The Newport Beach Police Department, in a bid to improve bicycle safety in the area, has begun an effort to single out for improvement those areas in the city that tend to be hazardous for cyclists. The need for the effort was brought into stark relief following a tragedy that occurred last September. Officials are using computer analysis to figure out what the most high-risk areas are, while officers have stepped up their efforts to enforce existing laws. Education is also being promoted.
