Pedestrian Safety Tools Can Help Cyclists Too

Yesterday, DC’s Committee on Environment, Public Works, and Transportation held a hearing on a number of pedestrian safety bills.  WABA provided testimony in support of:

  1. Allowing bicyclists to proceed during the Lead Pedestrian Interval, and
  2. Addressing roadway design speeds by adding appropriate traffic calming measures, rather than relying solely on speed limit enforcement to lower motor vehicle speeds.
