The City of Kinston has been selected to participate in the 2021 cohort of Watch For Me NC, an initiative run by North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center (HSRC) to reduce pedestrian and bicycle injuries and deaths through public education, community engagement, and specific law enforcement efforts. The program involves the work of community partners from all angles related to transportation and safety to improve education, enforcement, and generally safe transportation practices.
Beginning in late summer, the Kinston Police Department and the Watch for Me Coalition will be participating in many safety events, trainings, and operations, working closely with local organizations and businesses to promote safety for all who walk, bike, or drive in the City of Kinston.
Stay tuned for future events!
