LDC-BACPublic input is essential to developing a better understanding of the community’s perception of Bicycle Safety. The Lawrence-Douglas County Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) worked with the Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) staff to partner with Senior KU Engineering Student, Carlos Patino to study Bicycle Crash Data and Safety Perceptions in Lawrence. BAC members have partnered to develop a survey to gauge the safety perceptions around bicycling in Lawrence.

A link to the survey is available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PofBS now through April 21. Public participation in the survey will help better define priorities to improve safety in the region.
In addition, BAC members will be present at the 2015 Earth Day Celebration which will be held on Saturday, April 11th from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at South Park is located at 11th Street and Massachusetts Street to collect input. The input collected will be used to draft new or revised policies, programs and projects designed to make Douglas County more Bicycle Friendly.
