Slow ME Down
Speeding endangers cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine has launched a statewide anti-speeding campaign intended to help change people’s attitudes about speeding in cars.
As the situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine office remains closed to employees and visitors. We apologize for the inconvenience but wish to prioritize the health and safety of our community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to staff by email. We appreciate your support and understanding at this time.
For recommendations about how to bike safely during a pandemic, watch this video created by the BCM in collaboration with FRAME Strategies.
Read the BCM’s recommended practices for safe riding during COVID-19 here.
Slow ME Down
Speeding endangers cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers. Even small increases in speed increase the lethality of a crash with a vulnerable user, and speed affects everything from how fast a car can stop to how quickly a moment of distraction becomes a disaster.
