In just 5 days last week, the Bike Fed trained 117 driver’s education instructors on the Share & Be Aware Driver’s Ed Class. Our instructors taught the classes at all of the Fall workshops for the Wisconsin Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association.
- September 11, 2012 – Menomonie
- September 12, 2012 – Hayward
- September 13, 2012 – Wausau
- September 18, 2012 – Spring Green
- September 19, 2012 – Oconomowoc
- September 20, 2012 – Oshkosh
This classes highlighted driver’s legal responsibilities relative to people walking and biking on and across our roadways. Thanks to this “train the trainer” strategy, these same 117 instructors will now teach this essential information to over 4,240 student drivers in 2013. In this way, the limited staff at the Bike Fed is far more effective at reaching people across the state.
Thank you to the WTDSEA, the instructors who took the time to attend our classes, the Dept of Public Instruction for inviting us, ABATE for changing the law to require bike, ped, and motorcycle education in Driver’s Ed for helping our staff at the Bike Fed to improve the safety of people walking and biking.
