Share The Road With Bicyclists

“If only I’d been watching for bicyclists.”

With more and more people riding bikes as a means of transportation, exercise and recreation, it’s important for drivers and riders to be extra careful and obey the rules of the road. This safety campaign tip card reminds us there are “No Regrets When You Drive With Care” and when you follow these basic traffic guidelines:

  • Share the road with bicyclists.
  • Stop before turning right on red.
  • Passing bicyclists too closely is dangerous and illegal.
  • Focus on the road.  Avoid aggressive driving.
