CHP Receives Federal Funds for Bicyclist and Pedestrian Safety

October 10th is International Walk and Bike to School Day, and the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists is the focus for CHP for the coming year.  CHP has received federal funds for bicyclist and pedestrian safety.   The California Pedestrian and Bicyclist Enforcement and Education Project grant runs from October 1st, 2018, through September 30th, 2019. Funding for this program was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  During this year-long statewide campaign, CHP officers will conduct enhanced enforcement activities and public education campaigns.  Bicycle and pedestrian fatalities account for 29 percent of all roadway fatalities in California.  For more information, contact Fran Clader Director of Communications at (916) 843-3310.
