  • Glad to see the bicycle repair station at Wash Park getting put to good use (even if we never like to see a fellow bicyclist in need)! Thanks for putting these up, @denverparksrec—you helped him get home safe!
