City of Grand Rapids Survey Seeks Input to Improve Bicycle Safety
Spring is here, cyclists have hit the streets and Grand Rapids is aiming to make the roads safer for those riding bikes.
A new survey asks for community input to help develop an outreach campaign to reduce the number of bicycle/vehicle accidents.
GRBJ.com reports, from 2008 - 2012, Grand Rapids had the second highest ratio of fatal bike crashes among Michigan's large cities.
Grand Rapids has received grant money to help improve safety. Now a new survey is designed to help discover more ways to improve.
The survey asks questions about how often you ride a bike and drive a car. It asks about problems you encounter while biking and more.
Prizes are available to those who complete the survey including: an iPad Mini, a $100 Freewheeler Bike Shop gift certificate, and a Grand Rapids swimming pool season pass.
