The Colorado Highways Department is currently developing a plan to increase the safety of cyclists and pedestrians on the state’s vast highways.
The goal of the plan, which has been in the works for years, is to install “highway-safe bicycle racks” in the back of every car and bike that’s driven onto the state highway system.
In addition to providing safety, the racks will also help to prevent collisions, which is something that the Department hopes will encourage people to walk and cycle more.
According to the Department’s website, the goal is to create a system that will make cycling safer for all road users and the environment, while also providing a viable transportation option for those who don’t have a vehicle.
In a statement to BikePortland, a department spokesperson said that the bike racks will be installed at five locations across the state, including the popular Rocky Mountain National Park, the Rocky Mountain Crest Trail, the North Cascades Wilderness Area, and the Highway 520 Overpass.
The department hopes that the racks, which will be placed at five different locations along the highway system, will help to “make biking safer and more enjoyable for all users and reduce traffic collisions.”
The Department is also encouraging drivers to make a conscious effort to “use all available parking and travel lanes.”
“It’s important that everyone is aware that these racks will not only reduce the amount of vehicle time that people spend on our highways, but will also provide a safe, convenient, and convenient place for people to park,” said the spokesperson.
“The racks will assist the driver in reducing the number of vehicles that enter and exit the roadway and also encourage more people to use the public parking lot.”
The racks will feature two large metal panels, which can be secured to the vehicle by either a chain or a safety tether.
A safety tether will be secured around the vehicle for easy access.
If you’ve ever ridden on the highway, you know that when you are going to stop to make an emergency stop, you are constantly on the lookout for the rack.
The Department says that it will install racks in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
