Bicycle Longmont added $10 to tickets issued as a result of a moving violation. This affects bikes, motorists, motorcyclists etc. The money can be used for traffic safety education including bike education programs and classes. It cannot be used for staff time or projects. We modeled it after a program in Fort Collins CO, they added $35 to tickets.

The Longmont fund is accumulating about $3,000/month. Fort Collins collects north of $350,000 to $400,000 per year.

Hello ThinkTank'ers,

In order to broaden our efforts in education and advocacy efforts I am soliciting for examples of the types of campaigns you've been successful (and unsuccessful) with as well as the message you were trying to drive home.  Keep it short, keep it simple, or if you want to wax poetic I'm happy to read a lengthy treatise as well.  

1. Campaign type (e-mail, workshop, radio/tv PSA, poster, tradeshow booth, et al)
2. What was the message you were trying to convey (safe riding techniques, helmet use, bike lights, share the road, etc)
3. Was a measurable goal in the message/campaign's success defined and if so how was it measured?  
4. What city, state, country are you from?


Full disclosure: I am requesting this information not on behalf of our Bike Kitchen but rather our city Bike Board of which I am also a member.
