KURE BEACH, N.C. : June 1st, 2015 - This information is to bring the Kure Beach citizens up to date on an area of the Group’s project that we feel has been adequately addressed, but to finalize this section it must be presented to the citizens for any additional concerns that may have been overlooked by the Group.  
The Kure Beach Citizens Advisory Group (KBCAGT) has been formed to evaluate the safety and flow of traffic on the town’s roadways. It enlists the contributions of citizens in all phases of the program, which includes: potential problem areas, potential solutions to the problems, and an evaluation of the suggested solutions. The group is not part of the town’s government, and is not aligned with any special interest groups. The KBCAGT meets at Kure Beach Town Hall every Thursday at 9 AM (except major holidays). All meetings are open to the public.
The following is a list of considerations arrived at by the Group: Use Bike paths where they are provided; follow the same principles that are prescribed by law when on a city roadway that does not have a bike path; consider traffic density, time of day, weather conditions (think of these items not only from the cyclist’s position, but from a motorist’s position also), wear clothing that will make the cyclist standout in the environment that will be present during your ride, be sure to have reflectors on your bike, if riding at night it is highly recommended that you have a clear white flashing light on the front and a red light on the back of your bike.
Bikers are required, by law, to follow the same rules of the road as motorized vehicles, those stop signs are also intended for cyclist too. Children below the age of seventeen are required to wear a helmet, by State law. Cyclist should always travel in the same direction as the motorized vehicles.
Foot traffic should always face oncoming traffic; many of the items that aid in making a cyclist more visible to motorized drivers should also be employed by individuals that fall into the foot category. The Town of Kure Beach has put out a brochure that residents and guests should find helpful in making their travels safe and pleasurable while traveling the town’s roadways. It would be advisable to follow these rules and guidelines on the Town’s interior roads too.
A more detailed presentation of this information can be found on the Group’s Web site at https://kurebeachcagt.wordpress.com
