The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has put together this Bicycle Safety Activity Kit to provide parents, caregivers, teachers, community leaders, and children with tools to learn the important basics about bicycle safety. This kit can be used in school or community bicycle safety programs or in conjunction with Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs. The kit contains age-appropriate activities emphasizing crashes and related injuries while bicycling.
Their mission is to improve the quality of life in communities through the increase of safe walking and bicycling as a viable means of transportation and physical activity. To support this mission, the PBIC:
- Develops, synthesizes, promotes and distributes accurate and current bicycling and walking information.
- Provides expert technical assistance to various audiences to ensure that citizens and professionals have access to the best available information.
- Generates a network of informed individuals and organizations who can increase the exposure of ped/bike issues to the general public.
To accomplish that mission, the PBIC manages several websites, produces a variety of reports, guides and case studies, and offers training and technical assistance.
