Drive With Care

Thanks to your support we have re-launched the Drive With Care Campaign!

Our BikePGH Drive With Care Indiegogo Campaign, was a success.

Now, we’re taking our message directly to drivers:  someone you care about rides a bike. People who ride bicycles are all around us. From behind the windshield it may look like they’re are all the same, but we come from all walks of life and experiences. And there are far too many crashes and aggressive encounters that could be avoided if everyone simply recognized that all road users are people.

Pittsburgh that person on a bike next to you is someone’s mother, father, sister or brother.  And that cyclist could be your carpenter, your child’s friend, your priest or even one of your sports heroes. The response we received from our first ever crowd-funding campaign was an outpouring of support for Drive With Care!  In a testament to the importance of safe streets for everyone and the strength of our community, we raised over $50,000 to make this project a reality.

Through billboards, bus shelter ads, and encouraging drivers to simply drive with care, together we will create more positive relationships between road users. This in turn will make everyones days better and lives safer.

Featured on the ads are Pittsburghers who ride bicycles including Attorney Edgar Snyder:
