2020 Safe Cycling Scholarship

The personal injury attorneys at Felix Gonzalez Law Firm have dedicated their practice to protecting those who have been injured due to the negligence of others. They care about everyone’s safety, especially cyclists on the road. That’s why this year they are offering a scholarship about safe cycling.

Cyclists are faced with many distractions and dangers on the road. It is important for citizens to take every step possible to be safe on the roads, for not only themselves, but others around them. For example, in San Antonio, the city is debating taking the extra precaution to ensure safe conditions by expanding bike lanes.

For this scholarship, please explain how governmental measures, like bike lanes, can help prevent accidents in your own community.  Discuss old and new laws, education around dangers of cycling in an unsafe space, and if you think more could be done to ensure the safety of cyclists.

Once all submissions have been received, the entries will be reviewed, and one student will be selected to receive a $1,000 award. The award will be given to the person who best describes The effect of safe cycling in their community and/or changes that are being implemented currently.
