NCDOT is conducting a survey to collect citizen feedback on statewide bicycle and pedestrian safety issues.
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will assist NCDOT in assessing the public's needs and concerns regarding bicycle and pedestrian safety.
Your participation and comments are highly valued! You are welcome and encouraged to circulate the survey to friends and colleagues who reside in North Carolina. Survey responses will be collected through February 8.
The results will be used as a primer to for a series of roundtable discussions scheduled for later this year and will be helpful in determining the level of public support for future investment in the state's bicycle and pedestrian network.
The survey is being administered in partnership between NCDOT Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation and theInstitute for Transportation Research and Education Bicycle and Pedestrian Program at North Carolina State University. For more information, please contact Sarah O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org.
