Where is the SAFETY in traffic for the biking community?

Discuss what story the data tells us and what the research indicates for safer biking on New Mexico roads.

Linda Atkinson, Executive Director, DWI Resource Center, founded the DWI Resource Center (1992) and the Victim’s Rights Project (2002). As one of the foremost experts on the DWI issues in New Mexico, she has held several Governor-appointed positions, developed data driven, research based policies and programs aimed at reducing DWI deaths and injuries. Ms. Atkinson is involved in public policy development and legislative advocacy, legal advocacy for victim’s rights, trains court monitors, and also serves as a consultant to local businesses regarding Drug Free Workplace policies, implementation and education.

A more recent project has been developing a crash mapping application (www.nmcrashmap.com) for Dona Ana County. It is used as a planning tool for law enforcement (and the public), showing where locations are at high risk for crashes to occur by day of week and #me of day. As funding allows, we plan to provide the app to all communities in New Mexico.

Project Heart Start (PHS). This simple 40 minute training session will be presented to interested NMTS members, and visitors.
At the October 17, 2016 meeting we are privileged to have certified instructors from Project Heart Start attend to educate NMTS members as well as visitors on the use of compression-only CPR.
The PHS program has two components. The first is a 12 minute video that demonstrates how to perform compression-only CPR. The second component is a 15-30 minute hands-on session with a mannequin to learn how to actually perform the chest compressions. Both components will be covered in this meeting.
