Watch For Me NC

July 17, 2020

The Watch for Me NC program aims to reduce pedestrian and bicycle injuries and deaths through a comprehensive, targeted approach of public education, community engagement, and high visibility law enforcement.

As part of the Watch For Me NC safety program, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and UNC’s Highway Safety Research Center are offering “Enforcement for Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety.”  This free, full-day training will be offered to all sworn law enforcement officers seeking pedestrian and bicyclist safety training.
