The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is working with the Wisconsin bike federation to help spread awareness of bike riding safety.

This comes just weeks after two bike fatalities in Dane County.

The DOT reported nine bike fatalities this year.

“There are attitudes from motorists as well as attitudes from bicycles, that's where sometimes the conflict happens,” said director of Bureau of Transportation Safety, Sandra Huxtable.

It's a conflict that comes from drivers losing track of bicyclists, and some cyclists ignoring the rules.
