Health District Starting Campaign To Encourage Drivers, Walkers, Bicyclists To Share Roads

Just a heads up about something you'll be seeing in the media soon: the Spokane Regional Health District will be kicking off Spokane's first comprehensive education campaign aimed at increasing safety through sharing the road among bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians.

It’s funded by a grant through SRTC. The Health District is currently in the process of gathering stakeholder input on the subject, including how to realistically decrease fatalities, injuries, threats and uncivil behavior.

Stay tuned, I'll update you when it's time to get the public involved.
