Today I picked up 8 new 3' 4' 5' safe passing signs for Newport. The State Prison sign shop made them and they look great. They are 3' x 6' and reflective. They look like the bumper sticker up in the right corner of this page. Just waiting for NH DOT to give final approval on the locations I GPSed for them and then Newport DPW will install. Thinking Rt. 10 North by the High School will be the first location. Thanks to everyone that contributed towards the purchase. We are still accepting contributions if anyone is inclined. Checks can be mailed to; NH Pass ECON 15 Sunapee St. Newport, NH 03773 and made out to NH Pass ECON. Dan

Yes, good job Dan! You have put a ton of effort over a long period of time to get this project off the ground. Thank you for taking this on.

Yes, thank you Dan, Ryan and everyone else working on this project.

Yesterday afternoon riding south on Rte 10 just north of Corbin Rd as far to the right on the breakdown lane as I could be, when a black car passed me about two feet on my side of the white line. I was too blind to read the number plate, but did a lot of adrenaline rush cursing.

Dana glad you are okay, Guys it is not our fault that motor vehicles are not watching the road but we need to do everything possible to make ourselves visible. Most of you know I have been riding with a flashing red light on the rear and flashing white strobe on the front during the daylight for the past couple years since we had the bad accidents in the area. I also wear bright jerseys. I want to encourage all of you to light up your bikes and become more visible. Don't give these bastards any excuses if they hit us. During last weeks CCD ride about half of us had flashing rear lights. It makes a difference. Please get set up.

Dan, this is excellent advice but I also feel there needs to be a greater police presence on Route 10 addressing these issues. I see State's patrolling 11 east / west between Newport and Claremont ALL the time, but almost never any police on Rt 10. To be fair I probably drive 11, 4 times more then 10 and I don't drive very much. That said the vast majority of local problems I have seen or heard about are not on the Route 11 section I referenced, they are on Rt 10 North. Seems like I have been yelled at, horn blown at, buzzed, etc on 10 North at least twice as much as anywhere else.

My 2 cents...
