With funding from Georgia’s “Share the Road” specialty car tag, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has awarded an $84,000 grant to Georgia Bikes to improve bicyclist safety in the state. This award represents the fifth year of such funding from GOHS and will support free law enforcement workshops, bicycle safety events throughout the state, the purchase and distribution of our popular Bicyclist Pocket Guides, and continued training for our staff in the best practices for bicycle safety education and outreach. The GOHS grant also provided significant support for the 2014 Georgia Bike Summit in Columbus.
With our partners at GOHS, we’re working to reduce the number of bicyclist fatalities and serious injuries in Georgia. We sincerely thank GOHS for their commitment to safer roadways for all users and look forward to utilizing their support to improve bicyclist safety in Georgia.
