Civil Grand Jury To Sf: Do More For Biking

San Francisco has greatly expanded its network of bicycle lanes and is pursuing a Board of Supervisors-mandated goal of having 20 percent of travel in the City be by bicycle by 2020. But a 2012–13 report by the San Francisco Grand Jury, “Are the Wheels Moving Forward?,” recommends even more be done, especially in bike training and enforcement.

The jury’s recommendations included expanding bike safety education to noncyclists, increasing training for police officers in bicycle law enforcement, and adopting a plan that would aim for zero bike fatalities and a 50 percent annual reduction in bike collisions.

The report is available at (select the “Civil Grant Jury Reports” link).
