NBC5 Investigates: Distractions While Driving for Police Officers in N. Texas

According to an investigation done by NBC5 – Investigates, There are have been 18 crashes with the Arlington PD and 15 with the Fort Worth PD in the last couple of years.  Other departments across North Texas have also shown a relatively high number of crashes.  These crashes have been mostly due to distractions in the Police Cars – mainly there on-board computers.  Policy changes have been made that severely limit the use of these computers while driving.  One button responses are allowed, but anything more requires that the officer pull over.  In the past many departments simply urged officers to pull over for when texting more than one button responses; Now, it has become enforceable policy for many departments.
Scott Friedman, Eva Parks, Peter Hull, and Shane Allen contributed to the investigation report

Proposal to Vulnerable Road User Law via @DallasPD

The most common factor of a bicycle/vehicle accident involves bicyclist entering the roadway from a sidewalk.

When on the road, cyclists are subject to the same laws as vehicles.

Cyclists riding on public sidewalks will yield right of way to pedestrians

{Additional responsibilities can be found in Chapter 9 of the City of Dallas City Code.}
Here are some Proposals: to the City Council for the Vulnerable Road User Law.  A full briefing will be given at a later date

Bike lanes will be designated by striping and pavement markings exclusive for use of bicyclists

Cycle Tracks is a one or two way lane separated from motor vehicle Traffic and distinct from the sidewalk for cyclist.

Shared lanes is open for all vehicle use, with markings indicating the appropriate positioning for the cyclist.

The proposed Vulnerable Road User law will include only human powered wheeled vehicles and will define what is a safe turn, designates cyclist lane when possible.  Throwing or projecting items at cyclist is also specifically addressed

There is also a proposal to increase Buffering Bike lanes throughout city of Dallas.  A buffered Bike lane has space between bike lane & adjacent travel lane
