Come Learn With Us

On how to identify legal vs. illegal behavior by motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians – and make sure you are traveling safely and within the law. The League of Michigan Bicyclists is offering multiple sessions of Bike & Pedestrian Safety Education, a newly updated version of its educational program for law enforcement professionals and the citizens of the communities they serve.

  • Learn Michigan’s laws related to bicycle and pedestrian use of the roadways
  • Learn how to accurately report bicycle and pedestrian-involved crashes using the UD-10 form
  • Explore new approaches to traffic safety through data and reimagining traditional practices through the lens of equity, empathy and ethics in transportation
  • Law enforcement will receive MCOLES credit for participation

After this session, you’ll be ready to educate and enforce bicycle and pedestrian laws correctly when on duty, and help your friends and family drive, ride, walk, and wheel safely off duty. This material was developed through a project funded by the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning and the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Whether on patrol by foot, car, motorcycle, or bicycle, your officers will benefit from this free, 3.5-hour course, co-presented with the Michigan State Police, and accredited by the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES).
