ADOT Bike Safety Survey - 11 Questions - ALL CYCLISTS Should Respond

To all 600+ of you on our Brumbys distribution list. Whether you are currently riding a bike or used to and have stopped riding and have not been on one in awhile, every one of you need to take this important ADOT 11 question survey. Click on this link ( and go to survey at the bottom of the web page. You will have the opportunity to also provide your written feedback on the safety concerns of cycling in Arizona. This feedback is critical to improving safety and protections/enforcement of not only the 3 Feet law, but also to provide input on specific locations in the State that are unsafe for cycling.

On the very last question you also have the opportunity to list the Clubs and Advocacy groups you belong to or are affiliated with. If you ride on a Team, obviously list your team and also list that you are a member of the Red Mountain Brumys Cycling Club. Whether you have contributed or not, please also note that you support the "Not One More Cyclist" NonProfit Cycling Advocacy Foundation, supporting Injured and Killed cyclists. Lastly, if you are a member of the Coalition of Arizona Bicylists or any other advocacy groups please list them as well.

Thanks for your support, again this is a very important vehicle to provide valuable input to our State Deparment of Transportation. Please forward to all cyclists, teams and clubs that you know, personally requesting their support as well.

ADOT Bicycle Safety Action Plan: Public Input Survey Available

The Arizona Department of Transportation is developing a Bicycle Safety Action Plan to reduce the number of bicycle-related crashes, injuries, and fatalities on state highways.

One of the most important steps toward creating the Bicycle Safety Action Plan is to document the perspectives, concerns, and input, as it relates to bicycle safety, of residents from throughout the State of Arizona.

All residents of Arizona are invited to participate and complete a Public Input Survey for bicycle safety. The results of the survey will serve as input to identifying important bicycle safety issues and will help to establish goals and objectives for the Bicycle Safety Action Plan.

A link to the survey can be found on the Arizona Department of Transportation's Bicycle and Pedestrian Program website ( The results of the on-line survey are collected automatically so respondents do not have to email or print the completed survey.

For assistance completing the survey or for more information on the Bicycle Safety Action Plan, please contact:
