We are your Lake Norman area advocacy group for safer streets.
Streets are not only for motorized vehicles. They are transportation pathways used by cars, motorcycles, trucks, cyclists, and pedestrians. We exist to make these streets safer for all users.
Street Access For Everyone, Lake Norman (SAFE) is a 501(c)(3) born out of a need to increase the safety of cyclists and pedestrians on our local roadways. This occurred following a spate of accidents involving local cyclists, including the death of a local cyclist, and several local pedestrians.
SAFE was established in January 2020 and received non-profit status in October 2020. We work with local law enforcement and municipal governments as well as State organizations (e.g., BikeLawNC) to educate motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.
To make our Lake Norman Area a safer place for all road users including car drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, eBike users, pedestrians, kids on bikes, and moms with strollers.
Collaborating with local towns regarding specific pedestrian and cycling safety issues.
We plan to ask local North Carolina politicians a handful of questions related to their position on pedestrians and cycling laws and safety.
Their responses will be shown here.
