Chat with the Chief 2013

March 21st 6:00pm

Bicycle Sport Shop (So Lamar Blvd & Barton Springs Rd)

Austin Cycling Association and Please Be Kind to Cyclists are pleased to invite you to our 5th annual Chat with the Chief. As a community, cyclists are concerned about the increased number of traffic fatalities, and recent, high-profile cases raise questions about how the legal process functions.

Therefore, we are assembling a panel of experts who can speak to issues related to traffic violations. The goal is to develop an understanding of the process and to define methods to improve the process, for everyone from the officer writing the citation, through to the prosecuting attorney, to the cyclists themselves.

Our intent is to begin a discussion of ways in which the community can support and engage with the various agencies as we create change to improve the safety of all roadway users.

We will meet Thursday, March 21st at 6pm at Bicycle Sport Shop for a short Social Ride. After the ride we will have an opportunity to socialize and enjoy complimentary refreshments and then at 7:30 we will begin the Panel Discussion. We expect the event to end at around 9pm.

For any questions or comments regarding this event please contact Eileen Schaubert or Preston Tyree at apdforumataustincycling [dot] org
