Culver City Receives Grant for Bicycle, Pedestrian Safety Education
November 11, 2021
Culver City has been awarded a $75,000 Grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for bicycle and pedestrian safety education.
This grant will assist the city in developing and implementing a comprehensive traffic safety education program for community members of all ages and physical abilities, civic officials said. The program runs through September 2022.
Traffic safety is a “valued Culver City goal,” said civic officials, who announced that the Public Works Department has just completed its first Local Road Safety Plan, which includes safety education.
“Our roads are increasingly riskier for people who walk or ride their bike,” OTS Director Barbara Rooney said. “The goal of this funding is to reverse the growing trend of bicyclist and pedestrian-involved crashes by educating the public on safe road behaviors.”
The comprehensive safety program will teach valuable skills to all types of road users, officials said.
