Partnering with law enforcement is an essential component of bicycle and pedestrian programs that seek to enable all users to share roadways safely. These partnerships help to provide information about and ensure consistent enforcement of pedestrian and bicycle safety laws. They also address motorist as well as pedestrian and cyclist behavior. Two NTPP communities - Columbia and Sheboygan County - have developed formal partnerships with local law enforcement departments.

Lessons Learned

Spring 2010 -- Prepared by the USDOT/Volpe Center for the Federal Highway Administration and NTPP Pilot Communities

Section 1807 of the Safe, Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users established the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP) in August 2005. Over the span of four years (2007-2010), the legislation authorizes $25 million for each of the NTPP's four pilot communities to construct and invest in nonmotorized transportation infrastructure and programs. The purpose of the NTPP is "to demonstrate the extent to which bicycling and walking can carry a significant part of the transportation load, and represent a major portion of the transportation solution, within selected communities."
