…Speaking of educating motorists, I met Julie Engeman the other day (virtually, anyway) after a comment about driver’s education caught my eye on Facebook.

Julie and her husband, Steve, talk to young motorists in driver’s ed classes. They’ve seen, first-hand, the damage that careless drivers can do.

Powerful stuff. They’re still doing this important work. I’ll pass along other ideas as I come across them.

If you’re a cyclist, think about how you can help educate the public.

Share your idea here if you’d like to. Just add a comment.

Then go do it.
