The coalition was founded in January
2013 and is lead by Dare County
Commissioner, Max Dutton.
Since then, the coalition has forged
strong relationships with NC
Department of Transportation in an
effort to provide brochures, stickers and
other resources to the Outer Banks.
Major employers such as Food Lion are
also among the membership along
with several town officials from Corolla
to Hatteras in hopes of garnering
participation from all regions of the
Education and Awareness
The Outer Banks Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Coalition has also
worked closely with Dare County in creating a training and
awareness video that will air on Channel 20, YouTube and will
be used in many employee packets that will be distributed later
this spring to businesses interested in providing safety materials
to their students and employees.
Plans are also taking place for several community events
through out the year with local schools and organizations –
more details will be posted on the coalitions Facebook Page
and Twitter Account in coming days. Max Radio of the
Carolina’s are also running radio spots on air as public service
