Slow Your Roll Campaign
Montana State University Students, Faculty and Staff:
As campus continues to grow, the number of conflicts between pedestrians, our most common commuter type, and personal mobility devices, such as bicycles and skateboards, has increased. Some of these incidents have resulted in injuries.
Starting Sept. 16, you will see a number of new signs around campus. These are being placed in locations where traffic congestion is high and where it is especially important to slow down, be aware, and operate your device properly in order to protect others around you.
Newly installed signs will have messages like “Wheels Must Yield,” “Give Pedestrians a Brake,” and “Dismount Zone: Walk Your Ride.”
If you see “Wheels Must Yield” or “Give Pedestrians a Brake,” please ride no faster than a jogging pace and refrain from weaving in and out of other campus users. Even if you see or hear others, they may not be able to see or hear you so let others know you are there with a “Hi there, I’m on your left/right.” No one should be surprised or scared when traversing Montana State University’s campus.
If you see “Dismount Zone: Walk Your Ride,” please dismount your bike, longboard, horse, scooter or other transportation device and WALK them through the dismount zone. These areas are not wide enough for pedestrians to comfortably share the sidewalk with transportation devices.
Thank you for taking the time to be informed and to care about your fellow student, faculty or staff member and visitors to campus.
