Southern city seeks street strike site sightings

https://www.al.com/news/huntsville/2...ose-calls.html

> Huntsville is asking its large bicycling community to share its stories of bad roads, near misses with vehicles and other bad riding experiences. It’s a new program called “See and Be Seen” that started in January, and it will influence road projects and police enforcement.

> The city says the See and Be Seen forms aren’t for reporting criminal offenses. But they will affect roads, and police will be reading them. Cyclists making reports may be contacted by the city’s Bicycle Advisory and Safety Committee, a city employee or the police.

“I am tired of the negligence, abuse and straight up malice cyclists suffer every single day,” Andriulli said. “This is a way to raise visibility to the city so they can start doing something, anything to improve facilities and enforcement.” Strong words from a local club spokesman and program coordinator. Good for them, but it needs to apply to the cyclists also.

That's a tongue twister. Alliteration.

We have that here in California, called StreetStory; I've made several reports. Now we just need local governments to use the data.
