Education and encouragement programs can help improve safety and awareness for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians:
- Education helps people understand the laws and rules that apply to pedestrians and bicyclists. Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians all should learn how to interact on the roadways. This improves traffic law compliance and makes all modes safer for all users.
- Encouragement programs provide incentives, such as free transit passes, for bicycling and walking.
