Yesterday the DC Council Committee on the Judiciary held the third in its series of hearing on pedestrian and bicycle safety. Jameel Alsalam testified at that hearing on the work that the BAC has been doing with MPD over the past seven months, in particular addressing communication between MPD and the cycling community and the training measures that MPD has been taking to address problems being investigated by the committee. Important steps are being taken, but there is still more work to do, and we need to make sure that the measures that MPD are taking are effective in eliminating the underlying problems.
