Want more bike lanes? This survey is for you

Written by 

If you like to bike, but don’t like how few bike lanes there are in your community, now’s the chance to tell the N.C. Department of Transportation to do a better job of accommodating cyclists.

A 5- to 10-minute survey has been posted on-line by the DOT with the aim of “assessing the public’s needs and concerns regarding bicycle and pedestrian safety.”

The survey asks whether you think cycling is safe in your community, and if not, what could be done about it. Bike lanes, bike paths and greenways, along with traffic calming measures to reduce speeding, are among the options. The survey also asks whether DOT should be required to accommodate bikes and pedestrians when building new roads.

Lastly, the survey asks which poses the biggest threat to bikers: roads that fail to accommodate cyclists versus drivers not paying attention

To take it, go to www.itre.ncsu.edu/Public/Bike-Ped-NCDOT-Survey.html.
