Known as the 2015 Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety bill, this piece of SC legislation aims to make our streets safer.  We all want to travel here and there, by our chosen means, in the safest possible way.  This bill moves us towards that goal.  It’s just the right thing to do.  It primarily updates SC […]

2014 Safe Streets Tour and Rolling Bike Summit http://pccsc.net/2014-safe-streets-tour-rolling-bike-summit/ http://pccsc.net/2014-safe-streets-tour-rolling-bike-summit/#comments Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:00:09 +0000 http://pccsc.net/?p=601114

We trained over 75 ambassadors across the state in our unique Safe Streets Save Lives bike safety and law curriculum, specific to our state, and we can’t help but feel a deep sense of accomplishment. Each ambassador was selected based on their commitment to reteach this in their city/town, which means our campaign has what it […]

This past week, the Coalition dug deep into the draft 2040 Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan and the Strategic Highway Safety Plan, and we wrote up very specific public comment.  This was comment on planning documents drafted by the SC Dept. of Transportation and SC Dept. of Public Safety, and these are important in steering priorities […]

What the heck is a Road Safety Audit? http://pccsc.net/heck-road-safety-audit/ http://pccsc.net/heck-road-safety-audit/#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 21:55:45 +0000 http://pccsc.net/?p=597780
