In an effort to make the town a safer place for pedestrians and bicyclists, the Police Department will use a $3,000 grant provided by the state Executive Office of Public Safety and Security for education, enforcement, and outreach measures. Concord’s force is one of 48 to receive the state grants, which can help fund such measures as targeted enforcement and decoy patrols, breakaway signs, and crosswalk reflective tape. Officials hope the enforcement techniques and equipment will help the department analyze traffic patterns and crack down on drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists who do not share the road appropriately. “Bicyclists and pedestrians are particularly vulnerable road users, because they may not be immediately visible to drivers and, unlike those in vehicles, nothing protects them from impact,” said Police Chief Barry R. Neal.
