Safety Updates

Soon you’ll likely be seeing more bikes on the road. May 8 is Bike to School Day and May 17 is Bike to Work Day; both coincide with Bicycle Safety Month. May is also Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, so it’s a perfect time for a reminder to Share the Road.

Drivers Drivers, sharing the road begins with the understanding that bicyclists and motorcyclists have the same rights as you. Look for cyclists where vehicles do not appear, like before making a left-hand turn at an intersection.
Bicyclists Bicyclists must obey signs and signals. Ride defensively, assuming others cannot see you, and don’t let yourself be distracted by music, an electronic device, or anything else that takes your focus off the road.
Pedestrians Pedestrians should also follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals—which are there to protect you. If there isn’t a sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far from vehicles as possible.
