This story came across in Today's News and the title caught my attention. Hiring a "BIKE BOSS" in Salt Lake City, Utah. Your job would be to make bicycling conditions safer. The position pays $38,000 a year and the official job title is a Public Works Bicycle Coordinator. In the article, Councilman Arlyn Bradshaw commented on the Council's decision to fund and allocate the position saying "Its a public safety issue" and noted that 66 auto-bicycle accidents occurred in 2011 in the area served by the Unified Police District. With so many people still out of work and the story being transportation related, I thought it worthwhile to post.
If you would like to read more or find out more about the position, here is the original story:
