Task force recommends ideas to improve bike, car and walking safety

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - Keeping Wyoming residents safe while on the road, bicycles, and walking trails. That's the goal of the Wyoming Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force.

On Tuesday morning (1/16/18) they met to discuss a recent draft report on improvements and suggestions.

Some of those suggestions are to develop a standards and training curriculum for bicycling and walking enforcement for police officers. They also recommend that WYDOT test a high-power air-blower method to clear the shoulders of debris that could be a hazard.

The Wyoming Legislature and Gov. Matt Mead created the task force to study the benefits and opportunities of bicycle and pedestrian pathways and natural surface trails in the state.

The report also shows that Wyoming is the 9th most active walk and bicycle commuting state in the country.
