The Watch for Me NC program aims to reduce pedestrian and bicycle injuries and deaths through a comprehensive, targeted approach of public education, community engagement, and high visibility law enforcement.

As part of the Watch For Me NC safety program, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and UNC’s Highway Safety Research Center are offering “Enforcement for Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety.”  This free, full-day training will be offered to all sworn law enforcement officers seeking pedestrian and bicyclist safety training.

The training provides law enforcement officers with the special traffic management knowledge and skills they need to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety in their communities. Sgt. Brian Massengill with the Durham Police Department will present the latest pedestrian and bicyclist safety enforcement information. Topic areas include:


·         Where pedestrians and bicyclists fit in

·         Engineering for pedestrian/bicycle safety

·         How pedestrian/bicycle crashes occur

·         The role of education and enforcement

·         Relevant laws and enforcement practices

·         Mock crosswalk enforcement operations

·         Crash investigation and reporting

·         Potential law enforcement partners


The training also includes hands-on, in-the-field training on how to conduct a Pedestrian Crosswalk Enforcement Operation.
