NCDOT Expands Watch for Me NC Safety Campaign

cyclists aBeginning in March 2014, the N.C. Department of Transportation will accept applications from communities interested in participating in the 2014 statewide Watch for Me NC campaign, a comprehensive education and enforcement program aimed at reducing the number of pedestrians and bicyclists hit and injured in crashes with vehicles.

In order to apply for this opportunity, communities must attend a webinar. There will be two opportunities to attend – Wednesday, Feb. 12 or Thursday, Feb. 20, from 2 to 3 p.m. Register for the webinar online.

The webinar will include information on the program and application process, as well as opportunities to ask NCDOT staff questions about Watch for Me NC.

Campaign partners are eligible to receive law enforcement training and educational materials to encourage safer bicycling and walking.

Agencies eligible to apply for the program include local governments, colleges, and universities with police departments involved in traffic safety operations. Non-profits, advocacy groups and citizen groups are not eligible to apply on their own, but are encouraged to provide support to an eligible agency.

Applications will be made available online Feb. 12, and will be accepted until April 17. Successful applicants will be notified in May 2014, and will begin to work with NCDOT on the Watch for Me NC campaign.

For more information, contact Helen Chaney, NCDOT Transportation Planner in the Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation, at [email protected]
