Bike Safety Classes are offered as part of the Bike Diversion Program. These classes are part of a program initiative in partnership with Santa Clara County Superior Court, Traffic Division, to educate cyclists about fundamental bicycle safety and the Rules of the Road.
Faculty and staff residing in University housing may request a security assessment by trained SUDPS crime prevention staff. Stanford building managers may also request an assessment of their facilities.
The assessment will include a review of areas such as doors, locks, windows, and the general perimeter.
If you are going to be away from your home for a period of time and wish the Department of Public Safety to check your home periodically, complete the following form and return it to SUDPS (If you are a frequent traveler, please send us updated information on your absences).

What is the Bike Diversion Program?
If you have not previously been issued a bicycle citation within the last 18 months you may attend a bike safety class in lieu of appearing in court and, possibly, being ordered to pay a fine. This class is not mandatory, but if you choose to attend you must register and attend a Bike Safety class within 30 days of the date on your citation.
