EDUCTION FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS
Law enforcement officers are essential partners for improving the safety of Georgia’s roads for all road users, including bicyclists. Many vehicle crashes can be prevented if both cyclists and motorists follow the rules of the road. Georgia Bikes offers a free POST-certified training for your local police department (Course ID: NTE04G). To schedule a training, contact our safety education programs manager.
