Houston Police Department

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DATE: March 10, 2017 9:03:56 AM CST

MEDIA ALERT: Mayor, Police Chief to Announce Kick-Off of Bike Safety Campaign

At a news conference at 3:45 p.m. TODAY (Friday, March 10), Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Police Chief Art Acevedo and Health Department Assistant Director Dr. Faith Foreman will announce the beginning of a new Safe Passage Campaign to protect bicyclists on Houston streets.

The news briefing will be held in the Media Briefing Room on the first floor of the HPD Edward A. Thomas Building at 1200 Travis.

In 2013, Houston City Council passed the Safe Passing/Vulnerable Road User Ordinance that requires passing vehicles be at least three feet away from bicyclists and passing trucks be at least six feet from bicyclists.  This new campaign will raise awareness and enhance enforcement of the ordinance to make Houston's roads safer for cyclists.

The three-pronged approach will include education, awareness and enforcement.  During the campaign, electronic public safety messages will be displayed, brochures will be handed out and HPD will conduct enforcement with a new C3FT device, which measures the distance a passing car is from a bicyclist.

Following the news conference, several vehicles displaying the three-foot and six-foot rule and the C3FT device will be displayed.
