Safety, Education, and Enforcement Committee Meeting (February 16, 2012)

Safety, Education, and Enforcement Committee meetings are normally scheduled for second Tuesday of even-numbered months; however,  that would place the February meeting on Valentine's day.

As opposed to meeting on his own, or angering our significant others, Jameel Alsalam, committee chair and Ward 4 representative is rescheduling.

The meeting will be held Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 6:30pm at Teaism, 400 8th Street NW.

Our agenda:
  1. Reviewing outreach and training materials provided by MPD
  2. Discussing options to improve road safety through traffic enforcement in 2012
  3. Re-creation of traffic enforcement division
  4. More frequent cross-district traffic enforcement efforts
  5. Enforcement action targeting three-foot passing law
  6. Other ideas?
Lt. Breul of the Metropolitan Police Department has provided a copy of the electronic training related to bicycling taken by all MPD officers, along with a couple of outreach brochures.We invite you to provide comments on these documents.
