PDOT’s Transportation Options division is working on a new safety campaign tentatively called “See and Be Seen.”
The program will encourage cyclists to use lights and increase their visibility as well as reminding motorists to take extra care around cyclists.
They’re still working on final pieces of the program but I’ve gotten word that a Bike Light Parade kickoff event leaving from the Community Cycling Center is planned for Last Thursday (11/30).
The program also has support from TriMet and will include ads on busses, shelters and benches.
More details coming soon.
