Idaho City Wants to Reduce Crashes Between Bikes and Cars

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Officials in southwestern Idaho are looking for ways to reduce the growing number of crashes involving pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers in Boise.

The Idaho Statesman reports that in response to a series of recent crashes left two cyclists and four pedestrians dead and injured more, community leaders held a summit earlier this month to examine ways to make the streets safer for all.

Police say there’s no one factor behind the recent crashes. They’ve launched an occasional series of foot patrols focused on educating jaywalkers and drivers about pedestrian safety. Ada County Highway District spokesman Craig Quintana says the agency plans to add more than 400 miles of bike lanes on every major route over the next four decades.
