Nonprofit organization Please BE KIND to Cyclists (Please BE KIND) has recently launched the new program DriveKind RideKind which was jointly developed with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT.) The DriveKind RideKind program is an effort to educate and inspire all road users toward a safe behavioral change and encourage personal responsibility.  Creating as safe a roadway as possible for all users is the ultimate goal of the initiative.

The DriveKind RideKind program details many ways to stay safe on the roadways in their new educational video and Public Service Announcements (PSAs). The :15 and :30 second PSAs were developed by Please BE KIND as part of a TxDOT grant to educate the general public about where to access educational materials

These videos were developed specifically for driver education instruction and schools, defensive driving classes, commercial driving schools, law enforcement academies in Texas, as well as the general public. These videos are also available to view on this site.

DriveKind RideKind promotes safe practices by motorists as they share Texas roads with vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians.

Please take our short survey to help us assess what you have learned through DriveKind RideKind materials.

As cycling culture continues to grow, more and more people riding their bikes. In order to maximize safety, all motorists and cyclists should educate themselves on the rules of the road to stay safe. When people set out in their car or on their bike they should always remember to DriveKind RideKind.
