Share the Road Safety Class

The Share the Road Safety Class (SRSC) was developed for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists who have received a citation for being in the wrong place on the road (such as a car in a bicycle lane), failure to yield the right of way and/or defective equipment or non-use of safety equipment. See Violations for the complete list. The class focuses on traffic law and safety issues as they relate to bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists needing to share the public right-of-way in a safe and lawful manner.

If you have received a citation, successful completion of this class may qualify you to receive a dismissal (no conviction) or a sentence of discharge (conviction entered but no fine) for your citation. You are responsible for providing the court with the original Certificate of Completion by the deadline set by the officer noted on your citation or by the deadline set by the court.

One recent class participant (a bicyclist who ran a red light) says he's glad he took the class, "Not because I saved myself some money, but because I'm pretty sure it may have saved my life. Or someone else's."

To register

Class pre-registration is required. Eligibility requirements (see Violations) are determined by the officer and the court. Any violation that is cited as a contributing factor in a Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) incident or traffic collision involving physical injury or property damage is not eligible for dismissal or sentence of discharge through the Share the Road Safety Class.
