For the first full week in March, we have been focusing our travel-safety campaign messaging on people walking. Next week we'll take a closer look at people biking.

”With more people walking and biking around our beautiful community, and in light of recent events, we recognize the importance of drawing more attention to travel safety,” said Police Chief and Executive Director for Community Safety Chris Blue. “We’re taking this opportunity to further educate our residents and visitors on best practices for safely traveling through our community. We’ll be doing so in addition to our normal enforcement practices throughout town.”
“We have received an outpouring of concern for safety for the pedestrians in our community and—with that concern—many requests for improvements,” said Town Manager Roger Stancil. “A group of town staff members representing many of our departments meet once a week to discuss ways to improve travel throughout our community and will be discussing these requests and other ways to continue improving travel safety in our community.”
Throughout the month of March you will see an education campaign focused on these efforts. Additional messages throughout March will be shared on the Chapel Hill Police Department’s social media channels (townofchapelhill.org/socialmedia) and each week will be documented in Chapel Hill eNews (sign up at townofchapelhill.org/signup).
