Success with the NEW New Mexico Driver's Manual

Written by Tammy Schurr   

New Mexico Driver’s Manual – “We finally have more than one sentence about bicycles in theNew Mexico Drivers Manual!” - Cat Downing, LCI #3182, Santa Fe, NM, June 16, 2011

Thanks to the diligent work of folks in Santa Fe we now have more than a single sentence in the New Mexico Driver’s Manual about how motorist and cyclists can share the road with each other. Check out the revised Manual (click here), specifically pages 25 & 25. There are also new test questions on the Driver’s Test based on the new information in the NM Driver’s Manual. Many thanks to Cat Downing, Lisa Miles, Shelley Robinson, Gretchen Grogan of theSanta Fe BTAC; Tom Trowbridge NMDOT Bike Pedestrian & Equestrian Coordinator; and Raul Alvarez and Mac Lewis of the NM Motor Vehicle Dept.

“Partial Paving:” BCNM’s effort to stop the systematic destruction of bicycle facilities on New Mexico’s state highways

Prepared for National Bike Summit, Washington DC, March 8-11, 2011

ISSUE: In the past decade, the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) has institutionalized the practice of applying partial overlays on New Mexico’s state highways.  Today it is difficult to find a highway shoulder in New Mexico that does not have one or more seams posing a significant hazard and inconvenience to bicyclists and other highway users.  These seams, along with the failure to maintain shoulders and the frequent use of “rumble strips” that fail to leave sufficient space for use by bicyclists, are a violation of NMDOT’s requirement to provide for multi-modal transportation along highways under state and federal law.
