Stuart Harrod and Donna Hecker, two members of Walk Bike Frankfort, have had many conversations over coffee about the importance of safety awareness for both cyclists and motorists.
When the position of PR/Outreach/Membership Chair became open, Donna jumped at the chance to get more involved with Walk Bike Frankfort. At the time, she had just finished an unsuccessful primary race and was looking for charities to donate unused campaign funds to.
The last $200 in Donna's campaign account went to Walk Bike Frankfort with the stipulation that it be used to pay for the production of a safety awareness public safety announcement.
The message of the PSA was intended to promote mutual respect between drivers and cyclists. Harvey Couch of Cable 10 Productions stepped up with a script; a couple of more or less willing actors were recruited and we coined the phrase, "Safety- it's a two way street!"
