Road respect and bike safety go hand in hand

Road Respect was the theme for a Cache Valley Law Enforcement Safety Forum that was held in Logan Thursday. Gary Saxton, manager for the Logan Downtown Alliance, said the purpose of the forum was to learn about and discuss the most current codes and laws regarding drivers and cyclists.

Saxton organized the forum for the Utah Department of Public Safety and he said the goal is to find the best possible way to make the roads safer for both drivers and cyclists.

Part of the discussion Thursday was about the Road Respect Tour which will be coming through Logan.

“The Road Respect Tour is a bicycle ride that covers the state of Utah,” Saxton explained, “where cyclists are invited to join and participate in different legs of the ride. Logan is going to be the final leg of the ride on Saturday, June 21st.”

Saxton said it is actually a safety campaign to help motorists and cyclists get along on the roads in a way that everyone is safe and courteous to each other.
