Promoting Safe Cycling with Operation Firefly
Posted by Councilmember Englander on March 02, 2018 at 1:53 PM
This week, my office partnered with the LA County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC), Northridge South Neighborhood Council, and Northridge East Neighborhood Council to promote safe, responsible bicycling by handing out front and rear bike lights to students at Cal State University, Northridge.
In addition to handing out the bike lights, LACBC conducted surveys to test students' knowledge of proper bike safety practices. Programs like this can help spread awareness of simple steps that individuals can take to make our roads safer for everyone.
I want to thank all the volunteers who showed up in the chilly weather to do outreach and encourage safe cycling. Students represent an significant number of cyclists in our district and it was heartening to see the enthusiasm among them to learn about and spread awareness of safe practices.
