Tags: LADOT, Mayor Villaraigosa
At the Mayor’s Bike Summit in August, LACBC addressed the need for education for all our city roadway engineers on bicycle safety design- beyond just the bikeways staff. We need all of our roadway engineers to be well-versed in bicycle and pedestrian safety design, and Complete Streets.
Since the Mayor’s Bike Summit, LACBC has been working with the Mayor’s staff to ensure that they addressed this issue. We are happy to announce that John Ciccarelli of Bicycle Solutions will be coming to LADOT to run a two-day training on April 26th and 27th.
LADOT Bikeways staff were integral in setting up this training that will educate their fellow engineers on best practices in bicycle safety design, the new City of LA Bike Plan, and more. We want to thank Interim General Manager of LADOT Amir Sedadi for facilitating this training and, of course, a big thanks to the Mayor and his staff for fulfilling one of our requests from the Bike Summit!
