The issue of bicycle safety has been a topic of interest by various County groups over the past several years. Discussions regarding bicycle safety have increased over the past couple of years following incidents between motorists and bicyclists. In response, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has supported efforts to increase safety awareness between motorists and bicyclists, and instructed the development of the Orange Unified Transportation Board (OUTBoard) Bicycle Safety Report (PDF) in June, 2015. The BOCC approved a Resolution (PDF) creating a Bicycle Safety Task Force on March 1, 2016. Task Force members were appointed by the BOCC on June 21, 2016.
