“Driving Change” in Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Grand Rapids has become a really big cycling community, and this time of year you’re going to see lots of bikes on the road.

Therefore, there’s a real need for drivers and cyclists to understand the rules of the road and the different city ordinances that support them.

We caught up with the city’s traffic manager and a Grand Rapids police officer who patrols the city on his bike… take a look in the video above!

The city’s “Driving Change” campaign kicked off this month, so if you live in the area or if your travels take you into Grand Rapids, you’ll be hearing about it through billboards, social media, print, and the radio.
